Harwin invests in US cabling facility for space work

Harwin has increased investment in its high-relibility cable assembly facility in the US.

Harwin’s cabling facility at Salem, New Hampshire addresses the space and avionics markets with prototyping, and electrical and mechanical testing of both cable and wire harnesses and coaxial cable assemblies.

The 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.
