HTL forayed into the Aerospace & Defence sector as a natural extension of its expertise in fiber optics. It has invested in people, processes and infrastructure to build a world-class production facility for manufacturing wiring harnesses along with its fiber optics.
The core competencies at HTL are manufacturing Optical Fiber Cable as per Aerospace and Defence standards, build to print wire harnesses (data, audio, power cables) and testing of wire harness (continuity tests, megger tests, isolation testing, etc).
HTL is a one-stop shop for wire harnesses -- from design to qualification and everything in between. We are proud to have a dedicated space for the Aerospace and Defence sector, which has the potential to scale up exponentially in a relatively short duration. The 10,000-sqft facility is AS9100 certified and more certifications are planned in the near future. Our current infrastructure is expansive, and comprises of a variety of tools for splicing and crimping, soldering workstations, power, hand and pneumatic-operated tools, sleeve printers, cable printers, plotter for form board drawings, wire harness potting facilities, wire braiding, automatic wiring analysers, etc. All our operators are trained and certified for IPC-J-STD-001, IPC WHMA 610A and IPC WHMA 620A.
HTL has built its wire harness manufacturing facility with the most advanced equipment, tools and infrastructure. The facility is equipped with braiding machines from Wardwell, assorted tools for stripping and crimping from DMC corporation, laser wire marking from Laselac, thermal printers from TE connectivity, plotters from HP and a wire harness tester from DIT-MCO.
The proprietary Smart Manufacturing System (SMS) toolset enables us to integrate all aspects of Electrical Wiring Interconnect Systems (EWIS) for both commercial and military aircraft. SMS enables us to offer quality products by maintaining a high standard of engineering. SMS is a unique toolset to adopt any kind of EWIS system manufacturing. It provides strong traceability on wire harness manufacturing configuration. The SMS system is tailored by industry experts with decades of experience across various organisations in the aerospace industry.
HTL believes in seamless operational transactions between multiple disciplines encompassing supply chain, quality, manufacturing, production planning, delivery, invoices, customer support and satisfaction surveys. The company is in the phase of implementing a full-fledged ERP on SAP Hana platform to achieve operational efficiencies.
