The article presents a comparison of the features of cable made with Nano-Dies and cable made with conventional dies. It states that Nano-Dies cable uses high-quality nano-dies for stranding and compacting ability while conventional dies uses high-quality plastic cable ducts (PCD) dies for stranding and compacting. It also informs that Nano-Dies are supplied by Charlottesville, Virginia-based supplier of long-lasting tooling materials Nano-Diamond America Inc.
