Davis-Standard will feature its latest wire and cable technology during Wire Düsseldorf, April 4-8, 2016, in Hall 9, Booth A19. As the world’s largest international forum for the wire and cable industry, Wire 2016 is an excellent venue for Davis-Standard to promote a new line of traversing and collapsible take-ups and pay-offs as well as capstan and extruder technology.
Davis-Standard’s take-ups and pay-offs integrate simplified engineering and cost efficiency. With a smaller overall footprint and excellent operator ergonomics, these machines have been well received since their introduction in early 2015. Machine sizes range from 1,250mm to 5,000mm (48 to 195 inches) with the greatest concentration within the 1,800mm to 2,500mm (70 to 98 inches) size range. For international customers, machines are equipped with a Siemens AC drive, PLC and HMI with a Mitsubishi servo drive. For North American customers, machines feature a Yaskawa A-1000 AC drive and Allen-Bradley/Rockwell components that include a servo drive, PLC (programmable logic controller) and HMI (human machine interface). Technology is available as “stand-alone” (running in torque control) with a dancer or with an accumulator.
Davis-Standard has also seen ongoing demand for its caterpillar capstan and HPE extruder technology. Davis-Standard supplies multi-pass, linear and belt wrap capstans for the full range of wire and cable applications. The HPE offers a compact design and is one of the industry’s most widely used extruders. It is known for a fast delivery and rugged design that is energy efficient and easy to maintain. Advantages for wire and cable applications include increased torque capacity for high viscosity resins and custom options.
The ability to address market demand in terms of performance and cost efficiency is just one aspect of Davis-Standard’s Global Advantage™ in wire and cable. Another is Davis-Standard’s unmatched experience in supplying extruders and associated wire and cable equipment for more than 70 years. Applications include aerial cable, building wire, coaxial and composite cable, video pair cable, tray cable, CATV, THHN and THWN wire among others. For more information, visit www.davis-standard.com.
