Abstract : A multiconductor flat cable incorporates an approximately right angle turn in its conductor runs. The right angle turn is provided by first securing the conductor runs in a desired spacing through a first lamination of insulation cover and base sheets while leaving portions of the conductor runs exposed through a window in the first lamination. The first lamination is then severed at the lateral edges of the window so that an end portion of the first lamination may be moved ninety degrees relative to a remaining body portion thereto. The right angle turn is then secured by forming a second lamination with cover and base layers so as to overlap the first lamination and the turn in the conductor runs.
