Future-oriented quality control in CV, insulating and sheathing lines for more than 30 years

Since 1990, SIKORA has been supporting wire and cable manufacturers with systems based on X-ray technology for quality control during extrusion. For years, the X-RAY 8000 has been the industrial standard for non-contact measurement of the wall thickness, concentricity, ovality and diameter of cables in CV lines. Nevertheless, SIKORA does not stand still in terms of technological innovations and therefore, has been offering the X-RAY 8000 ADVANCED for this application area since 2018. Equipped with 16 measuring sensors, the system allows a measurement up to 10 times faster than the X-RAY 8000 NXT and an immediate control. In insulating and sheathing lines, the X-RAY 6000 PRO is used. It provides measuring values of the wall thickness, concentricity, diameter and ovality.

In addition to decades of experience, the performance and variety of SIKORA equipment for X-ray technology speak for themselves. X-ray technology enables the measurement of up to three different material layers and can be used for diameters from 0.65 – 270 mm (.026 – 10.6″).

Noteworthy are the technical structure and the sophisticated design of the equipment, which is precisely adapted to the requirements of the extrusion lines in close cooperation with customers and business partners. SIKORA thus guarantees that the measuring systems can be easily integrated into all existing as well as new production lines.

With SIKORA you have the advantages of a comprehensive sales and service network with 14 offices worldwide with expertise in X-ray technology at your disposal. Our international employees advise customers in all wire and cable industries and, thanks to years of personal experience and detailed documentation around production lines worldwide, always have a future-oriented solution for your specific requirements.
