Applicable Markets

  • Data Center

    The world does business at an ever increasing pace. Our always-on, highly integrated world requires businesses to operate faster, smarter and more efficiently. 3M connectors, Twin Axial cables, cable assemblies and other interconnect products are helping enable a new era of data center design.

  • Industrial and Manufacturing

    Imagine a robot relying on camera feedback being unable to correctly place a component due to poor data transmission. Machines must have clear communication to operate an effective assembly line. Any signal loss or corruption of data can have significant impact on the manufacturing process, leading to defects, lower yields and assembly line down time.

    3M’s reliable interconnect solutions can help you design, modify and customize your product, as well as seamlessly integrate our products into your manufacturing process on a global basis. We offer a wide range of solutions including connectors, cable assemblies and assembly tooling.
