Custom cables

Cables for your every need

At Habia we specialise in the design and manufacture of high-performance custom cables and cable systems for extreme environments and demanding applications.

As a trusted supplier of cables since 1957, we’re experts in combining high-quality materials to build creative new cable solutions – whether that be simple wires in non-standard sizes, coaxial cables with odd impedance requirements or complex multi-core hybrid cables.

Tailor-made for your needs

With over 30 standard insulation and jacket materials and a wide range of approvals and manufacturing capabilities, we work closely with our customers to find smart solutions that match their application and budget. Every aspect of the conductor, screen, insulation and jacket can be tailored to meet your specific needs.

We have a deep understanding of our customers' requirements and have developed a comprehensive range of superior materials and solutions – which is continually expanding.  

Below you find an overview of our custom cable components.

Custom cable components

Cable with conductor highlighted


Also known as the wire or the core. Many types are available on request, but the standard types available from Habia are: - Tin Plated Copper (TPC) - Silver Plated Copper (SPC) - Nickel Plated Copper (NPC) - Silver High Strength Alloy (HSA)

Tapes (binders) and fillers

Allowing the components of the cable to move, flex and fit together more easily when cabled (or twisted) together. The addition of fillers and tapes can improve cable flexibility and flex-life, as well as keeping cores / pairs together electrically.

Shielding / Screening

Applied to reduce electrical interference from the surrounding environment, or from other components within the cable itself. - Braided screens - Foils - Lapped (served/spiralled) screens - Stainless steel armouring
