Efficient Cable Assembly & Wire Harness Ensure Quality PCB Assembly & Manufacturing
Cable assemblies and wire harnesses facilitate easy installation of complicated wire hookups, minimizing the probability of failure. These cable assemblies and wire harnesses encase the wires together in protective bundles eliminating the chances damages that can be caused by heat or water, or any other natural or unnatural entities. So, let us dig into the aspects that make wire harness assembly process efficient, and how they ensure best quality PCB assembly and manufacturing.
1. Quality is the Foremost Choice
Quality ensures quality, and is the foremost choice. The quality of PCB manufacturing and assembly depends heavily upon cable assemblies and wire harnesses, especially in the long term. Procuring industry specific certifications testifies quality in a tangible manner. In the absence of industry specific certifications, broad-level manufacturing certifications such as the ISO 9001:2008 can be procured to ensure quality manufacturing.
2. Easier Assembly Ensure Safe PCBs
Efficient cable assembling and wire harnessing ensures simplicity and ease. This ensures safe PCBs with miniscule chances of damages or failure. Professional wire harness assembly process facilitates effective and quality PCBs complying with safety standards.
3. Cost-effective Methods Give Cost-effective Results
The market is driven by cut-throat competition and obliging customer demands. There is constant pressure on PCB manufacturers to increase the profit margins by devising cost-effective solutions. Among the several variables in the design of cable assembly and wire harness on the PCB manufacturing checklist, one of the most important variables is cost effectiveness.
4. Ease of Manufacture Ensures Reliability
A cable assembly or wire harness optimized for manufacturability has positive impact on the cost and reliability of the PCB assembly and manufacturing. Once the basic specifications are laid down, characteristics such as types of wires and connectors; use of jacketing and shielding; type of cable ties and labels, and their placement; and the overall tolerances have an important part to play in determining the material and manufacturing costs, and the long-term reliability of the PCB assembly.
5. Experience is the Fountainhead of Perfection
Manufacturers have a varying range of experience, whether they are manufacturing a wide range of products or focusing only on a niche market. Always make sure the cable assembly and wire harnessing process is carried out by experienced manufacturers. One who possesses experience can only guarantee quality of both the cable assembly and wire harness, and the PCB assembly and manufacturing.
For EMS providers, it can be disastrous to undermine the value of designing perfect cable assemblies and wire harnesses. The quality of your PCB assembly and manufacturing is heavily dependent on the quality of cable assembly and wire harness. So, make sure to give the wire harness assembly process its due consideration.
