Braid Twisting

Solution for Braid Twisting

Quality stems from repeatability which is derived through consistency of both material and process and there are several areas within the cable assembly industry where process consistency can make, or break, overall quality of the end product. One such area is in managing braid on shielded cables.

Whether the braid is to be removed, folded-back or twisted it is essential to ensure that the fibres are not overworked, and therefore work-hardened and brittle and that the braid can be handled with minimal loss of strands.

Often a braid is required to take a crimp or other termination and to prepare for this it is normally twisted into a pigtail; however, there is ‘braid twisting’ and then there is braid twisting!

The BSV 1003 and 1006 from BÖWE Elektrik ensure that each braid is twisted in the same direction, to the same tension and with the same number of twists to provide a reproducible crimp force… basically they ensure repeatability and quality whilst reducing labour costs.

Repeated twisting causes operator fatigue and can lead to RSI. Using BÖWE Elektrik braid twisters can completely eliminate this..

As usual with BÖWE Elektrik products, minimal maintenance and fast operation help ensure a fast payback and ongoing returns on what is a relatively modest investment.
