Heyco Cable and Hose Management products now available from JET PRESS
When someone you respect chooses to work with you it feels pretty good, so we were very pleased to be selected as a Heyco distributor end of 2018.
Heyco, the US based manufacturer of cable and hose management products started the search for an additional UK and Europe distributor in 2017. They have been building a reputation for quality in the US since the 1920s and know the value of distributors who provide a completely reliable service. They were confident that adding JET PRESS to their roster will help maintain their excellent reputation.
For the most popular core products we offer a rapid turnaround ordering service and all the products in the HEYCO catalogue are available through us.
Extra R&D resources
We have our own in-house engineering resources to support your project and access to the significant design, engineering and prototyping resources of the Heyco plant in New Jersey as well. In fact we are already working with Heyco on a series of bespoke parts destined for use in a complex electronic component for a luxury car manufacturer.
Why cable management matters
Of course engineers understand the value of good cable management; a single failure in an electrical, data or signalling cable can lead to failure of the device or of an entire system. But it is important to strike the right balance by specifying something that has all the right performance criteria without adding unnecessary weight, cost or introducing manufacturing issues. Stocking the Heyco range allows us to offer you far more options.
Heyco specialise in products for automotive and electrical appliances. All vehicles move about so there is always a requirement for varying levels of strain relief. However, domestic appliances vary considerably. A fridge freezer gets moved maybe twice a year; by comparison a toaster is moved around all the time. The people at a well-known electrical goods brand ̶ famous for their toasters ̶ are reputed to whirl them around their head to test the cable fixture! And yes, they use Heyco components.
Benefits beyond the finished product
The huge experience Heyco has of working closely with customers mean they understand manufacturing demands. For instance, their bushings only require finger pressure to install. This means operatives can work swiftly with less chance they will develop Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). This in turn avoids disruption and costs for the manufacturer.
Their bushings also lock in fractional increments. This means they fit snugly into the aperture and there is a small amount of tolerance to the panel thickness. Though of course, they are all available in a wide range of sizes.
