  • Creating a quality twisted pair
  • Twisting and laying in a CAN wire pair
  • Bundling and twisting techniques are covered as we draw the loom together before sleeving and wrapping with appropriate materials
  • Defining and binding transitions with polyamide and fibre tape
  • Fibre tape wrapping harness legs
  • Heat sleeving a section of the loom and adding ‘glueline’ transitions
  • Wire stripping and terminating several common connector types


If time permits at the end of the day we will aim to cover the basics of making high flexibility crimped battery cable assemblies.

For those looking at professional motorsport wiring please look at our pro wiring courses which work with aerospace wire and autosport style connectors.
