Pomona, CA.-April 2009: ISC Engineering has engaged in a variety of OEM projects in the Renewable Energy, Lighting and Solar Energy industries with custom Over-molded Solutions. Common to these environments are the requirements for outdoor rated connector and cable assembly solutions, incorporating IP66 and IP67 performance. In addition new regulatory requirements for F1 rated materials combined with the rugged outdoor environments, creates new challenges in overmold technology. PV arrays in the Solar require a variety of interconnect solutions between panels, inverters and control systems. Overmolding can provide a cost effective and reliable solution connector and cable terminations. In addition, many GREEN products are innovative in intelligent cable assembly solutions, incorporating embedded circuitry into the interconnect systems.
ISC has developed a proven track record to assist companies in the development of leading edge solutions to OEM challenges in the interconnect and custom cable assembly industry.
With over 100 years of combined management experience, dating back to the late 70s, ISC’s in depth experience in the molded cable assembly industry is probably second to none. They are prepared to provide standard and custom designs. Flexibility and rapid response make their service unique.
According to Steve Burk, co-founder and president of ISC, The most common problem facing the custom overmold community is tying together the front end of a new product design to the back end production. So often, the assembly works, the mold is correct and the part looks ok, but the part does not work. ISC has addressed this issue by providing vertically integrated design and development processes, from concept through initial production stages, providing turnkey tooling and product designs that work. This coupled with Outsource assistance to vertically integrate, customers can get the best of both worlds. Quality product development and assistance to develop manufacturing capabilities wherever it is they need to be.
Mr. Burk served as President of ISC Engineering, and has been involved in the interconnect and cable assembly industry since 1971. He has written numerous articles on cable assembly and molded interconnect products and is regarded as an expert in the area of molded cable assembly technology.
