Image Number 3 for United States Patent #4276108.
A coiled section (16) of a plastic sheathed stub cable (10) is placed on a support (43) which is orbited about a longitudinal axis of a straight section (13) of the stub cable. The straight section of cable is positioned coaxially within an aperture formed in a casing part (12) which is mounted in a rotating nest (16). The juncture (70) between the apertured casing and the cable sheath is heated (81), whereafter a bead (91) of bonding material is extruded around the juncture. A molding die (106) is moved into the extruded bead to force portions of the bead into the juncture to form a homogeneous weld with the cable sheath and casing parts while uniformly shaping the remaining portions.
