Sycor | Value Added Services I Wire and Cable Distributor Canada US Intl

Anyone can distribute wire and cable.  Sycor takes our business to the next level and offers time-saving services for our clients in Canada, USA and Internationally.  These services help our customers organize their production time and simplify the manufacturing approach.

Value Added Services We Offer

Custom Re-Spooling

All types of wire and cable can be re-spooled into exactly desired lengths.  This enables the dispersal of one wire or cable style to a number of different plant/job locations and reduces excess weight and costly inventories.

Cutting and Stripping

Sycor is your one-stop solution for all your wire and cable cutting needs.  Whether the pieces are 1” or 144”, we can save your time and money.

Our facility is equipped with state of the art cutting equipment.  Cut lengths can be hot tin-dipped, specially packaged to provide you with the exact material you need, and ready to use for all of your wiring purposes.

To request a quotation,

  1. Identify the type of wire or cable that you require (Type&AWG ie TEW 22AWG Stranded)
  2. Identify the overall length of the cut piece
  3. Identify End Preparation: blunt cut, partial strip, full strip, ROJ-removal of jacket

Blunt: clean-cut – straight

Partial Strip: insulation is cut to expose the length required, but not removed thereby protecting the exposed end until ready to use

Full Strip: insulation is removed exposing the required length of conductor – ready to use

ROJ: for multi-conductor cable, the outer jacket can be removed to expose the inner conductors.  The inner conductors can then be blunt, partial or fully stripped per requirements.

You can request a quote online, email us or give us a call.  Our sales representatives are available if you have any questions about sizes and types of insulation that can be cut.

Examples:

Tin Dipping – Most commonly used to fuse loose strands in preparation for soldering installation.

Wire – Dyeing/Re-Colouring

Most wire is available in ten standard colour options to choose for their requirements.  Sycor can dye white wire to any colour that you desire.  The colour will not crack, run, or peel and is resistant to abrasion, corrosion, and fungus.  Some wire and cable insulations are more susceptible to dyeing than others.  Contact one of our sales representatives to help determine if a certain insulation material can be dyed. 


Wire – Striping

Standard colour codes only give engineers 10 colour options.  Striping wire allows various other colour code combinations to make working with large numbers of conductors more efficient.  We can apply both Longitudinal (straight) and Spiral (twisted around) stripes.  Our capabilities allow us to apply up to three stripes of three different colours per wire with 30% coverage as per the European (CE) specification.

We can stripe various insulations and gauges.  Most commonly striped insulations include PVC, SRPVC, XLPE, PVC + NYLON (TFFN/THHN) and XLPVC.

More...

APPLICATIONS

  • Control Panels - various wires going in many different directions.
  • Metering (Hydro) - standard striped colour codes when wiring (T90/RW90).
  • Applications in which a wide variety of colours are required.
  • Identification in cable harnesses and/or assemblies.
 

GAUGES AND SIZE LIMITATIONS

We can stripe various insulations and gauges.  Most commonly striped insulations include PVC, SRPVC, XLPE, PVC+NYLON (TFFN/THHN), AND XLPVC.  We do not stripe Teflon or rubber in-house but can supply this type of material.

Subject to put-up lengths and insulations.  Our general capabilities are as follows.  Contact our sales representatives to confirm your requirement:

  • Largest Gauge - 8 AWG, 133 Strand - Spiral Stripe
  • Largest Gauge - 6 AWG, 133 Strand - Longitudinal
  • Smallest Gauge - 24 AWG, 7 Strand - Spiral/Longitudinal

Printing and Marking

We specialize in custom marking and printing for customers who find it beneficial to have their trade name, part number, and/or logo on select wires, cables, tubing, and sleeving products.  We can use both Ink Jet and print wheel systems to fully satisfy the needs of our customers.

A one-time set-up fee applies to each printing setup.  Wires/cables vary in diameter which affects what can be printed on the product.  Contact one of our sales representatives for more information.  Subject to certain minimums. You may also be interested in our custom cable product offering.

