A high-density cable structure, containing fiber ribbons inserted tightly into slots, is proposed for a high-fiber-count feeder line. This paper describes theoretical and experimental investigations on the residual strain due to inserting ribbons into a helical slot in this cable. The residual strain caused by different insertion methods is clarified and a strain suppression method is discussed. Based on the results, 600-fiber cable is manufactured and the transmission and mechanical performances are confirmed to be excellent.
