Abstract : The patent relates to an improved apparatus for tightly joining a cluster of wires or cables which used counter-rotating heads to wrap a relatively stiff tie wire around the cluster. A ramp on one of the heads cams the tie wire into a position where it is picked up by a pulley on the other head. As the heads rotate in opposite directions the tie wire is restrained by the above-mentioned pulley as well as a pulley on the head that has the ramp, thereby causing a tight wrap. The heads are housed in a removable cartridge to facilitate maintenance.
