Design for Manufacturability & Testing

Engineering Components and Tools:

El-Com’s engineers have over 30 years of mechanical design experience, including new product development, design for manufacturing, and tooling design. SolidWorks, 3D CAD design software, is our primary mechanical design tool. It helps us create:

  • Custom sheet metal design
  • Weldment design
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Design for manufacturing
  • Design Verification

Engineering Cables:

El-Com has invested in CablEquity, software which combines CAD functionality and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) for cables and harnesses.

Testing & Verification–Cables:

Some cable assemblies require special mechanical stress cycling using specialized test fixtures to prove the validity of a new design and verification of workmanship. These tests also include 100% visual and program controlled electrical testing.
