Our automatic dual take-ups are known for high reel change-over reliability in any application at top line speeds. The dual take-ups are designed to work independently from line controls, therefore providing an easy adaptation and a fast plug & play installation to any line.
The Automatic Dual Take-up EKP 1300 is designed to serve versatile applications in building, installation and special wire and cable extrusion lines.
Thanks to high modularity the EKP 1300 is available in different performance and automation levels according to the customer's production requirements. Lay-out flexibility and upgradeability enable later-on modifications of the machine and adaptation to production changes.
Downtime and the need for maintenance are minimized through a careful choice of components and the use of up-to-date technology. Self-diagnostics of the EKP 1300 enables a quick troubleshooting. Additionally, an easy access to service points together with the overall ergonomics and safety features create the best working conditions for the operator.
The take-up is designed to work independently from line controls, providing an easy adaptation to any line as a result. A higher automation level of the line can be reached by integrating it into line control by signals.
To guarantee a fast start-up, the machine is delivered with tested interconnection cables. It passes a thorough testing with wire in full speed and also with customer reels, if available six weeks prior to shipment.

One of the new trends in power cable manufacturing is the rise of PP (polypropylene) based thermoplastic materials for the medium voltage application. Currently, these cables are predominantly XLPE and rubber, but now advances in material development make it possible to also consider thermoplastics. Read more
The performance of extruded high voltage XLPE insulated cables is improvable by reducing the degassing burden and realizing longer extrusion run times. Development towards those goals was rendered possible after years of close technical collaboration with material suppliers and cable manufacturers. Read more
Solutions in Artificial Intelligence are developing rapidly and have invested our product portfolio. We employ the latest AI technology to help our customers create value from their data. The core of AI lies in automated information extraction. Read more
As the biggest plastics event took place in Germany, the question of where we stand in terms of sustainability has grown in importance. Where to begin? Maillefer looked at different functions within its organization and surprisingly realized that certain progress has been made. Read more
Flexible vulcanized joints (FVJ) also known as flexible factory joints are typically used in extending delivery lengths of extruded subsea cables. Lengths of XLPE insulated cable core are often limited by the capacity of extrusion, degassing or basket lay-up. Factory joints overcome these constraints. Read more

Since two decades, Maillefer has been providing production systems for manufacturing multi-layer composite pipe with diameters ranging from 14 to 32 mm and from 16 to 63 mm. Today, our two model lines, the PCL32 and PCL63 that cover the two size ranges have evolved much. We are closer to 60 m/min, which first presented serious challenges to polymer and aluminum tape suppliers. Read more
