How We Manufacture Our Quik-Pull Cable Bundles
From wire selection to shipping, our process for manufacturing Quik-Pulls is fast and efficient.
Step 1: Selecting the Wire Type
The first step in the bundled cable manufacturing process is selecting the wire type. Our inventory includes THHN, SIS, XHHW, coax cable, and data cable. We can also combine different wire types into one bundle.
Step 2: Taking the Wire Type to the Print Line
Once the product is selected, it is then measured and cut to customer specification, resulting in no excess wire on the job site. Each conductor then receives custom printing or striping according, again, to the customer’s specification.
Step 3: Loading the Printed Reels onto the Payoff Tree
After the wire types are selected, measured, and printed to spec, they are then loaded onto the “payoff tree.” The size of the payoff tree is crucial for determining the size of the wire bundles. For example, our tree is capable of holding over 150 conductors per bundle.
Step 4: Selecting the Right Reel for the Bundle
A reel is selected based on the overall cable diameter in order to properly protect the cable during handling and transit to the job site.
Step 5: Bundling the Conductors
Our bundler applies a special nylon harness onto the conductors that tightly holds them together. Our team is capable of assembling and producing the bundles in a variety of configurations including straight, staggered, breakout, spiral, twisted pairs, stack spool, and loose parallels. Additionally, we can add a small footage tape to the cable to facilitate easy measuring or cutting on the job site.
Step 6: Taking the Cable Bundles to the Loading Dock
Finally, the bundled cables are taken to the loading dock where they are loaded onto enclosed trucks and then shipped to our customers.
