Convert Ltd, the UK’s leading manufacturer of cable looms and harnesses, is showcasing its capabilities at the Southern Manufacturing and Electronics Show 2019 after recently investing in a new Artos CR11 automatic crimping wire processor.
The Kent-based company purchased the machine, which has double its capacity, to support a project it is working on with one of the world’s leading sports car manufacturers.
Convert specialises in the automotive, public transport and scientific/medical sectors, manufacturing cable harnesses for car head and rear lights, passenger gates at railway stations and a range of scientific equipment.
Convert boasts top industry names amongst its customers such as Wipac, Bibby Scientific Ltd, GKN Hybrid Power, Cubic Transportation and OEM Automatic Ltd, as well as leading luxury and sports car manufacturers.
Dave Lord, Convert’s Managing Director, said: “The Southern Manufacturing Show is the only engineering and electronic show we attend. It ticks all our boxes. It’s well organized with good networking opportunities, plus we get to catch up with existing clients and meet potential new customers. We’re hoping our increased capacity, thanks to our new Artos machine, will generate a real buzz at the show!”
Engineered to handle high and low volume runs and a wide range of wire types, the Artos CR11 is up to 18 per cent faster than previous models, feeding wires at 5 metres a second.
