SIKORA to Exhibit Innovative Measuring and Control Systems
At wire 2020 in Düsseldorf, from March 30 to April 3, 2020, SIKORA will present a broad portfolio of future-oriented measuring and control systems for an efficient and sustainable quality control for the wire and cable, optical fiber and plastics industries.
Numerous intelligent technologies, for example, for online measurement of wall thickness, eccentricity and the diameter of cables, confirm SIKORA’s claim to develop and provide innovative and sustainable measuring solutions for the global cable market. “Quality and sustainability are core elements of our business strategy and decisive for the business success of our customers,” explains Harry Prunk, member of the executive board of SIKORA AG. “For almost five decades, our measuring systems have contributed to quality control and a simultaneous reduction of plastic material during cable production. This saves costs and automatically preserves resources,” Prunk further said.
At wire, visitors can find out more about the performance of the measuring devices during extensive product demonstrations. One highlight is the X-ray measuring system X-RAY 6000 PRO that is used for the measurement of wall thickness, eccentricity, the diameter and ovality of cables with up to three different material layers, for example in insulating and jacketing lines. As a pioneer in X-ray measuring technology for cable extrusion, SIKORA has been setting trends for 30 years. The combination of the X-RAY 6000 PRO with the processor system ECOCONTROL 6000 allows for an automatic control of the wall thickness. By reducing the wall thickness by, for instance, 5%, not only raw material consumption is reduced, but there are also plastic material savings in the six-figure range achieved.
The quality of a cable starts with the pureness of the plastic pellets. Thus, SIKORA also offers online and offline inspection, sorting and analysis systems for plastic pellets. Visitors can bring their plastic pellets, which will be inspected and analyzed by the laboratory testing device PURITY CONCEPT V live on site. By using inspection and sorting systems, contamination can be excluded, breakdowns eliminated and material costs saved. Besides economic advantages, the environment can be preserved at the same time due to less waste.
With the premiere of the FIBER TENSION 6003, SIKORA widens its product family for quality control of optical fibers. The gauge head offers an extremely fast, reliable and precise tension measurement and control. Due to the high measuring rate of up to 10 kHz and the application of the birefringence principle, the stand-alone gauge head is particularly attractive for manufacturers of high-end solutions. The FIBER TENSION 6003 is predestined for optical fibers that are further processed into premium optical fiber cables. The FIBER TENSION 6003 can be used for hot as well as cold measurement of the bare fiber.
Turning ideas into innovations and product developments that achieve the highest quality, sustainability and cost effectiveness in the wire and cable as well as plastic industry is SIKORA’s claim. The company emphasizes this at wire with the “Solution Corner”. Customers are invited to personally discuss with SIKORA experts their ideas, visions and technical requirements on the systems for quality control for the future of measuring technology in a creative atmosphere. SIKORA’s presence at the wire 2020 promises pure quality, innovation and sustainability.

Enamel-Insulated Rectangular Wire for Electric Mobility
FUHR Rolling Mills will exhibit its products at wire Dusseldorf 2020.
Insulated copper wires are used in windings for electric motors, generators and transformers. The automotive industry’s entry into electric mobility has created new challenges for manufacturers of enameled wire.
In small/medium transformers, usually round wires are used. However, in large transformers (e.g. in power stations), enamel-insulated rectangular wires have been preferred since decades, because they significantly improve power density and efficiency.
The enamel-insulation rectangular wire is very thin with a layer thickness of 50 to 150 µm. The lacquer is applied in 10 to 20 layers, i.e. the individual layer might be just 5µm. Whilst the bare wire passes a lacquer bath and a calibration nozzle, spare lacquer is stripped off. Repeated passaging of a hot-air oven burns in the layer.
Due to the small layer thickness, the first calibration nozzle is only a few micrometers larger than the bare wire. If the wire does not have the correct dimensions, enamel coating might be either too thin or too thick and insulation faults occur, which then lead to failure of the winding during operation.
The production of high-precision enamelable rectangular copper wires is much more difficult than the production of round wire. If drawing dies are used, a significantly worse – because asymmetrical – lubricating film of the cooling fluid is formed compared to drawing round wires. At speeds above 60 m/min, the lubricant film begins to crack in the area of the edge radii. A failure of the drawing die is the consequence. When drawing round wires, much higher speeds of up to 3000 m/min are achieved due to the more beneficial lubrication conditions.
In addition to this speed restriction, another reason not to use profile drawing dies is the low degree of standardization in transformer construction. Nearly every project requires different wire dimensions, so that short-term procurement or stockpiling is a considerable logistical problem.
Furthermore, the speed of enameling lines for rectangular wires is significantly lower with maximum 25 m/min than that of round wire lines. Here, asymmetry is the main reason making uniform enameling difficult at higher speeds, too.
In order to achieve higher production speeds and a high degree of flexibility, rectangular copper wires for transformer construction are usually not produced in line with enameling lines, but are rolled, coiled and insulated in high-performance rolling mills in multi-core enameling lines. For this application, FUHR has been developing and selling rolling mills for many years, which meet the requirements of the transformer industry for precision, flexibility and productivity. These machines have been continuously optimized. Typical production speeds today range from 200 to 800 m/min, depending on the producible cross section. One rolling line supplies approx. 8 to 15 painting lines.
For a rolling mill, there are five rolling steps: two high mills and two round-rolling mills are responsible for the pre-profiling. The final calibration is carried out in FUHR’s WST-type, universal profile rolling mill.
Optimized production for electric mobility
The automotive industry relies on enamel-insulated rectangular wires and requires manufacturers to prove that no wire damage occurs before enameling. Even when using the best winding and unwinding systems, it cannot be guaranteed that the bare wire will be free of damage during offline production. This results in the task of inline production. However, a rolling line is not getting cheaper just because it is slower. Following that, the concept of a 5-stand rolling mill cannot be retained for inline profiling.
Other than in transformer construction, standardization in the automotive industry is exceedingly high. Typical plants manufacture the same product for months or years. Therefore, the use of profile drawing dies in this area is possible in a sensible way, even if technical developments should increase the possible lacquer speeds to up to 60 m/min in the future.
With the IPU320, FUHR has developed an economical inline profiling system with which the manufacturers of enameled wire can meet the high requirements of the automotive industry for quality and price. The IPU320 combines rolling and profile drawing processes, whereby large width to thickness ratios can also be achieved by driven rollers.
Besides a low price, one of the most important requirements during development was uninterrupted operation for months.
The IPU320 is equipped with a closed control system, which does not require an electrical interface to the paint spray line. The required space is kept at a minimal size with 2 meters. Therefore, retrofitting in existing paint spray lines usually is possible without having to adapt the existing system.
FUHR will exhibit an IPU320 and present the production of rectangular copper wires “live” at Wire 2020.
