Increased investment wins new business in space sector

Hi-rel connector and SMT board hardware manufacturer, Harwin, has announced that increased investment in its Salem, New Hampshire cable assembly facility is winning new business in the demanding and highly specialised space and avionics sector. At its US site, Harwin’s cabling capabilities include building to customer datasheet, prototyping, and electrical and mechanical testing of both cable and wire harnesses and coaxial cable assemblies.

Over the past twelve months, increased investment in equipment plus intensive additional staff development and training, has led to successful fulfilment of orders from a number of high-tech customers with exceptional quality requirements.

Prototypes and small builds for early stage projects with the additional advantage of no MOQ are a Harwin speciality proving particularly attractive to space and avionics customers. Harwin already boasts a strong presence in these markets through its world-class Hi-rel connector ranges, in particular, the award-winning 1.25mm pitch Gecko interconnect, which has been specified on multiple programmes from satellites and CubeSats to mission and safety-critical aircraft control systems.

Additional investment at Salem has resulted in an expanded QA Department, additional training - all of the cable assembly facility’s operators are trained to IPC620 crimping standards – and upgrading of warehouse management systems. Additional machinery purchased includes extra electrical testing stations, post-potting ovens, and the very latest wire cutting and stripping machinery.
