Intercon 1 takes over Northwire discontinued machine vision cables

Intercon 1, owned by Nortech Systems, has announced it will take over manufacturing discontinued machine vision cable assemblies for Northwire of Osceola, Wisconsin.

‘We’re pleased to expand our customer base by offering Northwire’s customers responsive service, timely delivery and competitive pricing on their machine vision cable assembly needs,’ said Ron Folkeringa, Nortech Systems’ Intercon 1 business manager. ‘We can also provide technical support to Northwire’s machine vision cable assembly customers – whether across the country or around the world.’

In February 2018, Nortech Systems announced that Intercon 1 had expanded manufacturing capabilities in China to support regional machine vision customers in Asia with faster turnaround, reduced shipping time and cost, and local, on-demand engineering support.
