Our Electromagnetic Brake 500 ensures stable wire tension during production runs, including ramps up and down. Stable wire tension eliminates elongation risk and keeps resistance of your wire within the limits.
The brake is a unit that gives the wire constant, adjustable tension and is typically used between a flyer pay-off and the line. The brake can be used for a wide range of conductors, such as solid, stranded and bunched copper conductors, as well as insulated wires.
It comprises an integrated steel frame and cover, a transparent door, one braking pulley and a deviating pulley. The braking pulley is coupled to a magnetic powder brake which gives the adjustable braking force. The friction needed between the braking pulley and the wire is accomplished by a pressure belt. The machine also includes a latch-type wire break detector.
The brake includes a control box with the necessary electrical components for controlling the brake.

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
