Quality Standards


Quality is crucial for companies in the electronics industry with 'right first time' and 'zero defects' being essential.

Highblade is justly proud of the quality of its products and services and operates a policy of continual quality revue. The company is accredited with the international quality standard BS EN ISO 9001:2008. This quality management system covers all aspects of our processes from order processing to despatch, procurement and vendor assessment, off site work, design processes and staff training.

All of our products are manufactured to in-house drawings, which are retained indefinitely. Confidentially of product specifications and drawings is assured.

Our products are individually inspected and electronically tested prior to despatch using state of the art test equipment. Test results are logged and printouts can be provided with the goods if required.

We can offer full traceability on our products. When this is specified by our clients each individual product carries a unique serial number.

design service

Design Process

Highblade offers a free design service to its clients.

Design forms an integral part of the BS EN ISO 9001:2008 quality standard and must follow strict procedures, which include information gathering, implementation, prototyping, design revue, validation and approval.

We have produced custom designs not just for specialised cable assemblies, but also for interfaces, circuit boards, plastic injection mouldings, chassis components, equipment cases, plus LAN and structured wiring schemes.

Design work undertaken on behalf of our clients is conducted under the strictest confidence.



The EMC Regulations became mandatory on 1st January 1996. Amendment regulations implement the CE Marking Directive as it affects the EMC Directive. It is a requirement that equipment shall neither produce electromagnetic emissions, nor be affected by external electromagnetic fields. Cables can act as effective aerials, either radiating or picking up unwanted electromagnetic interference.

We offer a number of techniques to eliminate this problem including fully shielded connectors, double screened cables, filtered connectors and the use of ferrite sleeves and beads.
