Our Line Control Autocure 4.1 ensures optimum capacity and high dilectric strength with minimum production cost.
Our Line Control Autocure 4.1S (slimline) provides control of the line, monitoring of the machines, production follow-up and a user friendly operator interface. It also enables productio enhancments and ensures production reliability of the line as well as the quality of the final product.
The line control consists of a Line Control Unit (LCU) with a fail safe Siemens PLC, an industrial field bus for controlling distributed I/O and drives, a user friendly movable control panel with a Siemens touch panel. The software contains all logical sequences and calculations for performing.
The process sequence control function is an important benefit which ensures high cable quality during ramps maximizing the amount of quality cable from the start to finish of the process and reducing the need for operator supervision. To initiate a process sequence, the operator only has to click the corresponding button, the alternatives being START (slow speed), PROD (production speed), SLOW (e.g. for reel change), and END (automatic after curing and cooling).
Synchronisation of all machines
When a sequence has been selected, the control automatically synchronizes the line speed and the curing tube temperature to be suitable for that particular phase of the process. The line control also takes care of the extruder and tube heating temperature, as well as the logics and interlocking of machines, valves, pumps, and the system diagnostic of hardware modules and bus nodes.
The user friendly man-machine interface is implemented with a Siemens touch panel. The main features of the operator interface include simple process monitoring with measurements, state displays, setvalue and command handling, basic alarm handling showing active alarms with clear texts, and a basic recipe system whcih enables production parameters to be saved and recalled when required. Note: our NCC/NCS calculations can not be automatically linked to the Siemens touch panel recipe handling.
Maillefer has a complete program of extrusion heads which fulfils the needs for pipe & tube manufacturing. Typically proposed in our line offerings, as well as for performance upgrades and component replacements. The TL and ELH longitudinal heads, and the VLCH and ECH crossheads form the four families that cover pipe & tube applications. They respond to a variety of design requirements like single layer or multi-layer, stripe or skin options, co-extrusion or tandem processes, countless adhesives, polymers and elastomers, and special connections and tooling configurations.

The 100th multi-layer PAL line is going to Chinaust and in particular to their facilities in Changchun in northeast China. Factory Acceptance Tests took place during the last days of June 2019 in the presence of a four person delegation led by Li Hongjie, General Manager of Changchun Chinaust. Not only was it the occasion to mark a successful acceptance by the customer, but also to highlight the delivery of the 100th multi-layer automotive tube extrusion line. Indeed, representatives from both companies began plans for celebrating Chinese style once the line ready for production. Read more

Maillefer has recently acquired a Cable Checker unit for our new R&D lab. The unit is essentially a microscope connected to a hot oil bath for high resolution analysis of all parts of the cable. This equipment is particularly suited for inspection of extruded XLPE (cross-linkable polyethylene) insulated Medium, High and/or Extra-High Voltage cable samples. Both trouble shooting and quality control inspection are done with very high accuracy. Read more
