With a custom cable, the possible configurations are endless, and the end result is a cable that meets or exceeds your expectations. At Lapp Tannehill, we understand that not every market or application requires the same products and services. Each industry and company has its own requirements that are dictated by its finished goods. When creating a custom cable, the entire manufacturing process is monitored - from conductor, insulation, jacketing, to delivery. This will better assist you in assuring superior construction, premium materials, advanced manufacturing, and world-class quality control.
There is a common misconception that a custom cable costs more money than a standard off the shelf cable, however, you need to consider that a custom cable will meet all the requirements that you want, and in the long run, can actually save you money. Below are just some of the many advantages you may consider when designing a custom cable.