Twisting

Twisting is commonly used in applications that require custom colour codes without the expense of using build-to-order cables.  Twisting is used quite often with jumpers and cable harnesses to simplify cable installation and can reduce signal noise.  The pattern repeats at certain intervals from 1/2” to 11/2” varying from gauge to gauge.  The most commonly used lays are left-hand lays.

More...

APPLICATION

  • Jumpers, leads, cable harnesses, and assemblies.
  • Wiring that requires a specific color code without having to buy large runs of custom cables.
  • Space constraints.
  • Cables are sometimes much more expensive than a traditional twist.
  • Twisting wires into pairs, triads, and quads for ease of use.

THE LAY OF A TWIST
 
Lay Defintion Characteristics

Regular Lay

  • Most common on lay in which the wires wind in one direction and the strands the opposite direction (Right lay shown).
  • For Right lay: Strands wound to the right around the core (Regular lay shown).
  • For left lay: Strands wound to the left around the core (Regular lay shown).
  • Less likely to kink and untwist; easier to handle; more crush resistant.
  • The right lay is the most common construction.
  • The left lay can be used in a few special situations (i.e. cable tool drilling line).

Lang Lay

  • Wires in strand and strands of rope wind the same direction (Right and left lang lay shown).
  • Increased resistance to abrasion; greater flexibility and fatigue resistance than regular lay; will kink and untwist.

Alternate Right Lay

  • Alternate strands of right regular lay and lang lay.
  • Combines the best features of regular and lang

Bonding

We are one of the few manufacturers in North America that have the capability to bond wires together in a parallel construction.  This is sometimes referred to as "festooning" and is used in jobs which require vertical flexibility due to space constraints.  Conductors are bonded together using a specially formulated adhesive.

More...

APPLICATIONS

  • Trailers, cars, trucks, trains, buses, and airplanes
  • Festooning systems (conveyor belts, elevators, etc.)
  • Control panels and switchboards
  • Space constraints areas
 
MATERIAL WE CAN BOND
Single and Multi-Conductors
Coaxial Cable
Fiber Optics
GAUGE & SIZE LIMITATIONS
22 to 24 awg – up to 18 conductors
18 to 20 awg – up to 18 conductors
10 to 14 awg- up to 8 conductors

Bundling

Quick Pull can save you time and money by eliminating the need of multi-spool setups.  This service bundles wire and cable into a single-crossed, lashed cable assembly which allows for many wires to be pulled at once to simplify installation.  With only one cable to pull, it will take less time to get the job done.  Sycor can bundle any gauge wire, cable, and fiber optic type together with a strong bonded nylon material.

Terminating

Do you need your wire or cable terminated or spliced?  Beyond our capability to cut your product to length, we can speed up your production further by delivering your wire or cable ready to kit or install.  We are tooled for most popular terminals and connectors and conform to UL and CSA standards.  Let us know how we can help you.

Ground Straps

For grounding where flexibility is required and an be made in various braid sizes.  Ends can be tin-dipped and punched with a bolt hole, terminated with rings, or made into ground shunts with connectors.

Custom Armouring

Whether you have an indoor or outdoor requirement, adding a shielding of galvanized steel or aluminum to your core material can help control disruptions in data transmission.  Sycor also has optional jacketing services.  We can apply PVC to the outside of the armour to provide extra defence from dirt or water.  This specially formulated PVC can be custom printed and comes in different colour options for better cable identification.

Tube and Sleeve Cutting

Our automated state-of-the-art equipment allows us to keep cut tolerances accurate and eliminates costly mistakes incurred with hand cutting. Since many tubing and sleeving applications require custom lengths, Sycor provides custom cutting of all types of tubing and sleeving.

More...

APPLICATIONS

  • For use with terminations, strain relief, and/or protection.
  • Simplifying assembly of harnesses and assemblies.
  • Cost reduction due to less wasted material.
  • Job requirements identified by custom lengths and colour coding.
