Posted by Stephanie Weaver on Thu, Mar 08, 2018 @ 12:25 PM

Zentech Fredericksburg (formerly Colonial Assembly and Design) has added over-molded cable assemblies manufacturing to its robust resume of capabilities. Leveraging over thirty-five years of success in support of the U.S. Navy, military primes and the commercial sector, the Zentech - Fredericksburg operation has a long legacy of supporting complex semi-rigid RF cable assemblies, point-to-point wiring and wire harness requirements.

In response to our customer’s demands, Zentech Fredericksburg has added a YUH DAK YH-55 vertical injection mold system to accomplish the over-molding process.

Overmolded cable assemblies are ideal for harsh environments because of their impermeable properties. They are equipped to withstand shock, vibration, and continual flexing without the risk of compromise to the termination point. Over-molding is also a potential cost savings alternative to potting since it is an automated process.

Zentech Fredericksburg over-mold capabilities feature:

  • Rapid prototyping
  • Mold, cable and wire harness design support
  • Over-molded with smoke and fire resistant materials
  • 20 different types of plastics and resins available, capable to withstand temperatures up to 340 degrees
  • In house mold fabrication with a 2 week lead time
  • Aluminum or steel molds
  • Modular backshells
