Wire Lead Manufacturing
Not only does Galaxy support its customers’ wire harness and cable assembly needs, Galaxy has state of the art equipment to manufacture wire leads. Wire leads are simply wire that has been cut to a specified length with the ends finished in a number of different ways. The ends of the wire can be stripped, tinned or terminated with connector pins, sockets, ring terminals, or quick disconnect terminals. Wire lead manufacturing can be very attractive to companies that would rather focus their time manufacturing a finished product rather than the sub-assemblies. Many companies are changing their old manufacturing techniques and upgrading them with computerized alternatives. Galaxy has low minimum order requirements and offers engineering design services to help meet many wire lead product needs.
The Galaxy Differentiator for Wire Lead Manufacturing
The need for wire leads is very common. Utilizing Galaxy to manufacture wire leads can provide cost savings in many ways. First, Galaxy is a perfect fit for wire lead manufacturing due to our ability to supply bulk wire. There wouldn’t be a need to purchase wire from another source and send it to Galaxy – Galaxy can procure the wire and then manufacture the wire leads as required. This streamlined process saves valuable time and money. Second, Galaxy utilizes equipment from industry leaders to ensure the highest quality wire leads are manufactured. Having Galaxy manufacture terminated wire leads eliminates the need to purchase either hand tools or automated applicator tooling which can be very costly. Galaxy utilizes an Alpha 530 from Komax, so Galaxy can manufacture wire leads in fraction of the time it would take to produce them manually with either hand tools or crimping applicators. Using equipment like the Komax Alpha 530 allows Galaxy to automate the wire lead process and consistently manufacture high quality wire leads. Whether the leads need to be terminated, stripped or tinned, the use of this automated equipment is a distinct competitive advantage. Contact Galaxy and provide the necessary specifications and required quantities to see the cost saving benefits of this wire lead manufacturing service.
