“Trend to highest quality”

Holger Lieder, Sales Director at SIKORA AG, gives an outlook to SIKORA’s participation at the Wire & Cable India and identifies future trends in the cable industry

At the Wire & Cable India, we will showcase innovative measuring, control, inspection and sorting technology that support our customers to increase the quality of their products. Among others we will present technologies for the automotive and energy cable as well as the optical fiber market. The PURITY SCANNER will be a highlight in technology for the high voltage and subsea cable area. The system is the outcome of a co-development with the company Maillefer and is used for the inspection and sorting of XLPE pellets. The device detects and sorts contaminated pellets, so that only clean pellets are used for the extrusion process. The PURITY SCANNER is an innovative concept, which acknowledges the trend for highest quality.

Another focus will be our latest conductor preheater, the PREHEATER 6000 TC, which was developed specifically for quality control of automotive and data cables. The system preheats the wire by means of inductive heating to the nominal value. At the same time, a control module controls and regulates the power of the device with high precision, to ensure that the conductor always stays at the preset temperature. The precise preheating of the conductor is the basis for high-quality cable production.

I expect great potential for the optical fiber market especially in India and China. In 2012, SIKORA has successfully launched a series for measuring and control technologies for the use in the drawing tower. The series comprises devices for diameter measurement of the uncoated and coated optical fiber. Depending on the position of the devices in the drawing tower, this series is giving information about the position, vibration frequency, tension and spinning of the optical fiber. Visitors of our booth can already look forward to our new FIBER LASER 6003 AIRLINE that detects airlines in the optical fiber, as well as to our new devices for measuring the temperature of the optical fiber and for lump detection. We always develop new technologies in close cooperation with our customers in order to realize performance standards optimally. We have, for instance, realized successfully our new lump detector FIBER LUMP 6003 MICRO with 6-axis and can now detect non-conformities to 100% on the optical fiber surface from a size of 5μm. Furthermore, we are noticing a positive trend in the optical fiber market in Europe and the USA. Copper cables are being exchanged more and more for optical fibers, in order to meet the increasing demand for data transfer. A long distance data transfer without losses requires optical fiber of the highest quality, which must be ensured already during production. SIKORA, with its innovative technical solutions for various appliances, is a reliable partner for quality control. Additionally, with the always available, worldwide service network, customers are excellently positioned for the future with SIKORA.
