Repair, Overhaul and Modification

Cablescan has a dedicated facility experienced in the repair, overhaul and modification of harnesses, control panels and junction boxes, all products are surveyed on receipt and released with a warranty, for some customers the Company has set up and managed a facility within their own premises, this has been done at various worldwide locations. Cablescan has supported many UoR activities and has often provided 24 hour engineering and production support and same day courier services to ensure minimal programme disruption. All change documentation is managed within the configuration control system. Where drawings are not available the Company's engineers have the capability to reverse engineer products and if required can work with customers to suggest alternative materials where through obsolescence, large moq or lead time may impact a programme.

High Performance Sealed Harnesses

Cablescan manufacture cable harnesses which operate in harsh environments where full environmental protection is required. The Company can hand lay multi-core cables for low volume requirements and prototyping and are aligned to specialist cable manufactures for production runs.

Aerospace Open Wire Harnesses

Cablescan's AS9100-C driven process ensures that all incoming material is fully traceable to each assembly, each stage of the manufacturing process can be traced to the operator who carried out the operation. Wires can be laser marked using the Company's TWO spectrum wire laser markers. All production related documentation is controlled by a configuration control system, any customer driven change is given agreed embodiment points to ensure seamless integration of change.

Boxes and Control Panels

The Cablescan engineering personnel has experience from the Aerospace and Military vehicle sectors. The Company has established relationships with fabricators to enable them to provide rapid development of bespoke machined or fabricated boxes or panels through to volume production.  Cablescan's products are in use in the Marine, Commercial, Military and Aerospace sectors.

Aerospace and Military Test Benches

Since 1992 Cablescan has being involved with the manufacture of specialist test benches and associated harnesses.


The Cablescan engineering team have the capability to produce drawings from customer specifications. Reverse engineering a sample harness, where little or no information is available. The team can carry out on-site visits and have the experience and knowledge to suggest proven material to satisfy customer’s requirements. The company has built up an extensive database which cross references manufactures of equivalent products so as to minimise single source materials. The correct selection of material and supplier can enable significant cost reduction.

Laser Marking

Cablescan has a Capris 50-300 and NOVA 840 laser marking machines, this is a non aggressive method of identifying wires, it is widely used in the aerospace industry and offers a lightweight alternative to individual marker sleeves. The Company can also supply kitsets of laser marked wires for customers who wish to produce their cables in-house.


Overbraiding is used where extra protection is demanded, it is used extensively in the Areospace and UAV sectors where high temperature protection and weight constraints are a key requirement. Cablescan has the capability to overbraid with a variety of yarns such as Nomex or various types of wire.

Project Management

To ensure their reaction times, stock accuracy, operational efficiency and ability to provide customers with ‘real time’ job reporting, Cablescan operates the Factory master ERP system. This system controls all aspects of the business through a number of touch screens and barcode readers in each department providing a complete overview and performance levels of each business KPI.
