Multiply the Probabilities for Success

June 20, 2018

An extrusion line is composed of many components linked together in series. When a supplier delivers a less than reliable piece of equipment, the likelihood of line failure grows and the level of acceptability drops. We can only insist that particular care be exercised when choosing your extrusion equipment and provider.

TCA's Quick Cycle Times

September 22, 2017

Great news for pipe manufacturers! We've just reduced cycle times on all recent TCA coilers by 6% to over 10%. Plus we've added a single strap feature on our smaller model. Imagine what those fewer seconds can get you in terms of coil lengths. The ability to satisfy buyers with coils in sizes ready for consumers may be the manufacturing advantage that you've been waiting for.

Growing Undersea Infrastructure Redefines Quality Requirements

July 26, 2017

Since the early times of extruded high voltage subsea XLPE insulated cables, it has been mandatory to develop reliable in-house solutions for jointing either XLPE or lead extrusion lengths. The manufacturing lengths are connected by so called Factory Vulcanized Joints (FVJ). The factory joints make it possible to proceed with the application of subsequent cable layers in processes not sensitive to restarts after a break.

New Three-layer Crosshead

January 4, 2017

Our new three-layer crosshead THX 100/180 LR is now available for high and extra high voltage cable insulations. Optimized bi-flow distributors enable accurate wall thickness, centricity and roundness of the cable. Short residence times, streamlined flow channels and efficient water tempering allows long production lengths, and smooth layer surfaces. Centering of all layers can be adjusted independently. Distributors and bodies are made of nitrided steel to ensure continuity in production for many years.

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.
