A twisted cable is defined as pair of wires twisted together with each other AND carrying the same signal/power/current going out and back.
Twisting random wires together that have nothing to do with each other will potentially create problems because the noise in one wire will become coupled to the other wire. -Or- Two signal that have nothing to do with each will interfere with one another.
Hence a cable with multiple wires that have different purposes but collectively contain in a single multiwire cable where they all follow one big twist together does NOT qualify as a twisted cable.
are not communication cables, just industrial control cables.
They are cool the way they are arranged: a green/yellow ground
in the center and then numbered wires starting at "1"
radiating around the ground. So with ground there are 7, 13,
37 conductors. Some cables have place holding fillers to
stack nicely. I think the whole cable does
twist, but very slowly, perhaps one turn every 2 meters.

Your industrial cables may already be twisted. CAT 5 Ethernet
cable uses twisted pairs inside the plastic jacket, for example.

Here is a question about twisting the bus wires. Would
it work to twist the wires after they are installed?
Like a tourniquet, put a stick at the mid point and
start twisting. Like this:
Sure one side would be clockwise and the other counter
clock wise. I think the telephone company did flip their
wires every ten poles or so.
I didn't twist anything and the layout runs OK. But if
I had problems this might help. ( For me it would be
hard, I used 10 conductor industrial cables )
I did add a snubber to Ruth Mountain, the longest wire
