SIKORA’s X-RAY 6000 PRO ensures perfect quality of cables with HFFR compounds

Cables installed in public buildings and means of transport today are subject to strict fire protection regulations worldwide. Therefore, the requirements for the cable production are increasing. The combination of the measuring system X-RAY 6000 PRO with the display and control device ECOCONTROL 6000 by SIKORA ensures highest cable quality in sheathing lines. At the same time, the X-RAY 6000 PRO supports power cable manufacturers to make their production more sustainable and economical by saving insulation materials.

Fire protection nowadays plays a central role in cable production. For example, the EU Construction Products Regulation (CPR) stipulates that the insulation materials of installed cables must consist of HFFR compounds (Halogen Free, Flame Retardant). These are characterized by a high proportion of inorganic flame retardant, which results in a higher fire protection. SIKORA’s X-ray based X-RAY 6000 PRO measures the outer diameter, the eccentricity, the ovality as well as the average and minimum wall thickness of up to three different material layers during the coating process.

All measured values are available immediately after line start-up and are visualized on the 22″ display of the ECOCONTROL 6000 display and control unit. The data obtained can be used for immediate control of the production process. As a result, less start-up scrap is produced and the good production is significantly increased. Furthermore, the automatic control of the wall thickness to the minimum value by changing the line speed or extruder rpm leads to a significant increase in efficiency with simultaneous material and cost savings.
