Are you looking for minimum operation costs? Our applications for MV, HV and EHV cable production meet the tightest demands for quality and performance.
By utilizing reliable line components and avoiding pre-cross-linking in the extrusion process, you can achieve long cable production lengths. It is particularly true in subsea cable production, where minimizing the number of joints is essential.
Optimal roundness is essential for efficient use of insulation material on a CV line. Cutting down material overuse is one of the biggest contributors to production productivity in pre-molded and pre-fabricated joints and terminations as well.
The cooling circulation of nitrogen shrinks the outer surface of the insulation, thereby forcing the insulated core into its round shape. This process enables a catenary line with moderate rotation to produce cables with thick walls.
It is possible to produce several medium voltage cores in the same run without stopping the continuous vulcanization line. This significantly reduces overall downtime, especially if the production contains frequent type changes. Continuous Type Change Value Package, which you can upgrade to without heavy investment, is an effective means to improve productivity.
Typical preheaters ineffectively heat conductors, causing the inner semicon material to penetrate the outermost wires. In a worst case scenario, the conductors can then no longer pass through the wire guide of the crosshead. Our Dual Preheating System uses two coils to effectively heat the entire conductor.
High and extra high voltage cables have important insulation thicknesses, and considerable insulation weight is supported by a small conductor. If the viscosity of the material close to the conductor decreases, as is the case when the temperature increases rapidly, significant drooping occurs and the insulation will be off-centered. In addition to eliminating the drooping effect, our patented method increases heating and cross-linking capacity, and thus line speeds, in catenary continuous vulcanizing lines for medium, high and extra high voltage cable production.
Our Quick Conductor Splicing Value Package allows quick conductor splicing for compact round stranded medium voltage (MV) conductors up to 800 mm².

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
