Look around and nearly any place you encounter will have specialized connectors, cables and interconnection systems, many of which weSpecialized Connectors Oct. Blog 2 manufacture at Connectronics. Why are they so common? Connectors, cables, and interconnection systems are used in just about every industry and the wide range of applications within each. Connectors, cable assemblies and interconnection systems are used on land, underwater, in the sky, and beyond to outer space.

Take a look at some of the examples we’ve pulled from the many places you can find them:

On land: Connectronics products are components of heavy vehicle simulators (HVS), complex cable systems and instrumentation used in a variety of industries, including science-related industries such as: research sciences, pharmaceutical and biotech. Components and connectors can be found in mass spectrometers, which measure and weigh molecules, and the pharmaceutical industry. This industry uses our connectors in quality control (QC) systems to ensure the purity of pharmaceutical products. More examples of the wide range of applications for Connectronics products also include: titanium smelting plants, nuclear reactor systems in the energy sector, and stage lighting for the entertainment industry.

In water: To measure and monitor water quality, biologists and municipalities all over the world use Yellow Spring Instruments, which include Connectronics components. Our underwater cables and connectors are used for offshore oil exploration too!

Up above: Connectronics manufactures high voltage connectors and avionics for the commercial and military aviation industries. You’ll also find our products in radar systems used on private jets and other aircrafts. The aerospace industry also utilizes our systems for airport traffic control and communication. Our connectors and cable assemblies are also in space. We build cable assemblies for xenon-ion propulsion thrusters that are onboard space-bound satellites, abiding by special requirements for aerospace cable assemblies. Systems must be able to operate in extreme temperatures. They must also offer reliability throughout the lifespan of a satellite mission.

This month, we will be adding a new molding machine for silicone processing to our operations at Connectronics. Once in place and ready to run, the machine will expand our capabilities to provide specialized electronic connectors for the industries we serve. The list consists of: aerospace, defense, entertainment, medical, energy industries and more. The new molding machine will give us high-power production capabilities on site and enable us to keep up with the increasing demand for rubber insulators and other molded parts for our customers.

Our new molding machine is manufactured by ARBURG, a German manufacturer of machinery and technology for plastics processing. ARBURG says their molding machines feature “innovative, cost effective high-end injection molding technology […] to help you reduce unit costs and produce parts conveniently and flexibly […] with an extremely high level of precision.” At Connectronics, we’re looking forward to the cost and time-saving features our new molding machine will offer us. Features include:

• High-precision injection and holding New Mold Machine Imagepressure performance
• Energy efficiency
• Cycle-time reduction
• Flexibility through its pivoting clamping unit, and
• Ease-of-operation.

In the end, these features will also provide value and high-quality end results to our customers.

Our investment in this new molding machine is just the latest example of our mission to provide value to our customers. It also reflects our company’s commitment and continuous improvement philosophy. At Connectronics, we are dedicated to providing innovative designs and solutions for customers from all industries who are looking for electronic connectors and interconnection systems for a variety of applications. If you have any questions about our new molding machine, or about our capabilities, please reach out to us through email or call us at 800-965-0020.
