Tag: Product Release

ZUMBACH Electronics presents the well proven JACKETMASTER system for sector insulations and sector cable jackets with the oscillating measurement device DVO 2.

Straight and pre-spiralled sectors, solid and stranded, aluminium and copper can be measured and controlled.

Width, height and insulation thickness as well as diameter, ovality and jacket thickness can be measured resp. calculated at accuracies within a few 1/100 mm .

Two highly precise DVO 2 measurement devices capture dynamically the relevant dimensions at high rates, before and after the extrusion. With an optional third measuring head at the cold end of the line, the hot-cold shrinkage can automatically be compensated.

Uhing Motion Drive® in Operation – A ...

by wireworld on 08/04/2017 - 09:28 am
Tag: Product Release

In April 2016, the latest innovation by Joachim Uhing GmbH & Co. KG was rolled out to the public: The Uhing Motion Drive® is an Uhing rolling ring drive that was endowed “intelligence” by integrating sensors and electronic controller. A visit to a company operating it illustrates how the system proves its worth during operation.

For many years, the Uhing customer, a steel refiner located in North Rhine Westphalia, has been using a machine that winds flat wire on a spool. The solution used so far caused frequent problems during winding that in turn resulted in interruptions of the automated downstream process. Also, fully wound spools had to be rewound often more carefull ...

Tag: Product Release

Guill Tool & Engineering introduces a new single-point concentricity extrusion crosshead that uses micro-fine adjustment screws for precise concentricity adjustment. The precision of concentricity reaches 0.008” or finer per revolution.  This single point concentricity adjustment is a unique Guill innovation for the extrusion of thin-walled jacketing and precision ID/OD tubing. One adjustment bolt controls 360° of adjustment.

Features of the single-point crosshead include a patented cam-lock deflector for quick changeovers, with a residence time of one minute at .5 lb/hr material flow, optimized usage with extruders measuring ½” and ¾”, and ...

Tag: Product Release

ABB announced its latest innovation in transformer technology, with the introduction of a 66 kilovolts (kV) WindSTAR transformer that can fit into the tower of a wind turbine. This will enable a new generation of powerful offshore wind turbines to operate at a world record voltage of 66 kV, twice the existing 33 kV level. The boost in voltage level will significantly reduce losses and make the wind generation systems more efficient. It also brings lifecycle benefits and cost-efficiency gains.

As an initial success, ABB has delivered five new WindSTAR transformers to MHI Vestas Offshore Wind, to be deployed at the world's first 66 kV offshore wind farm in the UK. The Blyth Offshore Demonstra ...

Tag: Product Release

PEEK and X-ETFE are just two of the many materials we can mention when it comes to special material cables. And special materials have special requirements for the cable production process.

Rosendahl Nextrom GmbH's process and product know-how have helped to further adjust and improve their cable making machines in order to secure the material’s properties. We have, for example, extended our portfolio to include high-temperature crossheads that are remarkable due to their highest degree of centricity and perfect material flow. But not only the extrusion crosshead plays a big role: it takes all the line components, from pay-off, extruder, double reeler and take-up, to support the utm ...

Tags: Press Releases, Product Release

Vassena Dies presents a preview of the drawing mill industry Dies VG402R.1 new, designed for high-speed wire drawing. These are equipped with an innovative pressure compass TITANIUM coated, developed according to a new criterion for the calculation of internal geometries.  These calculations are both of the chain that of the bush, in order to obtain a greater anchoring of the lubricant on the wire, thus reducing the friction that is generated during wire drawing.

Automatically it is increased the speed of drawing and the chain length and significantly reduced the incidence of the cost of the supply chain on the machining process.

Tags: Press Releases, Product Release

HV power cables can be designed in many different ways – depending on their field of application. We at Rosendahl have placed our focus on metal sheathed cables with subsequent jacketing. And all that in one line.

These types of HV power cables are used for indoor as well as outdoor, direct buried or conduit installations. Other special applications can be considered submarine power cables, such as dynamic cables for floating platforms with a corrugated copper sheath, or power cables for renewable energy, such as export cables for offshore wind farms and cables for photovoltaic power plants. 

Metal sheathed cables require high precision technology for the production process. Ma ...

Tag: Product Release

Interwire 2017 proved a successful showcase for PWM, leading manufacturer of cold welding equipment, which exhibited two of its best-selling machines at the event.

“Visitor numbers were good and the booth was busy, with our EP500 rod welder and heavy-duty M101 cold welder in particular generating a lot of interest,” said PWM’s managing director, Steve Mepsted.

“These machines have been popular with wire and cable manufacturers for many years, due to their ease of use and reliable performance. Both are equipped with dies that are precision engineered in our own workshops to produce strong permanent welds, reducing waste and minimising downtime.”

Tags: Press Releases, Product Release

Sjogren Industries is celebrating its 90th Anniversary as a leading solutions provider for the wire and cable industry.

Founded in 1927 by Oscar Sjogren, the company has long been an innovator in the design and manufacturing of customized solutions for the wire tooling trades.

As a Swedish immigrant working in a wire mill in Worcester, MA, Sjogren had an idea that would change the wire and cable industry forever. He designed a tool that would make him better at his job and he had the integrity to show that tool to his supervisor.

After selling the tool to the mill, Sjogren used it in his daily work. It was the first of series of innovations that would eventually lead to Sjogren forming hi ...
