Beginning January 2016, Data Cable expanded their manufacturing solutions to include overbraiding technology with two new braiding machines, a 16 carrier and a 24 carrier, capable of covering bundles ranging from 0.25” - 1.00” in diameter.
Overbraiding is an alternative to cable sheathing, polymer split loom, and pre-woven sleeve. It is commonly used in heavy off-road equipment and automotive industries for heat and abrasion protection of wire harnesses. Compared to split loom and prefabricated woven covers, overbraiding easily accommodates specification changes to wire length or rev changes, without having an impact on the work in progress.
Overbraiding is highly versatile in its application and is used in a wide variety of industries because it is available in an array of colours, and material, which can be individualized to industry and/or manufacturer specifications. This degree of customization and efficiency helps to keep costs lower.
This application is completed by feeding the branches of a wire harness/cable assembly through the braiding machine and creating a seamless, durable, woven polymer covering which encompasses the entirety of the wire harness. The end result is commonly referred to as braided cable assembly or braided wire harness.
Braided electrical wire is ideal for applications where high temperature, excessive friction, corrosive chemicals, oil or moisture are present. The braiding machines can also be set up using tinned copper strands where seamless shielding is required for EMI protection.
