Smart Buffering - Remarkable Material Savings

January 7, 2019

The productivity of an optical cable manufacturing line can be improved significantly by increasing line speed. Our buffering process has set totally new limits for the line speeds. When traditional manufacturing speeds have been increased by 300%, obvious process items must be redefined. 

The manufacturing process itself must be quite robust. Otherwise there are too many parameters which the line operator must control during production. In our smart buffering concept we are taking the process control to the next level by analyzing and understanding the relations between the process data and the end-product properties. The line's concept will also have enhanced operator guidance which will lead to remarkable annual material savings.

Digitalization – New Opportunities

November 23, 2016

We live in an information age where large volumes of data are continuously generated by human activity, scientific processes, and adoption of new technologies. Distilling the knowledge contained in such data has the potential to transform science, technology, and business. It will revolutionize how the manufacturing processes are organized and how they function. To fulfill the potential, data science builds on techniques and theories from many fields, including mathematics, statistical learning, machine learning, data engineering, decision analytics, signal processing, visualization, and high performance computing.

Maillefer at IWCS 2016 – Production efficiency – the only way to success!

October 14, 2016

At the Inernational Cable and Connectivity Symposium 2016 this October, we presented new limits for ultra-high speed buffering. The global demand for fiber optic cables is increasing at an ever growing rate. During the past 10 years the average yearly global growth has been 17 % and it is projected to keep increasing. At the same time the market has seen very tight competition between the margins. The key to this problem is in increasing the efficiency of cable manufacturing lines.
