Here is my best explanation:

'hefty type' is the definition.

'of cable split across diameter' is the wordplay.
'split' indicates anagramming the letters.
'across' indicates putting letters inside.
'diameter' becomes 'd' (mathematics).
'ofcable' is an anagram of 'bolface'.
'bolface' enclosing 'd' is 'BOLD FACE'.
