Ordering the right connectors for a job from the cheapest supplier in a hurry? That can be expensive. Apart from the fact that not all connectors are the same, but differ considerably in transmission properties, material, dimensions, quality, etc., purchasing conditions based on order quantities, minimum order quantities (MOQ), product availability, lead times and customer-specific delivery times and delivery agreements also play an important role.
But buyers are often not even aware of the biggest cost factor: the effort required to assemble the various parts and components needed to produce the connector. In addition to the connector itself, these can be the cable gland, connector bonnet, connector inserts, sockets and inserts, add-on housings, etc.
Euroconnectors takes care of this assembly of the required parts for the customers, the so-called kitting. Florian Adams, Division Manager Euroconnectors (pictured) explains: "We professionally assemble the various parts and components needed to manufacture a product in a kit and label them according to customer requirements. And we do this even for very small quantities, for example for maintenance and servicing."
At Euroconnectors the customer receives his products with the label he wants - for example already labelled with his own article numbers. This has considerable advantages for the customer, because it saves him costs in goods receipt, because he only has to scan his article number and can put it directly into storage without having to sort it beforehand.
Florian Adams: "As an authorised distributor and in combination with Lacon Electronic GmbH, one of the top 20 EMS in Germany, we have technically skilled personnel who are not only trained on the products, but also can offer comprehensive technical support and advice. For the customer - and not for the manufacturer. We speak the language of the user for over 30 years and know what the customer needs."
Thanks to large stocks, individual components are also available in small quantities at Euroconnectors, as are all the necessary crimping tools. "In addition to sales, consulting and service, we also offer extensive manufacturing capacities through our parent company Lacon," says Florian Adams, "for example when it comes to crimping, soldering, ultrasonic welding or more advanced processing services such as cable assembly. Few other distributors can offer such a unique combination."
