New England Wire Technologies Custom Cable, Tubing and Catheter Products
New England Wire Technologies manufactures custom wire and cable, braid or spiral reinforced tubing, lined catheter shafts and hybrid tubing. Our engineering and design experts assist in the development and testing of wire and cable products built for the most technologically advanced cables in the industry. Advanced extrusion expertise and extensive wire processing capabilities include thin-wall, close tolerance tubing, bonding layers of thermoplastic to fluoropolymer and braiding all types of round and flat wire.
Our medical product offerings include micro-miniature coax cables, reinforced silicone rubber cables, low-noise and parylene-coated cables, multi-conductor cables and custom profiles including ribbon cable, zip cord and woven cables; most are built to exacting customer specifications.
Custom coaxial cables for medical device and electronics manufacturers
New England Wire Technologies designs, manufactures and tests a wide range of coaxial cables to meet the custom needs of medical device and electronics manufacturers. Our miniature and micro-miniature coaxes are manufactured to meet the impedance, capacitance, or other exacting electrical requirements of the medical industry with custom options for the center conductor, shield and jacket.
Examples include high-strength alloy conductors for superior flex life and foamed dielectrics for reduced size and attenuation. By utilizing high-quality low dielectric constant materials New England Wire is able to reduce size without sacrificing signal integrity. In addition, we have the capability to combine multiple coaxes with other components into larger instrumentation cables. With short lead times and low minimum quantities New England Wire’s custom coaxial cable is the superior choice.
Multi-conductor cables for medical devices
Our highly customized multi-conductor cables utilize a wide range of conductor, shielding, and insulation materials, chosen to suit your specific medical device requirements.
Typical characteristics of our custom multi-conductor medical cables include: finely stranded conductors for ultimate flexibility, extended flex-life and resistance to fatigue, miniaturization (as low as 46 AWG), high or low temperature performance, low triboelectric noise and signal integrity, parylene coating to prevent tacky materials from tugging on skin, hair or fabric, and extruded insulation options that allow your device to be subjected to 250°C sterilization.
Hybrid cables for medical devices
Our creative engineering staff can design cable incorporating dissimilar components to suit your medical product 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.
Lumens / vent tubes can be utilized to transfer liquids or gases. Other cable components such as fiber optic filaments can be combined with multiple insulated conductors.
Strength members can be anything from stainless-steel cables to monofilaments to aramid fibers with a non fray extrusion. They can be cabled with other components to yield high tensile strength and low elongation.
Communications components including USB, Cat 5, HDMI, fiber optics or other configurations of coax or twisted pairs can be easily incorporated into the design. Improved versions like autoclave capable, low attenuation, or high flex life can be designed, built and tested in house.
Thermocouple extension wires using ANSI standard materials can be bundled into a cable or added with a jacket for breakout.
High-frequency power can be supplied using our custom litz wire preventing heating and saving space and energy.
Magnet wire twisted pairs for low-voltage signal can be bundled into many pairs or insulated for breakout with other components such as strength members or power leads.
Resistance wire can be placed in a cable for heating components or placed around tubes to heat the contents.
Medical braided products, catheter tubing, and braid and spiral reinforced tubing
Our subsidiary, New England Catheter, focuses on manufacturing braid and spiral reinforced medical tubing, lined catheter shafts and hybrid tubing. We work closely with our customers offering them custom-designed components, collaborative product design, prototyping and production capabilities. Our large variety of raw materials and short lead times help them through product design, prototype development and manufacture of their final components in the shortest design-to-market time possible.
