Industrial and control cable assemblies are changing from a single trunk of large AWG wire to smart cables with mixed technologies and multiple breakouts. Kauffman Engineering was founded on industrial cable assemblies and wire harnesses. We have built millions of them with a wide array of different components. We would like to build yours, too.
SOME TIPS FOR SOURCING...
Industrial wire harnesses can be complex. Sometimes just making a drawing for that complex cable can be a daunting task. Often we find the best way is for the customer to build the cable, wire the box, or connect the leads and then send us the finished unit to document. Our team of engineers can use your sample and BOM to make drawings that make sense. This leads to repeatable quality and ease of modification.
Often as a product evolves through versions and designers, the individual connectors can vary due to knowledge, or parts on hand at that time. A “faston” can mean a lot of things to a lot of people. Chances are the production people know what they can substitute or what works best. By reviewing your terminal and connector list you can save money by consolidating parts.
With dozens or hundreds of connections you cannot trust visual or even partial inspection of your products. At Kauffman Engineering, we manufacture on color-coded test boards to build quality into the wire harness. Our quality procedures are second to none.
