AWC Specializes in Custom Cable

In many businesses, circumstances arise that call for unique wire and cable specifications. These are the occasions when off-the-shelf products just won't do the job.

Custom cables are the perfect solution since they alleviate the challenges associated with uncommon wire and cable requirements.

A custom cable is cable tailored to meet specific requirements not otherwise available for standard wire or cable. With custom cable design, a vast number of possible wire and cable configurations exist, so you can create a product that works for you. Custom cable design presents solutions for numerous industries such as aerospace, medical, chemical and others. Custom cables are engineered for tough environmental demands and can be used for a range of applications. They are even manufactured to meet Mil-Spec, UL, CSA, or CE standards.

Allied Wire and Cable recognizes that certain product requirements necessitate custom cables. That is why custom cable designs and cable construction have become our specialty. We possess years of experience building custom-made cables with quick turnaround on most constructions and with minimum manufacturing runs as little as 100 ft. Our experienced engineering staff will work with you to provide the most efficient cost-effective solution for your custom cable problem. In addition, we provide value-added custom cable services such as custom color codes, jacket coloring and printing (company name and part #), and specific length spool sizes.

Our advanced design services supply cables for specific criteria by identifying precise product combinations. As a buyer, you may select insulation such as PVC, PTFE, thermoplastic rubber (TPR), silicone, polyethylene, and polyurethane among others, as well as choose from a myriad of jacketing options. Constructions include multi conductor, pairs, triads or quads and composite constructions contain any number of AWG sizes and configurations. You can even control the conductor material used in your cable by selecting from our stock of bare copper, tinned copper, silver plated copper, and nickel. What kind of shield do you need? Wide collections of these are offered as well from Mylar foil to various braid constructions. Furthermore, you can choose from a variety of colors, quantities, temperature ranges, flexibilities, and voltages. Allied's knowledgeable staff can help guide you through the best alternatives to ensure maximized cable performance.

For added efficiently, all custom cables are offered in lengths particular to your layout necessities. Prototype Runs of custom cable with small minimum length requirements are even available to accommodate every scenario.

Allied Wire and Cable can manufacture some designs from conception to finish in as little as one week.

December Follow-up: AWC Raised over $8,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation

Allied Wire and Cable would like to extend warm gratitude to all who participated in our Make-A-Wish fundraiser, which ran the week of December 18th through the 22nd. Every wire or cable purchase made during the week contributed to a valuable fund.

Due to the overwhelming generosity of our customers, we raised over $8,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The donation will grant the wish of a child with a life-threatening medical condition and provide priceless memories for him/her.

The members of the Pennsylvania warehouse, office and sales departments presented Karen Traten of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Philadelphia and Southeastern Pennsylvania a check for $8,006.30. Please look below the article for a picture of the presentation.

For over six years, Allied Wire and Cable has supported the Foundation and will continue to do so in the future. Thank you for your kindness and support of Make-A-Wish and for sharing the joy of the holidays with a child in need.
