Best-cost plugs and sockets – and in small batches
Plugs and sockets usually count as mass-produced articles. Development will not lead to any significant added value, so purchasers always look for the lowest price available. We at HORA eTec are in a position to provide best-cost options for male and female connectors with the same contacts in a one-stop shop thanks to an Indo-German production partnership with Shiv-Om Brass Industries.
Apart from that, we are in a position to supply batch sizes that would be unthinkable from European manufacturing, allowing us to manufacture smaller batch sizes in partnership with our Indian colleagues.
Rotary-plate manufacturing ensuring fast tooling times for plugs and sockets
Specialised rotary plates play an essential role in manufacturing plugs and sockets in this manufacturing process. Like the familiar Variomatic principle in Europe with its nine or eleven stations, HORA eTec in India manufactures with three, five or more stations on one rotary plate. This keeps machine-hour rates low while providing small batches. Fast tooling in particular is a major advantage in this process design.
All our products are naturally subjected to testing and quality standards at European level. We also supply the first plugs “unleaded.” Our company also develops solutions to specification for parts ranges.
