Cutting Control on Cables and Wire

Surface and diameter independent cable assembly

Cable and wire are rewound and cut at high speed. Due to the high raw material prices, the ordered sales lengths must be kept as precisely as possible. Too short roll lengths result in complaints. Roll lengths that are too long consume the sales margin. Maximum accuracy and reliability as well as longevity are achieved with the contactless laser encoder systems μSPEED.

Typical application data:

  • Length measurement of insulated, bare cables, small and large cable diameters
  • Path Velocity: typically up to 300 m / min
  • Measurement accuracy with tactile measuring equipment or via drive: typically 1 – 2%
  • Measurement accuracy with non-contact length measurement μSPEED: typically 0.05%
  • Amortization: 2 months, direct encoder replacement, no other modifications needed

Material examples:

  • Single cores, stranded cables, strands, bare wires, extruded cables
  • Multi-core cables, flat cables, power cables, submarine cables, …
  • ropes, wire ropes, ….

Machines equipped with non-contact length measurement:

  • Winding machines, rewinders, Roll cutting machines, roll cutters
  • Spooling machine, rewinding machine, cable cutting machine
  • extruder, stranding machine, banding machine
