Managing The Development Of Your Overmolded Cable

When designing a custom overmolded cable, there are several critical design details that engineers must consider such as the overmold material, physical shape, and the type of bulk cable to be used.

Design changes during development can create significant delays and cause a direct impact on program schedules, especially if hard tooling or custom bulk wire is involved.

Understanding how the cables are produced and the available options to implement design updates can be the difference between completing your project on schedule or a cancelled program.
