A large global manufacturer of industrial robots has been experiencing robust growth and demand for its products. Its legacy interconnect supply base was unable to provide the capacity, ramp-up speed, and production volume that the manufacturer required to meet its increasing demand. They turned to NAI to produce a variety of rugged cable assemblies and harnesses to meet their demanding deadlines.
NAI’s global footprint provides a definite advantage for interconnect customers looking for extra insurance and to mitigate risk, so they can remain focused on providing continuity of supply to their customers. Read about how NAI helped one customer by building dual capacity in a different global location to help that customer maintain its product deliveries during the pandemic.

A mining control equipment manufacturer could not build harnesses and assemble enclosures internally as well as an outside interconnect supplier with experience in making rugged assemblies for hazardous environments. They decided to outsource to NAI to achieve better quality, reduce lead times and obtain other benefits. Most importantly, this supply arrangement allowed the customer to focus on their core business, and use NAI’s expertise in design and manufacturing, as well as leverage their global procurement resources, to produce the harnesses and box builds needed.
