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.

Running Fast with Nonlinear Modeling

November 14, 2017

The efficiency of an optical cable manufacturing line can be improved significantly by increasing line speed. But to do so, the manufacturing process itself must be quite robust. It must withstand abnormalities and changes in the factory environment. Maillefer has taken several steps forward in bringing high speed capability to our customers, thanks to nonlinear modeling.

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.
