New England Wire Technologies Introduces Extruded Ribbon Cables
Lisbon, NH - New England Wire Technologies, a world leader in the manufacture of specialty wire and cable products, introduces extruded ribbon cables. Typically manufactured with an adhesive bonding, our unique ribbon cables are manufactured using a proprietary extrusion process that allows multiple wires to be placed into a highly flexible flat cable, precisely controlling the wire spacing, the insulation thickness, and the overall cable shape while producing a more consistent, reliable cable at lower cost. Excellent for use in limited spaces where conventional round cables may not fit, ribbon cables are ultra-flexible allowing them to bend around small diameters, follow the contour of any surface and be layered in trays. They also permit heat dissipation, reduce cross-talk and are easily separated for termination. Our experienced technical staff work with customers to create a product meeting their individual requirements using a variety of conductor sizes and alloys, plastic insulations such as TPE, PVC and silicone rubber. All of our proprietary equipment and most tooling is designed and built in house allowing for complete control while offering quick in-process modifications and excellent lead times. Our cable specialists are ready to begin working on custom ribbon cables for your robotics, control system, light power, patient monitoring equipment or any other application where you need flexible, reliable and consistent ribbon cable, zip cords or flat cable.
