Success Story in the Plastic Injection Molding Industry

Talk is cheap, but TURCK's success is built on real achievements, like helping Airline create custom connectivity solutions for their customer in the plastic injection molding sector. One of Airline's long-standing customers was meeting their Airline Application Engineer, Peter Kornse, when he noticed some of their wiring had flying leads, meaning the wire was not permanently attached to a device or equipment. 

Upon discovering this wiring issue, Peter learned about the customer's struggle to find a suitable solution for the exposed wires. Taking the initiative, he delved into resolving the matter, recognizing the potential quality risks flying leads could introduce to their systems. Initially, exploring standard cables to address their requirements proved fruitless, as their specifications or deliverability didn’t meet the customer’s needs. 

Turning to TURCK for a tailored cable became the best solution. After outlining the customer's essentials, TURCK promptly delivered detailed design drawings within a few days.
