Continuous Type Change Value Package for Rubber Cable Lines

Rubber cables are typically produced in short lengths. It means frequent type changes, long downtime periods and raised costs. Not any more. The well known Maillefer invention for XLPE cables, Continuous Type Change is now available also for rubber cables: several cable sizes can be produced without stopping the line.

How to serve your important customers profitably in short production lengths?

Reduce costs and nonproductive time, which have previously been unavoidable in short length production

With our Continuous Type Change technology, change times are reduced from 2 - 3 hours to 2 - 3 minutes. A good example of the CTC benefits is a medium voltage cable calculation. Based on an average of recent material price levels, type change costs without CTC can be up to EUR 3 500 per change and with CTC are only EUR 200. Thus for example, the monthly costs with three type changes per week without CTC can go up to EUR 42 000 compared to the very moderate costs of only EUR 2 400 with CTC.

What you get

Our Continuous Type Change Value Package increases line availability and saves significant amounts of conductor and rubber material.

  • Continuous Type Change enables you to change from one core to another without stopping the line and without depressurizing the tube
  • Changeover scrap is reduced to a few meters only
  • Manufacturing of short lengths by customer orders becomes profitable

Run Times Reach New Heights

26.2.2020

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

Astonishing Curing Calculation for Flexible Factory Joints

29.1.2020

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

Composite Pipe Production Doubled without trouble

22.1.2020

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

New in EHV cable production

13.1.2020

Two X-ray gauges are used in CV lines to measure thicknesses, concentricity & diameter during production of MV, HV and EHV cables. Now, the second gauge at the cold end (after end seal) is orientable to give a synchronized visual of measurements taken by the 1st gauge at the hot end. Read more
