Spanning across 22 countries with more than 59 facilities, Jabil, Inc. has been serving industries ranging from consumer products to aerospace and defense. Founded in 1966, Jabil is an electronics solutions company providing comprehensive electronics for design, manufacturing and product management services.

Jabil entered the automotive market working with wires and cables anywhere from 18 -10 AWG. Beginning with lower volume projects, they chose to hand crimp their wires using crimping pliers. This resulted in throughput issues and exposed potential quality issues they were not comfortable accepting.

Jabil sought out Schleuniger, “Switching from hand operations to machinery made sense financially and from a quality risk avoidance standpoint; our operation becoming efficient and effective. We had witnessed how quickly Schleuniger got other companies up and running, some even in just 3 months. Schleuniger had a proven track record of being able to get even new and inexperienced customers up and running quickly,” Project Proposal Manager, Chris Hempsall stated.

With the UniCrimp 200 and the UniStrip 2300, Jabil employees no longer have to measure, cut, and strip wires by hand; it is done automatically, programmed through the user-friendly display. Producing crimped wires 10 times faster than before Schleuniger arrived, Jabil no longer has concern for productivity and quality.

“Schleuniger employees truly get the credit for our improved quality and efficiency,” Hempsall further stated. “The training they provided exceeded our expectations. We are beyond impressed. They quickly got us up and running and most importantly comfortable with technology we had little prior experience with.”
