Upgrades German Manufacturing Infrastructure
W. L. Gore & Associates has recently upgraded its site manufacturing infrastructure in Pleinfeld, Germany, significantly reducing product delivery time to OEMs and end users.
GORE Aerospace High-Speed Data Cables for commercial and military aircraft applications are now available with short lead times. Gore and Air Cost Control, now an authorised distributor, can ship samples of Gore’s pre-qualified solutions within two business days. As a result, OEMs can validate and support low-rate production using Gore’s standard products in their specific applications with lower technical and business risks to their programmes.
Gore offers a wide variety of high-speed copper and fibre-optic solutions that support the latest open-source architectures and standardised protocols, such as USB, HDMI, Ethernet, Fibre Optics Simplex and more. They deliver life-long performance in small, lightweight, flexible and routable designs. These cables have undergone substantial qualification testing to ensure they meet stringent specifications of current industry standards and customer requirements.
For Ethernet Cat6a protocol, Gore’s cables exceed requirements and are approved to SAE AS6070 standards and on the Qualified Products List.
“We’re now cooperating with one of the leading distributors for wires, cables, connectors and electrical components in the commercial and military aircraft industries,” commented Gore EMEA Sales Channel Manager, Hermann Schörner. “Air Cost Control’s capabilities to sell technical solutions and offer improved product performance is one of their main strengths. We’re very pleased to have them as one of our authorised distribution partners in Europe.”
