At New England Wire Technologies, our experienced technicians perform a diverse array of on-site testing in the lab as well as on the manufacturing floor. Equipped for mechanical, electrical, environmental testing, and material analysis, our lab tests conductors, insulation and jacket materials, cable components, and finished wire and cable according to MIL-Spec, federal, automotive, customer-specific, or even specialized custom cable test specifications—tensile and elongation, flexibility, torque, capacitance, high-pot, extreme hot and cold, etc. We are an ISO 9001:2015 certified manufacturing facility and have both UL and CSA certifications.
“Let’s face it, there is quite a lot of design and development that goes into our highly customized products before they are manufactured for the first time. Being able to offer a unique test protocol and the accompanying testing that is suited specifically for their cable’s performance parameters enables our customers to more quickly bring their product to market. Our goal is to reduce the concept-to-qualification timeline to better position our customers for success.” ~ Kelly MacKay, Director of Sales
Utilizing state-of-the-art equipment and instrumentation to ensure compliance and provide the highest quality products, we work closely with our customers to co-develop test methods for validation programs and first article production. We also work with customers to accurately determine cable sample components and materials for replication of existing cable or improvements to overall design.
Having substantial testing capabilities is a huge benefit to our customers as it allows us to test to real-world conditions to fully understand how the cable will react in various conditions and situations. We are able to accurately determine material failures and behaviors under specific environmental and mechanical conditions to help predict cable longevity and failure rates. Our extensive understanding of typical cable behaviors allows us to provide better and more intelligent design for a variety of applications.
“Providing excellent service to our customers’ is critical to our success. They expect quality products that meet their expectations and that are delivered within committed timeframes. Having advanced analytics and testing equipment enables our business to shorten development cycles, provide robust manufacturing processes, and confirm our products meet customer specification. Furthermore, these capabilities are fostering a more creative and innovative way of researching new technologies to address multiple market segment needs. We are well positioned with internal and external analytical and testing resources that will provide NEWT with the scientific data critical to meet our challenges today and in the future.” ~ Richard J. Larson, PhD, Director of Research and Development
