Aerospace Wire and Cable

aerospace wire & cable

Technical Cable Applications is based in the heart of one of the most heavily aerospace dominated areas in the United States, and we are the perfect partner for any aerospace manufacturer because of both our location and our extremely high cable manufacturing caliber. Founded in 2002, we have seen the aerospace explosion for commercial companies in Seattle firsthand, not to mention the Air Force presence that has been here since Fort Lewis was founded in 1917. We are excellently suited and prepared for all kinds of cable manufacturing needs across the many aerospace fields that are so strong here, including new commercial airliners and jets, military aerospace fighter and cargo jets, and experimental space travel aircraft. If you need data transfer cables for onboard electronics, power harnesses to ensure that there is no risk of power loss in the cabin, or battery related cables that will be able to continue working even with severe pressure and altitude changes, we have you covered as well.

We have the expertise and engineering knowledge to keep up with the requirements of the top aerospace manufacturers and companies in the area and the United States, including SpaceX, Blue Origin, and Boeing. We also can work with military requirements, like for the Air Force Joint Base Lewis–McChord here locally or elsewhere in the states. All aerospace equipment, wire and cable products require extremely high safety standards and reliability to keep aircraft in the air and working properly, that is unrivaled by many other engineering industries. Not only does the aerospace vehicle need to keep its passengers safe, but it must also be able to do so miles above the ground, and stay working perfectly even in severe weather conditions or massive G-force shifts. Data transfer on aviation vehicles must also be uninterrupted, with as low packet loss or delays as possible to keep crew and passengers safe. Thankfully Technical Cable has the know-how and resources to meet these tight standards, and manufacture cables that will be highly reliable and strong in any aerospace setting. This industry is another level in terms of technical and safety demands for maintaining safety and control for pilots, passengers and now astronauts as well but Technical Cable is here to match that need.

Custom Aerospace Wire & Cables Manufacturing – Competitive Lead Times

The realm of aerospace cable and wire is a very broad topic that includes hundreds of different kinds of cable, connectors, styles and harnesses. Data transfer is one type of application that is important for modern flight and radar systems, among many others for flight including battery power to keep systems running, thermocouple systems to monitor temperature, and telecommunications for communication with ground control. These are just some of the types of services that cables assemblies in this industry need to provide. Because of the extreme variance between aerial endeavors including commercial flight, military air force flight, and civilian space travel, just saying we do aerospace wire isn’t very specific and it would be difficult to list all of the various cables an aerospace company might need. However, you can rest assured that we have the ability and expertise for all of these specific aerospace industries and the cable assemblies, wire harnesses, and more that they need to be manufactured. We have an extensive inventory at all times of the most common connectors, conductor types, and materials so we can quickly prototype custom solutions and ensure that your custom cable order can be completed shortly. Come to us with your cable drawing or airplane specifications, and we’ll be able to give you an idea of how long the manufacturing run or prototype will take. Just send us your cable assembly specifications or drawing, or give us a call so we can provide an accurate quote. Our wire and cable solutions will be the perfect fit for your needs.

We provide cord and cable types including the following for aerial applications, and all sorts of other industries:

  • M12 Cable Assemblies
  • Overmolded Cable Assemblies
  • Battery Cable Assemblies
  • Coaxial Cable Assemblies
  • Triaxial Cable Assemblies
  • Flat Ribbon Cables
  • USB Type-C Cables
  • Engine Wire Harnesses
  • Cat6 Cable Assemblies
  • Sleeving and Shielding Cables
  • MIL-DTL-38999 Cables
  • D-Sub Cable Assemblies
  • ARINC 600 Cables

Whether we’re helping your company develop control systems for a remote military aircraft that will be flying thousands of miles away from the control center, or safety systems to protect civilians traveling to space for the first time, our drive for excellence and innovation will be your best asset. Aerospace is one of the most rapidly moving industries in the world and we are inspired by the creativity and ingenuity of these aerospace efforts. We’re proud to meet that level of innovation with our cable solutions for the aerospace companies we’ve worked with, and would love to continue that by providing cable assemblies for your aerospace products. We can make sure our cable solutions work perfectly with your bleeding edge technology, even if you need entirely new solutions that don’t play nice with standard off-the-shelf cable harnesses, or need unusual connectors that aren’t used for more basic products. 

Aerospace Cable Assembly Manufacturers

If you still have questions about our engineering quality for aerospace cables and need additional proof, Technical Cable completed and has continued to meet random audits for the ISO’s 9001:2015 Certification. This international certification held by the top companies across the world was completed so we could show our current clients and potential prospects that we are not just “good enough”, we’re the best. We are also now ITAR certified which is extremely important for many aviation manufacturers and adjacent companies and applications to work with us. Finally, we’re UL certified for cable assembly in the United States and Canada as well. You can view all of our certifications online. We invest in our staff and our equipment heavily to ensure that we can stay at the top of our game and meet the quality requirements for any possible client we may get. For instance, we also utilize a Schleuniger 36SP Crimp Center which has doubled our efficiency, with incredible automation that is both precise and speedy. We automate whatever we can for consistency and efficiency and this most recent acquisition has been an excellent investment for us so we can serve more clients across the country with faster and better production runs. Our lead times are extremely competitive and we ship not only throughout the United States, but internationally too. We also utilize automated work instruction systems developed in partnership with Scout Systems, which help us ensure that every step of cable assembly manufacturing is done correctly. Additionally, these work instruction systems have helped us improve efficiency by identifying problematic or difficult steps that we have improved since, and also help us with tracking so that in the event of a part failure, we can identify exactly what happened with every step of that part’s manufacturing and prevent it from happening again.

There’s no room for anything but the best here at Technical Cable Applications, and we would love to show that to you with our excellent bulk cable manufacturing solutions. We also carefully maintain our UL Certified Cable Assembly status by being ready to pass random audits at any time from them, ensuring that there is never a gap in safety and quality. No matter the massive quantity of cables you need, or the extreme specificity of requirements that your cable assemblies must meet, we can rise to the challenge and exceed it so you can reach new heights in more ways than one. Everyone working at our facility in Auburn of Washington state is obsessed with quality and innovation, and works together to make new ideas reality. If you represent an aerospace related company or corporation here in Washington, we would love to show you our facility and are always extra excited to work with companies here in the Pacific Northwest. Meanwhile if you’re elsewhere in the nation, our shipping partnerships mean that we can serve you excellently with our cable production runs as well.

We were also proud to announce recently in 2024 that we have forged partnerships with two excellent manufacturing facilities in Guadalajara, Mexico which have helped us grow our manufacturing capabilities greatly, and offer faster lead times and competitive pricing while maintaining and even increasing our quality control standards, as auditing of parts for cable assemblies happens both in their facilities and again at ours for every order. Partnering with these facilities for nearshore manufacturing and decreasing our reliance on overseas part sourcing has helped us reach new heights and offer even greater value to our customers. The lack of tariffs and faster ship times from Mexico are also highly beneficial and help us offer more competitive pricing to our customers, and fulfill orders more quickly.
