Richco, Inc. Intros UMB Flexible Cable Clamp
By Jai C.S., TMCnet Contributor
Richco, Inc., a global manufacturer of plastic components has launched its new flexible cable clamp, the UMB.
The UMB is a flexible, serrated rubber strap that provides a tight grip to cables. The UMB provides strong retention for cable bundles up to .79" (20mm) in diameter. Its large, ribbed base gives the cables extra surface area which provides some strain relief. The UMB is RoHS compliant, and is available in two mounting styles, either adhesive or screw.
Founded in 1954, Richco has been specializing in supplying quality circuit board hardware, wire routing products, cable ties, clips & clamps, fan accessories, motion control products and fiber optic products. Richco also offers custom product design development, 3D tool design and development, rapid prototyping, production, and secondary operations.
Richco claims to have a wide range of standard proprietary products, as well as experience in custom injection molding. Richco currently operates in 14 locations worldwide.
The Company has also released its new heavy duty circuit board support, the DLCBSHD. This is believed by the company as a one-piece solution that obsoletes the need for screw-nut assemblies, which reduces inventory and assembly time. Its larger design provides a strong, sturdy mounting method for heavily-loaded PCBs, and is offered in five different spacer lengths. The DLCBSHD is RoHS compliant and is available in both UL94 V2 and UL94 V0 material.
Richco has also unveiled that it will be hosting Richco University outside of Chicago! Where, two sessions will be held in Atlantic City, NJ at the beginning of October 2010. The exact location of the site will be announced soon
