The Perfect Prescription for Reliable Performance

Cabling Solutions for Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

As pharmaceutical processing equipment becomes more flexible, more capable, and more intelligent, you can’t afford downtime. You need wire, cable, and related accessories that perform reliably under conditions ranging from cleanrooms to washdowns. Whether you need exceptional EMI shielding, continuous flexing, MTW ratings, or drive cables designed to withstand electrical and mechanical stresses, we have the wire or cable you need.

For over 80 years, Alpha Wire has worked with the pharmaceutical industry, developing new and better products to boost performance and reliability. Our VFD and servo cables, hook-up wire, FIT® heat-shrink tubing, and FIT wire management accessories have played a significant role in advancing the reliability and performance of pharmaceutical processing.

Alpha offers cable from stock in most sizes and constructions, in a variety of packaging options, so you can order it when you need it and how you need it. Our products are available for same-day shipment to practically anywhere in the world, eliminating long lead times.
