Epec can build to print most custom overmolded cable assemblies designed for today's sophisticated applications. Overmolded cable assemblies that can withstand harsh or demanding environments or have performance parameters that must be met for your industry, we have the engineering, design, and technology resources to take a cable assembly concept and transform it into a solution that can be manufactured to meet the demands of your application.
Epec's over molded cable assemblies are designed for long life and reliable performance in a variety of applications. We manufacture straight, right-angle, or customer specific molded back shells for different connectivity situations.
Overmolding connectors offers significant opportunities for product improvements with improved strain and flex relief. Manufactured properly, it can improve performance and reduce total cost. Overmolding benefits provide the user with interesting opportunities for strain relief and improved pull strength not available with conventional designs.
From extreme environmental stresses to the strains of abrasion and high-repetition movement, molded cable assemblies must be built to last. After choosing the right materials (PVC, rubber, santoprene, ABS, Polycarbonate (PC), Macromelt and many others) we identify the best production processes. Each stage of premolding, potting and overmolding is reviewed. We provide the right mix of waterproofing and abrasion resistance, meeting IP67 and IP68 standards if necessary. Soldering and crimp joints are examined, and premolding, overmolding or both can be incorporated to secure the connections and provide strain relief, durability and a long, useful life. We can design custom potting fixtures machined in specific shapes, adding coatings to the potting fixtures to ensure a good release and a clean finish.
Our customer focus allows us to provide high mix low volume all the way up to high volume applications with the right over molded cable solutions. Our tooling and lead times are reasonable as we understand that there are not large budgets for cable tooling in the product development process.
