Customers needing urgent delivery of connector assemblies based around Souriau 8STA motorsport and Souriau 8D/D38999 Aluminium variants will be keen to learn that Lane Electronics has added more specialist equipment in its VAD assembly area as part of its ongoing investment to reduce delivery timescales while also increasing its overall production efficiency.
The new assembly system allows Lane Electronics to respond with a 24-hour turnaround to a customer’s specific assembly request while still maintaining very strict accordance with the approved and, in some cases, QPL qualified build process.
Lane Electronics is well known for its substantial stockholding of finished connectors to cover popular requirements for same day dispatch. But, given the nature of circular connectors and the almost infinite permutations that are possible, Lane also holds an impressive inventory of connector components and subassemblies. These are then immediately available for Lane to configure to order which massively increases the potential scope of its Souriau-Sunbank by Eaton offering across those ranges for customers in a hurry.
The final word goes to Lane’s Managing Director Simon Hammerton who states: “The significant investment in this state of the art assembly system has been made as a key part of our overall strategy moving forward into 2021. We are strengthening our position as a highly efficient, flexible and rapid solution provider as we enter an exciting new chapter for the UK and Europe – marketplaces where these qualities will be demanded by customers. The Souriau 8STA and 8D/38999 connector ranges are already very popular, for very good reasons, but our incredible flexibility in providing the wide range of insert gender, orientation and shell plating combinations from the one source, all with significantly reduced leadtimes is a clear indicator of our commitment to offer the very best in customer service and product availability.”
