About Technical Cable Applications - Your Custom Cable Assemblies Experts

Technical Cable Applications is a contract cable manufacturer specializing in the field of custom cable assemblies and custom wiring harnesses. With a huge selection of automated and manual tools, equipment and parts to prepare outsourcing cable assembly products, Technical Cable can build your custom cables and inspect the finished cables for perfection. Our engineers and technicians are highly qualified and trained, and we have experts for each part of the prototyping, manufacturing, and testing processes that any full cable manufacturing project requires.

Your Bulk Cable Assembly Manufacturer for Custom and OEM Assemblies

We hold ourselves to extremely high cable standards and are UL certified for the United States and Canada for cable assembly, along with our ITAR certification for United States defense manufacturing. We are also ISO 9001:2015 certified as a contract cable manufacturer, which is an internationally recognized standard. Finally, we follow the quality control procedures as dictated by IPC/WHMA-A-620 Standard Revision D to ensure that each of our cable assemblies and custom wire harnesses are manufactured perfectly every time.

At Technical Cable Applications, the first and most important step of the cable manufacturing process is confirming your specifications. Manufacturing custom cables and harness assemblies requires custom solutions. Each assembly production is different, and each custom cable project brings forth new and exciting engineering. We constantly innovate and invest in new solutions and tools to speed up and improve our cable manufacturing processes. We also hire only the best engineers and technicians to prototype new builds, so that we can continually push the envelope and grow our manufacturing and custom wire capabilities each year. We're happy to provide custom cable solutions so your updated cables can meet and exceed new regulations for your industry for power, safety, and reliability, or just upgrade your product line if you require an edge over your competitors.

Ready For Any Custom Cable Order

Technical Cable Application's prototyping team works with the highly qualified cable manufacturers and cable assembly team on our staff. Together, they work to make sure that the services and parts needed are assembled and delivered perfectly. Technical Cable Applications performs manufacturing solutions quickly, without losing sight of the customer’s need for custom services and high-quality results. We keep the parts and tools on hand for most typical cable styles and connectors so that we can get to work right away on bulk orders of pre-existing or "off the shelf" assemblies, while also keeping our innovative engineers on site to assist with every new project we take on, and maintaining strong relationships with material providers so that we can order anything additional needed for a new project quickly. We can manufacture cable assemblies utilizing an extremely wide variety of connectors, components and conductor parts from all kinds of brands, such as Molex, TE, Hirose, JST or Mouser. Just provide your cable drawing so we can see what you're working with and request a quote.

Cable Manufacturers - Choose TCA For Custom Wire Harness and Cables

With your specifications, TCA orders any additional parts needed to begin proper cable assembly production. Automation has been developed for aspects of contract cable and harness assembly like automated wire cutting, stripping, crimping, 3D printing, and injection molding. We use automated work instruction systems developed in partnership with Scout Systems, which enable us to not only make our cable manufacturing as efficient as possible, but also improve our processes by letting us identify wasted effort and time more easily. Much of the work is custom and hand made as well, by IPC certified and trained cable technicians when necessary. Our team of technicians are experienced and qualified, and always ensure that every wire and cable they touch is assembled properly and carefully. A tour of our manufacturing facility will show that we are the cable manufacturer to trust as we are extremely rigid about quality control, inventory, and best practices not only to continue meeting our UL certifications which are randomly audited, but also because that's how we've operated our business since being founded in 2002.

The Custom Cable Manufacturer Process

At TCA, wire cutting is often the beginning of many projects if the cable drawing is already in place. This phase is mostly automated with our robotic despoiling and wire cutting machines to produce the correct cable lengths. Followed by stripping and adding custom connectors, the cable is stripped back to reveal its core so the next steps of cable assembly can be completed. This automation and the special machines that utilize it allow us to start with an extremely solid beginning for every cable and wire before further steps are completed.

With the cores exposed, custom connectors or conductors can be added. Doing this includes crimping and soldering the wire into the proper connections. Many manufacturing steps in this part are automated as well, and those that cannot be automated are done by hand by skilled custom operators. We are continually improving our crimping and soldering processes by acquiring new tools and machines, including the extremely powerful Schleuniger 36SP Crimp Center. Using the best and most powerful machines for precise work means that quality assurance is involved in every step of our cable manufacturing processes.

After the crimping and soldering processes have been completed, the terminated wires are gathered up and crafted into the contract harnesses themselves. This step requires most of the manual wire work from our technicians. Each wire is fed through or bundled together, taped off and measured to make sure the final dimensions match the manufacturer specifications. Technical Cable Applications adds coverings, braiding, heat shrinkable tubing, transition boots, and tubing products as required.

Cable Manufacturing Company Equipped For Your Custom Cable Requirements

When the cable manufacturing or custom wire harness is finished, a thorough inspection is completed of all assemblies, to inspect compared to the drawing for dimensions, continuity, and note compliance. Each step in the product inspection procedure is monitored and tracked. In the event of any failure to pass our strict tests for quality, we will immediately address and locate the issue, make it right, and ship quickly to ensure minimal delays. Any manufacturing failures are always fixed, and the parts are retested and sent to shipping when the manufacturing is approved. We partner with reliable and efficient shipping partners so we can manufacture and ship our products almost anywhere around the world.
