To produce Amphenol's MIL-DTL-38999 Series I, II and III connectors in greater quantities, PEI-Genesis has expanded production capability at its 65,000ft2 European assembly facility in Southampton.

Some of the processes involved in assembling these connectors differ from those required for most other connector types, so PEI-Genesis decided to build two new assembly lines dedicated to producing fully qualified MIL-DTL-38999 connectors and related products, all of which are offered with PEI's standard 48-hour assembly service.

Following the advice given by connector manufacturer Amphenol, PEI-Genesis invested in several new items of equipment, including two high-resolution inkjet marking machines, two customised mechanical flow ovens for print curing and two staking machines for the mechanical retention of the MIL-DTL-38999 connector inserts.

The investment has increased the Southampton facility's annual MIL-DTL-38999 capacity from around 60,000 connectors to more than 200,000.

All assembly work is carried out under the PEI-Genesis's ISO 9001:2000 quality system, meaning every connector undergoes MIL-DTL-38999 Group A testing to ensure 100 per cent mateability.

The new assembly lines will also be used for producing derivative products such as the Amphe-Lite range of composite circular connectors and the Amphe-EX series of ATEX-approved hazardous-area connectors.
