Off the Shelf Cables Can’t Compete with Custom Cable Assemblies Webinar

There are numerous scenarios when an ordinary off the shelf cable will work just fine for the desired application. Typically, off the shelf cables are designed and manufactured in common configurations, lengths, colors, connector styles, etc., that cover a plethora of customers’ needs. For example, there are thousands of different black 3 foot USB cables that are readily available and in stock through various online and brick and mortar retailers.

But what if you knew that you needed 10,000 black 3 foot USB cables? Cheaper options may exist for an order quantity of this size. Or what if you needed a black 3 foot USB with additional shielding that can withstand EMI emissions? Or instead of a black cable, you needed a navy blue overmold that matches your company’s branding and logo?

Off the Shelf Cables Can’t Compete with Custom Cable Assemblies

In these scenarios there is a high probability you will save time and money and get added functionality by tooling a custom cable with a full-service cable supplier like Epec Engineered Technologies.

Join us for this webinar as we discuss how off the shelf cables simply can’t compete with custom cable assemblies.
