IRX Cable Twister

Eagle Insights: Tool Time – Cable Twister

Welcome to Tool Time with iRex, a video series where our production experts walk you through a step by step demonstration showcasing proper cable tooling and production practices. Today we’re showing you our Cable Twister.

As always, we begin by double checking the info outlined on the traveler or spec sheet that came with the order, noting cable length, cable mix, and twist length. After assembling the right mix of wires, we set the twist length into the machine and hit the pedal to start twisting. As we twist, we keep an eye on the counter to track the number of twists and adjust the air pressure using the knob on the side. Once the cable is assembled, we double check the newly twisted length before passing along to QC.

Stay tuned for more of our video series, Eagle Insights: Tool Time. Thanks for watching!
