Sibkabel JSC (part of the Cable Alliance Holding, which unites the cable assets of UMMC) has acquired two high-precision measuring devices that monitor the uniform application of insulation and sheathing on a conductive core (TPG). This will improve the efficiency of the product quality control system and eliminate rejects. Measuring equipment with a total cost of about 4 million rubles is installed on the extrusion lines of workshops No. 3 and No. 40, where products for the oil industry and rolling stock are manufactured. The devices monitor in real time the process of applying insulation to the TPG, displaying the image of the cable cut on the display. “The machines can measure the diameters of insulation and sheath from 0.5 to 25 mm with an accuracy of 1.0 µm. Measurements are made along 4 axes and 8 points, which ensures uniformity of the materials overlay. Upon detecting the slightest deviation, the operator immediately adjusts the mode, avoiding rejects. The most important characteristics of the cable, including fire safety, resistance to high temperatures, aggressive environments and other negative influences, depend on the correctness of the technological process ", - explained the head of the laboratory of measuring technology Oleg Ozerets. Modern devices provide high accuracy of non-contact measurements at high speeds of applying insulation and sheath 500 m /min). Other advantages include convenient function setting via an additional display and automatic meter adjustment when line speed changes. “We supply products for strategically important industries with their own quality management systems, which we have successfully passed certification. The control system for technological processes at the plant is constantly being improved, which allows us to supply customers with high-quality, reliable products in the shortest possible time, "said Alexey Zhuzhin, director of Sibkabel JSC.
