Abstract

Cylindrical mandrel 1 is covered with a continuous sheet 2 of insulating material. The free surface of sheet 2 is coated with an adhesive. Conductor wire 3 is wound helically over sheet 2 at an accurate predetermined pitch so that adjacent turns are spaced apart. Wire 3 adheres to sheet 2. Longitudinal cuts are then made along mandrel 1 to separate the assembly into one or more strips of sheet 2 with parallel transverse conductor wires. In an alternative arrangement, strips 4 of the insulating material are placed on mandrel 1 in place of continuous sheet 2. The longitudinal cuts are made between strips 4 so that the ends of the conductor wires extend beyond the edges of each strip 4. Alternatively, sheet 2 can be formed with holes or slots through which the longitudinal cuts are made.
