Title: Method and device for the twisting of at least two single-lines

Abstract: The present invention refers to a method of twisting at least two individual conductors comprising the following steps: fixing the first conductor ends of individual conductors, which have been cut off to a suitable length, in respective separate untwisting fixation means which are rotatable essentially parallel to a twisting axis; fixing the second conductor ends of said individual conductors in respective separate twisting fixation means which are arranged such that they are adapted to be rotated in common about said twisting axis; arranging a twisting slide between the essentially tensioned conductors; and rotating the twisting fixation means in common about the twisting axis and rotating the untwisting fixation means about the conductor axis of the respective conductors in the same direction. This method aims at achieving a reduced production expenditure for twisted conductors on the basis of more flexible production conditions. In addition, the present invention refers to an apparatus for twisting at least two individual conductors.
