New England Wire Technologies offers a wide variety of shaped cables: zip-cords, extruded ribbon cables, bonded ribbon cables, oval, rectangular and woven cables. Our large selection of conductor and insulation materials is suitable for applications requiring sterilization, biocompatibility, and fluid resistance. These cables can be designed for extra flexibility, extended flex life, miniaturization, high or low temperature performance, low triboelectric noise, cut- through resistance and high tensile strength.

Our custom profile cables may be used where ultimate flexibility is needed in a flat or specific shape; excellent for use in limited spaces where conventional round cables may not fit. Most tooling is designed and manufactured in-house, allowing for complete control over the design while offering rapid in-process modification for quick-turn prototyping.

Custom Design Options:

  • Ribbon Cables:
    Our unique ribbon cables combine multiple components within a highly flexible flat profile, precisely controlling the wire spacing, the insulation thickness and the overall cable shape. Typically manufactured using PVC, TPE, TPU or silicone rubber, our cables are highly customized using in-house tooling capabilities for consistent, reliable product designed to suit your application.

    Other ribbon cable options include solvent bonding of PVC conductors or UV bonding of various materials using an FDA approved adhesive for use in medical applications.
  • Zip-Cords:
    Zip-Cords are generally two components in parallel, or two multi-conductor legs laid parallel and intended to separate for easy termination. Our zip-cords are manufactured using extruded insulations; typically PVC, TPE, TPU or silicone rubber.
  • Woven Cables:
    A wide range of woven configurations is possible integrating a variety of conductor materials and insulation plastics.
