Low Cost Cable Routing Construction

This routing construction comprises an opening 10 formed in a rib 12 of a die casting 14, for retaining wires 16 passing through the opening 10.

Rib 12 extends outwardly from the base 18 of die casting 14. Base 18 is provided with an opening 20 through it, so that core pin 22 may be used in the forming die for providing opening 10. Pin 22 contains a groove 24 which is radiused for providing the rounded internal surface of opening 10, having no sharp edges to damage wires 16 extending through opening 10.

Openings 10 in ribs 12 replace prior cable clamps and other attachments for routing low-voltage cables over die cast or plastic parts. After die casting, no secondary operations are required other than normal deburring; and the initial tooling for the die casting operation is the only cost incurred and is exclusive of any cost for separate cable clamps.
