New England Wire Technologies is the leading electric wire manufacturer of custom cables, Litz wire, flat braided cable, high temperature electronic wire and multi-conductor cable in the industry. Products include insulated wire and cables, audio cables, low noise cables, coiled cords, coaxial cables, superconductor cables, medical cables, wire design services, and medical tubing.

NEWT has been a major player in the custom wire and cable business for over 100 years. We have supplied custom cables, flat braided wire and multi-conductor cable solutions to companies large and small, including medical device manufacturers, the automotive industry, defense and aerospace contractors, telecommunications designers, audio/visual component manufacturers, cable assembly houses and more.

Medical Electronics

Today's medical electronics industry requires medical cable manufacturers to produce technologically advanced medical cables that are built to exacting specifications. New England Wire Technologies fully understands that maintaining the high quality of our medical cables, such as custom EKG patient cables, can literally mean the difference between life and death. Years of expertise researching, developing, and manufacturing high-performance EKG patient cables and other custom medical cable assemblies provides the ideal background for satisfying market needs.

Capabilities:

  • Ultra Flexible If cable flexibility is a concern, fine wire stranding and flexible insulation materials will make even large medical cables manageable.
  • High Flex Life
    An extensive line of alloy conductors, matched with the results of years of flex life research, allows us to design reliable EKG patient cables and other custom medical cables that will outperform those of our competitors.
  • Autoclavable
    NEWT's medical cables for autoclavable solutions enable greater durability to endoscope devices. NEWT also provides a variety of medical adaptor cables and components for the medical OEM market that will reduce average service costs.
  • Low-Noise
    Small signal applications require special designs to ensure signal integrity. Our high-performance NEWtral® Low-Noise Cables are specifically designed to eliminate problems with mechanically generated noise.
  • Low-Elongation/High-Tensile Strength Jackets
    When cleaning a medical cable jacket, the wiping process can cause the highly flexible jacket to stretch. Our NEWtuf® Reinforced Silicone Rubber Jackets eliminate this problem without sacrificing the benefit of high flexibility.
  • Low-Kink
    Using special manufacturing techniques, deterioration of the once aesthetically pleasing cable jacket can be prevented.
  • Miniaturization Fine wire conductors and high-performance insulation materials allow for significant size reduction without sacrificing performance.
  • Medical Tubing
    Our subsidiary, New England Catheter Corporation, manufactures custom braid reinforced medical tubing, lined catheter shafts and hybrid tubing utilizing advanced extrusion expertise and extensive wire processing capabilities. New England Catheter's capabilities also include thin-wall, close tolerance tubing, bonding layers of thermoplastic to fluoropolymer, and braiding all types of round or flat wire.

Instrumentation Test and Measurement

Testing and measuring the reliability, performance, and durability of instruments for medical, scientific and industrial use requires a high degree of technical knowledge and a broad range of manufacturing expertise.

New England Wire Technologies is widely recognized for our ability to produce cables with extra flexibility, extended flex life, durability, and low noise-characteristics that are essential in medical electronics, scientific research, geology, robotics, and general electronics.

Our ultra flexible cables are the right choice when the unrestricted motion of an instrument is vital. We combine stranded conductors and thin-wall extrusions to produce cables with extreme flexibility. For applications where high reliability in repeated motion operations is a must, our high-flex multi-conductor cables unite high strength alloys with abrasion-resistant plastic insulators to create cable products with superior, long-term flexibility. Our low-noise cables like NEWtral® help reduce or eliminate internal noise generation to improve the accuracy and reliability of electronic signals. And our geophysical and scientific cables are built to withstand the rigors of both field and laboratory use. All can be manufactured to your exact specifications.

We are able to readily manufacture these types of products because of our extensive in-house Quality Control Laboratory that has capabilities for sophisticated product testing including: flex testing, cold chamber (to -100C), tensile elongation testing, and voltage breakdown. Our comprehensive in-house design, fabrication, and testing strengths allows New England Wire Technologies to manufacture cables to meet your critical performance and test standards and requirements.
