A common misconception of custom cables is that they are expensive. However, they are often extremely affordable and can help save money in a number of ways:
1. Ordering custom cables minimize replacement costs.
The off-the-shelf cable may not have the longevity required for applications in rigorous environments. Custom cables can be designed to withstand environmental challenges and with performance, parameters to ensure longer life. Custom cables can help avoid costly downtime caused by stock cable failures, limit replacement cable purchases, and save on labor required for repairs or new installations.
2. Rather than buying multiple cables, a single composite cable can be used for easier installation.
Composite cables save time, space, and money. With composite cables, different gauge sizes and constructions can be combined under one jacket, providing multiple services from just one cable.
3. Designing a custom cable can help take advantage of lower minimums and have a faster turnaround time.
If a project does not require a lot of cables, factory minimums can be far out of reach. Allied Wire Cable has one of the lowest order minimums in the industry-- just 100 feet for most builds. Our short lead times can save production time that would otherwise be wasted on waiting on cable deliveries.
4. Custom cables ensure that all needed attributes are present, without paying for costly and unnecessary extras.
Not only do custom cables guarantee any required specifications, but they can exclude any attributes that make similar cables expensive. Each application is unique, and may not need attributes included in standard cables. With custom cable, the construction is tailored to suit particular needs, so there’s never a need to worry about paying for unnecessary materials.
Custom cables from Allied Wire and Cable are guaranteed to work more efficiently and last longer than off-the-shelf options for most applications. With Allied Wire and Cables short lead times and low minimums, time and money can be saved on replacement parts and labor, making them a practical option even for small runs.
