Zentech Introduces Overmolded Cable Assemblies


Reading time ( words)

Zentech has added overmolded cable assembly manufacturing to its robust resume of capabilities. Overmolded cable assemblies will be manufactured at the Zentech – Fredericksburg location.

Leveraging over 35 years of success in support of the U.S. Navy, military primes and the commercial sector, the Zentech – Fredericksburg operation has a long legacy of supporting complex semi-rigid RF cable assemblies, point-to-point wiring and wire harness requirements.

Zentech – Fredericksburg is certified to IPC-A- 610 Class 3 as a QML mission critical trusted source, and is both IPC-WHMA-620 and J-STD 001 QML certified. In response to customers’ demands, the company recently added a YUH DAK YH-55 vertical injection mold system to accomplish the over-molding process.

Overmolded cable assemblies are ideal for harsh environments because of their impermeable properties. They are equipped to withstand shock, vibration, and continual flexing without the risk of compromise to the termination point.

In further support of this initiative, Zentech – Fredericksburg has also added additional milling capabilities to manufacture the mold cavities in-house.

Design support is available from the company’s talented engineering team.
