Wire & Cable India

Wire and Cable Industry’s Focus Shifts to Southeast Asian Market This Fall

Riding the wave of opportunity, wire Southeast Asia 2019 returns to the Bangkok Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC), Thailand from 18 – 20 September.

Returning to Bangkok in September 2019, wire Southeast Asia – driven by the global expertise of wire Düsseldorf, marks its 13th edition as the most authoritative trade event for the wire and cable industries in the region. The wire Southeast Asia will be held at the Bangkok Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC), Thailand from 18 – 20 September, 2019.

Held biennially with Tube Southeast Asia, the synergistic trade fairs will be ground to the global expertise by over 400 leading wire, cable, tube and pipe exhibitors from around the world. Some 9,000 trade visitors are expected to visit – reaffirming wire Southeast Asia’s status as an important platform for the industry’s latest developments and an arena for face-to-face meetings in forging business linkages and partnerships.

Cities all over Southeast Asia are on a growth trajectory, as industry projections indicate about 100 million people in ASEAN are expected to migrate from the countryside to cities from now through to 2030. From an economic standpoint – urbanization which generally brings about improved productivity, better incomes, education, healthcare and transport, also comes with its own set of challenges. Hence the need for ‘smart cities’, where information and communications technologies are integrated to improve operations across traffic flows, public transportation, energy and water usage and even healthcare services. In the case of Thailand, the country plans to transform its economy into a digitally powered ecosystem – creating no less than 100 “smart cities” over the next two decades.

The set-up of the ASEAN Smart City Network (ASCN) to support urbanization will serve as a common platform for each of the region’s countries to share best practices, link member cities with private investment and secure funding. The effect of ASCN was seen in March this year, where the Australian government pledged USD 30.3 million into ASEAN smart cities. While in June last year, the World Bank and the Swiss government established around USD 13.4 million ‘Indonesia Sustainable Urbanization Multi-Donor Trust Fund’, to ensure the country’s urbanization process is economically, socially and environmentally sustainable.

In tandem, Southeast-Asian nations are expected to spend USD 323 billion on infrastructure developments, from clear water, clean air, energy, roads, ports, railways, to education and healthcare – promising business prospects for the region’s construction companies. In Thailand, its government has pledged 1.5 trillion baht (USD 62 billion) over the next five years to boost growth and develop its three eastern provinces as the Eastern Economic Corridor, with infrastructure spending to remain a key driver for the economy and new development projects.

These market opportunities led by rapid urbanization coupled with Southeast Asia’s booming infrastructure developments will undoubtedly trigger higher demand for wire and cable and thanks to its versatility and rising application across a myriad of industries, from upstream, to midstream and downstream. Likewise, its use in end-use industries from automotive, household appliances to consumer electronics will further bolster demand.

Against these robust industry outlook and trends, wire Southeast Asia 2019’s timely staging provides companies the opportunity to step up on the main stage of the industry. In making a foray into the emerging Southeast Asian markets, and specifically Thailand, businesses will get to present new products, meet decision makers, discover new opportunities and build strong and reliable partnerships through their participation at the trade fairs.

Reflecting the established credentials of the world’s leading trade fair, wire Düsseldorf – the International Wire and Cable Fair –and supported by prominent industry partners, wire Southeast Asia 2019, into its 13th edition, will simultaneously present an all-encompassing range of innovative machinery in wire, cable, processing and finishing, new processes in measuring, control and test engineering and specialist areas, as well as new and upgraded tools and auxiliary materials. The specialist trade fair with visitor profile that includes manufacturers, suppliers and buyers from the wire, tube, iron and steel, automotive, chemical, building and construction, energy and electrical industries, will be augmented by a series of industry-focused conferences and seminars.

Technology Centre

The Technology Center offers the opportunity to demonstrate the performance of a complete cable production line. Trials are possible on these lines as well.

Jacketing, Forming & Welding

Jacketing lines for MV & HV cables require a high output and high precision of the jacket itself. High quality and valuable cables for MV / HV application, with diameters of over 150 mm, require high material throughputs of 1000 – 1400 kg/h to achieve better performance. Larger tolerances on the outside diameter and/or wall thickness can very quickly generate much higher material costs. Rosendahl Nextrom offers stable extrusion output over the whole range of operation, which results in lower production costs while at the same time achieving higher performance.

In the past, HV cables were protected by a lead jacket. This cable design has now changed to aluminum jacketing, which makes production safer for all the employees and the cable more reliable.

Rosendahl Nextrom has also acquired the technology for seam-welded smooth and corrugated metal tape sheathing systems from Weber & Scher Mfg. Co., Inc. by means of an intellectual property agreement, strengthening its position in this product segment.

Siebe Engineering to Present its Extrusion Technology

The company will also discuss about the bypass control system that enables a line operator to start up a physically foamed cable in an ideal working point.

In the production process of physically foamed data and high-frequency cables, the reduction of start-up scrap is a key point for production efficiency, cost-saving measures and sustainability strategy.

Siebe Engineering, together with Erocarb SA, put effort into the development of an intelligent bypass control system that enables a line operator to start up a physically foamed cable in an ideal working point. In this way, the scrap length of a foamed cable can be reduced at each start-up by nearly a factor of ten, which shows the potential of this bypass control system in terms of process optimization and cost savings.

In general, the concept of the intelligent bypass control system is mainly based on a sophisticated mechanical device that is driven by an electric motor. With this technical approach, every melt pressure value can be adjusted exactly within the extruder barrel. No polymer melt is pressed through the extrusion crosshead and so, at start-up of a product, the extrusion process parameters are already in a steady state. The bypass control system was designed as a stand-alone module that is equipped with its own CPU and a touch panel for user interactions. This means that the described intelligent bypass control system can easily be integrated in the main control system of a cable production line. Only the “old” bypass has to be replaced. A retrofi t can also be carried out with integration into the main control system.
