Improved SZ-Stranding Of Fiber Optic ...

Tags: Press Releases, Product Release

Rosendahl and Nextrom have elaborated a concept which perfectly coordinates performance and costs in one line.

Performance improvements

Speed is usually a key factor of performance. With a line speed of up to 200 m/min, the loose tubes are stranded at an impressive 2500 rpm.

But speed alone does not fulfill all the requirements a manufacturer has on a production line. Integrated components also have to ...
