The problem

The customer was experiencing a sourcing and management nightmare with multiple suppliers. Source tubing from one, source cable from another, source connectors from a third. And that's before they had to assemble it all in-house. The customer knew that there had to be a better way.

Our solution

Global Interconnect introduced a proprietary extrusion technique that eliminated the need for separate tubing, cable and solvent bond suppliers. In addition, Global Interconnect helped reduce high costs and long lead times for connectors, all while providing all necessary drawings, documentation and reporting.

The result

After achieving a 50% cost reduction, the assembly is currently in production through a single source.

Products Key to this Case Study

Extrusion

We manufacture custom assemblies that connect medical devices or industrial consoles to surgical handpieces or measurement devices. Reusable or disposable, these include custom electrical cable, tubing, or a combination of both using thermoplastic and thermoset materials.

ALL EXTRUSION PRODUCTS

Assembly

We manufacture medical and industrial electromechanical assemblies requiring labor intensive or automated assembly processes, testing, and documentation in a controlled, ISO approved facility.
