New England Wire Technologies is an industry leader in the development and manufacture of custom profile and hybrid cables. Whether you’re looking for shaped cable, zip cord, woven cable, extruded or bonded ribbon cable, oval, rectangular or square, our huge inventory of tooling and in-house fabrication capabilities along with an extensive inventory of raw materials and engineering/technical experts make your custom project just another day at the office!
Custom profile cable can be designed for extra flexibility, extended extra flexibility, extended flex life, miniaturization, high or low temperature performance, low triboelectric noise, cut- through resistance or high tensile strength depending on your specific application.
New England Wire Technologies also manufactures formed (or compacted) cables, with copper densities as high as 90 percent, which have been used in applications such as high-efficiency generators and linear motors.
These cables are most often made with either bare copper, or magnet wire, and are formed to various profiles, which allow our customers to maximize the fill factor of their windings. In addition to wire, copper tubing used of cooling has been incorporated into some of our formed cable designs. Tape wraps and textile servings are available and in some cases extruded plastics are offered for additional voltage withstand. For more specific information, please visit our Litz Wire and Formed Cables page.
Ribbon cable, zip cords and woven cables are most often used in limited spaces where conventional round cables may not fit, are ultra-flexible allowing them to bend around small diameters, follow the contour of any surface and be layered in trays. Click here for additional design information.
Our creative engineering staff can design cable incorporating dissimilar components to suit your specific requirements. We offer cables combining insulated conductors with one or more vent tubes, lumens, thermocouple leads, resistance wires, strength members or any combination of complex configuration.
