YY Cable

YY Cable is a interconnecting cable used in signal and control equipment. It is generally used for measuring, control or regulation. It is commonly used in the building and construction industry as well as rail and transport networks.

A YY Cable works well in most environments and works well in situations with light mechanical stress and can be used outside when protected and indoors in dry and moist conditions.

The YY Cable comes with a protective grey sheath.

Precision Machining

Precision Machining also referred to as Computer Numerical Control (CNC) is a manufacturing machine that has pre-programmed CAD/CAM commands encoded on a storage medium, it is an efficient way of producing thousands of machine tools continuously in one day as opposed to the machines being manually controlled by levers or hand wheels.

Denis Ferranti has over 50 year’s experience of high precision CNC machining & precision engineering in many demanding industry sectors.

They have specialised experience in areas of defence, petrochemical, aerospace & engine componentry.  Their highly trained workforces are able to offer solutions for both new components and ‘make to print’ precision machining for existing components.

Denis Ferranti are capable of producing a broad range of high tolerance machined components such as:

Turning:  6mm - 550mm diameter
Horizontal Milling:  800mm x 800 work piece
Vertical Machining:  1500mm x 800mm work piece

Their in house manufacturing team are also able to assist in:
•    Design new components & assemblies. We utilise Solid Edge; Femap Express & KISSsoft   software.
•    Produce Rapid Prototypes
•    Reverse Engineer existing items
•    Value Engineer existing items

Outsourced Assembly & Test

Denis Ferranti subcontract assembly & Test have over 50 years experience in assembly & test services to world wide industries covering electronic, electromechanical, engineering and mechanical products.

Denis Ferranti can accommodate a ‘Product Build’ services for all types of industries that choose to focus their resources on other areas such as product design, specifications and marketing. They have a highly trained specialised work force that can accommodate their clients requirements every step of the way and ensure that they are getting good value for money.

They will methodically cover and agree all areas of the assembly & test of their “make to print” product including:

•    Control of drawing packages
•    Material sourcing and inspection procedures
•    Comprehensive documentation of all procedures
•    Design, production and maintenance of specialized fixtures and testing equipment
•    Quality and traceability procedures
•    Product logistics and service levels
•    Warranty protocols
•    Use of  robotic / automated assembly equipment
•    Training & Environmental issues

Their team can also assist clients with ‘design for manufacture’ input at the early stages and throughout the product life.

They have buying offices in Europe and the Far East and global strategic relationships with key supplies.  All supply partners are subject to thorough regular audits and thorough qualification checks.

PTH assembly solutions and SMT PCB assembly

SMT PCB Assembly

SMT (Surface Mount Technology) assembly cards are populated on modern automated lines with the capacity to place components from 0402 to 52 mm sq.

PTH PCB Assembly

PTH (Plated Through Hole) PCB Assembly cards are populated by hand or automatically for axial, radial & integrated circuit components. Cards are wave soldered or combined with reflow or hand soldering.

Panel sizes up to 500mm x 250mm can be accommodated.

Full ATE facilities include AOI, optical, X-Ray inspection, flying probe & pin bed testing. Tailored functionality testing can also be undertaken.

Tin Lead (SnPb) and "lead free" soldering are available.

ROHS Compliant systems.

One off prototyping is not a problem.

Denis Ferranti Electronics is able to offer "Box Build Assembly" services through to complete manufacture for electronic and electromechanical products for all their electronic clients.
