- Hi Peter,
thanks a lot for your prompt reply.
Regarding the single cable that we're trying to laying up in a 1250 double twist buncher, the single cable is a class 2 stranded copper conductor 16 sqmm not compacted, single layer insulated XLPE for LV application. The lay-length is bigger than 400mm. Pulleys have large diameter (bigger than 400mm) and we're using 4 single motorized pay-off with dancer.
The main problem regards that in the assembled cable we've some damage in the insulation discovering the conductor. I think that the problem could be in the bow (with carbide eyelet)
What do you think ?
Thanks again to all for the help
- Trying to cabling 4x XLPE Cables with a double twist buncher, we're facing problems and difficulties. We expected a behaviour similar to PVC, where we do not have any particularly problems using bows with eyelet, but it is not so.
The single cable is unwind with a motorized pay-off and a dancer.
Any suggestion ? Lubrication ? Bows with roller or eyelet ?
Thanks in advance for any help.
- Hi Peter, thanks for your reply.
I've searched some info on internet, but I didn't find any particularly info apart general info about characteristics of zinc etc.
I will share all info I'll get in next weeks with all of you.
- Hello everybody !!
For wiredrawing zinc wire (EN-ISO 14919, inlet dia.4-4,5mm, min.outlet dia.1,2-1,6mm) which is the best elongation for the die sequence ? I was thinking that an elongation 19-21% could be ok in a fully submerged machine.
What do you think ? Any suggestion ?
