On-site Copper Extrusion
The Manchester, NH facility is one of a handful of cable manufacturing facilities in the U.S. that performs on-site drawing of copper. When drawing copper, Hitachi Cable starts with 13 AWG solid copper conductor on custom built deploying devices, called Stems. The copper is pulled into the drawing mills where it is reduced to the appropriate size, conditioned in what is called the annealing process, then insulated with the appropriate insulation. Drawing our own copper allows us to better control the performance of the primary conductors and maximize overall cable performance.
Hitachi’s Manufacturing Advantage
Hitachi Cable America (Hitachi Cable) never stops innovating. Whether it’s installing the very latest in cable twist technology, or designing and building custom equipment for a one-of-a-kind cable, Hitachi Cable has the resources to maintain a technological edge over the competition. Our in-house staff of electrical engineers keep the pipeline full with new cable designs. With new equipment frequently being installed, we can confidently satisfy increasing customer demand.
The Advantage of Hitachi’s Cable Packaging
When it comes to the performance of our products, Hitachi doesn’t just evaluate the cable, we also evaluate the package from which it is dispensed. Hitachi’s easy-payout boxes for Category 5e and Category 6 cables consistently receive positive reviews from distributors and installers. Designed with direct input from users, our boxes feature dual reinforced handles, vibrant, easy-to-read graphics and have proven to be as durable as the cable they contain. The boxes also have a product specific conduit fill chart printed right on the back of the box. When it comes to reels, we only use the best sanded wooden reels and durable thick-gauge plastic reels. When transporting large reels, we go to great lengths to ensure our product arrives safely. We don’t cut corners when it comes to packaging and it shows.
