The House of Experts showcases the latest innovations and know-how in wire and cable production technology, piloting and optimization in one booth. The unique virtual reality application connects the digital and physical production worlds and invites you to join!

At Interwire 2019, Maillefer takes the next step in the digitalization of manufacturing and introduces the Smart Factory. With the virtual reality application, a visitor can simulate different production parameters and set-ups applicable in Maillefer factories. While the full spectrum of our consultation products is now available at, altogether 10 new solutions are showcased at the booth.

Maillefer Smart Factory combines a physical factory model with additional instrumentation and online diagnostics, enabling the prediction of abnormal process behaviors before critical quality issues take place. For example, with Online Curing Control OCC you can manage your curing process in real time using exact process measurements. As a result, there are fewer scrap and cable failures.

For more complex production systems, Davis-Standard offers an advanced EPIC III® process control solution with data acquisition. This Windows®-based solution can be customized for any extrusion application. Advantages include a 23-inch wide-screen monitor, a detailed graphic overview and custom report feature, historical trending, event log and data collection, multi-level security and network capability.

In medium, high and extra high voltage cable production, Maillefer Topography Scanner controls your extrusion quality continuously. You can find an optimal set of parameters and increase the productivity of your CV line.

For fiber optic cable producers, the Maillefer Smart Buffering concept sets totally new limits for line speeds. It analyzes and understands the relations between the process data and the end-product properties and offers enhanced operator guidance. The concept could bring up to €300,000–400,000 in annual material savings.

Rubber cable production gets its own innovation with Davis-Standard’s multipurpose cold feed rubber extruders. These extruders are technologically advanced, reliable and built for longevity for a wide range of rubber applications. Davis-Standard also offers the DSREV extruder in multiple configurations. This extruder design features a patented pneumatic roll feed system for uniform and consistent feed rate, electric heating and water-cooling for quicker response times, and feedscrew designs that maximize output and minimize scorch.

Maillefer Crosshead ECH 12/16 OF offers excellent concentricity, high performance and exceptional user friendliness. Alignment Stand ALS 40 is the answer for misalignment issues in secondary coating. It ensures that all necessary components are always perfectly aligned, enabling a stable process and easy operation.
