Sikora to Showcase Its Measuring, Control, Inspection, Sorting and Analysis Technologies
The newly launched X-Ray 8000 Advanced will be a highlight at the Interwire 2019. With the X-ray based system, the company has introduced high-speed technology (HST) that is tailored to the demands of MV, HV and EHV cable production. It represents an advanced alternative to the successful and established X-Ray 8000 NXT. The system is equipped with 16 measuring sensors and measures the diameter, wall thickness and eccentricity of cables in CV lines up to ten times faster than the X-Ray 8000 NXT, for more efficient control and information transparency in terms of Industry 4.0.
Other highlights will be devices of the Laser Series 2000 and Laser Series 6000 that are components for diameter measurement on a sophisticated level. The classic and high-end devices are used in extrusion lines or rewinding applications for wire drawing, with precision and continuous functionality without calibration or maintenance times. Up to 5,000 measurements per second per axis, all with high single value precision, allow for optimum line control and provide reliable statistical data. The integrated lump detector function ensures detection of irregularities on the product surface of transparent and non-transparent materials. In addition to standard interfaces, the device series provides OPC UA.
Gauge heads will be displayed for the measurement of the fiber temperature at the hot position of the drawing process, to determine the fiber temperature for the control of the furnace, and at the cold end, to exactly dose the helium used for the cooling and, therefore, to save costs. In addition, a gauge head for the determination of the concentricity of the coating as well as for the detection of lumps on the surface of the coated fiber will be exhibited.
A further attraction will be the Purity Scanner for on-line inspection and sorting of plastic pellets that are used for the insulation of medium, high and extra-high voltage cables as well as onshore and offshore cables. The combination of an X-ray camera with a dual optical camera system detects contamination on the surface as well as inside plastic pellets. Contaminated pellets are sorted out automatically.

Wardwell Braiding to Exhibit Its A16 Carrier Speed-master Braider and 24 Carrier Maypole Braider
Wardwell Braiding is co-exhibiting at Interwire 2019 with SKET and Spirka and will present two new pieces of braiding equipment. The new braiders offers noteworthy advances that help manufacturers meet new industry requirements.
The Speedmaster 150, equipped for braiding super fine wire, includes seven features that would have been considered optional several years ago. Today’s cables are smaller in diameter, more prone to elongation and deliver high electrical performance. The added features – Sound Enclosure, Variable Speed Drive, HMI, Automatic Lubrication, Empty Bobbin Detector, Longitudinal Taping Unit and Core Run-out sensor – make it easier to program and control the shielding process and reduce defects. In keeping up with the smaller reel sizes and cable tension control requirements, the Speedmaster is equipped with a (W6-355) wind-up mechanism with a driven shaft and rolling ring traverse.
The second machine, a B10-24 Maypole style braider, has an independently-driven capstan in lieu of change gears to vary the pitch. It will also be equipped with a driven wind-up mechanism for reels up to 14 inch flange diameter, which is rarely used on Maypole style units. These two features make the B10-24 an ideal test machine by combining versatility and low cost.
