With flexible modern CNC manufacturing equipment, any tooling improvements and innovations that are brought to market can be easily integrated. Avoiding a major retrofit that requires huge capital expenditures and tearing up facilities to install new equipment can save manufacturers large amounts of money and improve their bottom line.
Businesses, whether in order fulfillment or manufacturing, see the need to resolve certain pain points; the trigger is usually when a company sees the costs of delivery rising, increased labor costs, and a need to control inventory.
Over the decades flat cable has been a favorite in high end computing, military and aerospace, robotics and motion control devices. Its advantages include superior flexibility, electronic noise abatement, and packaging efficiency. Its limiting factor over this time has been the need for unique termination techniques-prepping for connectors has largely required hand work.
