WTM has been manufacturing equipment for the wire and cable Industry for almost 30 years, exporting highly performing machines for producing special cables all over the world. WTM customers are the main leaders in the production of high performance cables for aeronautical and aerospace applications, satellite systems, data cables, cloud information technology and high frequency cables, automotive and industrial communicating cables.
During next WIRE CHINA 2018, which will be held in Shanghai from 26th to 29th September, WTM wants to focus the attention on the production process for AERONAUTIC and DATA CABLES.
Over the years, WTM has developed specific solutions that meet the requirements of high-tech products such as cables for the aeronautic and aerospace industries. Thanks to the dynamic electronic dancer, WTM wrapping heads are able to run at a high speed, maintaining the consistency of the taping pitch with a very accurate tension control, which is a must in this type of application.
For DATA CABLES, especially twinaxial and coaxial type, WTM screening and sealing machines provide the most consistent production which reaches high standards, up to 25-50 GHz and more.
The realisation of these specific and high-tech cables can be supervised by the Visio System®, created by WTM for in-line visual inspection. Through high-speed industrial cameras placed after the taping process, the system elaborates in real time the frames collected and gives accurate indications about the cable geometry and surface quality.
The software calculates, displays and trends the taping pitch for each revolution of the cable wrapping head, and gives an immediate feedback to the operator and, in some cases, to the machine control itself.
Moreover, WTM Visio System® is able to collect data from other dimensional measuring instruments (laser gauges, capacitance unit, spark tester, etc.), and it is provided with software for SPC (Statistical Process Control) indexes such as CP, Cpk, standard deviation, etc.
For discovering more about these advanced solutions, WTM staff will wait for you all at the stand W1A16 in the Italian Pavilion at WIRE CHINA 2018, for finding the best solution to any production requirement.
