CABLE HARNESSES

We create the right connections for your market success

The name EGSTON stands for the best connections worldwide. This is because we transport your pilot signals to the precise location at which they will be processed. Economically, reliably error-free, and protected from damage and environmental interference.

EGSTON is the leading expert in the field of highly complex cable harnesses. These are assemblies of electrical cables that transmit signals or operating currents. The cables are tied into a bundle using clamps, cable ties, cords, corrugated tubes or pipes, while integrating surrounding metal and plastic components or entire assemblies such as e.g. control panels.

OUR EXPERIENCE BRINGS YOU COST BENEFITS

Our core areas of expertise lie in the development and production of customized wiring solutions, including all mechanical, electromechanical and electronic components. One particular specialization in this area is the production of complex cable harnesses that are subject to particularly high requirements in terms of flexibility and resistance to chemical and mechanical stresses.

50 YEARS OF SUCCESSFUL OPERATIONS

EGSTON cable harnesses are typically used in a mix of technologies with pilot wires, power cables, electronics, electrics, compressed-air tubes, oil hoses, metal components (such as casings), and plastic and die-cast components, paired with a variety of insulation technologies.

WRAPPING WITH FABRIC TAPE

For very com­pact applications.
Advan­tages: water-per­me­able (no cor­ro­sion dam­age as the water is not sealed in), flex­i­ble pro­cess­ing, high avail­abil­i­ty of mate­ri­als, suit­able for even large diameters

BRAIDING WITH NYLON CORD

For high ther­mal and mechan­i­cal loads, suit­able for large num­ber of branch sections.
Advan­tages: water-per­me­able (no cor­ro­sion dam­age as the water is not sealed in), suit­able for large diam­e­ters, high avail­abil­i­ty of materials

SHEATHED CABLE

Our team of spe­cial­ists will col­lab­o­rate with all rel­e­vant com­pa­ny divi­sions to design cus­tom solu­tions for our cus­tomers. FMEA, sam­ple analy­ses, and process analy­ses are used as qual­i­ty con­trol tools.

PROCUREMENT

Pur­chased com­po­nents are test­ed using estab­lished pro­ce­dures. We work pri­mar­i­ly with cer­ti­fied sup­pli­ers who receive addi­tion­al qual­i­fi­ca­tions from us. Goods are test­ed on arrival to ensure the great­est pos­si­ble safe­ty at a rea­son­able cost.

PRODUCTION

We con­tin­u­al­ly improve the skills of our pro­duc­tion staff by with spe­cial train­ing and intro­duc­to­ry pro­grams. We secure our high-qual­i­ty stan­dards by imple­ment­ing inter­nal test­ing, run­ning checks, sta­tis­ti­cal process con­trol, and reg­u­lar audits.

FINAL INSPECTION

All EGSTON wiring sys­tems under­go a final elec­tri­cal inspec­tion. The func­tion­al­i­ty of any bought-in com­plex com­po­nents used in man­u­fac­tur­ing the prod­uct, such as dis­play instru­ments or indi­ca­tor lamps, is also test­ed. All tests are car­ried out in-house.
