View our approach to cable manufacturing

Our cable design process begins with an in-depth conversation with the customer to determine their requirements, the application the cable will be used for, and the operating environment. Our expert team then begin designing the ideal solution for your technical requirements and budget, sourcing high-quality materials selected specifically for your cable.

All of the cables we produce are different; for the most part, however, we build cables using Class 5 flexible plain, tinned or silver plated copper, insulated in appropriate grades of PVC, Polyethylene, Polypropylene, or PTFE – all to UL or BS Specifications.

We then twist the conductors in the cable using either our high speed double twist bunchers or large planetary lay-up machines.

Then, screening is applied if necessary – if not, the cable is fast forwarded to the cable extrusion process. The cable is then wound onto the despatch reels where it is subjected to a strenuous quality assured testing procedure to confirm it’s conformity to the specification.

Finally, the cable is shipped to the customer on the specified delivery date with all of the accompanying documentation.
