Tag: Product Release

Would you like to significantly cut costs in your medium voltage rubber cable production? With Continuous Type Change (CTC) it is possible. The principle idea of CTC is to change tooling for the next product without stopping the line.

It is well known that type changes take time when they are done in the conventional way. By installing CTC into your crosshead, enables type changes in a blink of an eye. Not only a great deal of valuable time is saved but also material and energy. Conventional type changes always require hours of down time and piles of scrap material, but type changes with CTC requires only minutes and nearly nonexistent cable loss.

CTC is already widely used in XLPE medium ...
