“Digital Assistant+” and wire processing innovations

June 2019 — Main article of the last issue “Niehoff Magazine” – customer magazine of Maschinenfabrik Niehoff – deals with some results of a pilot project related to the application of the Niehoff "Digital Assistant+". 

At the past trade fairs Interwire and wire Russia had shown by Maschinenfabrik Niehoff the new "MSM 83" type rod breakdown machine and the new "D 1252" type double twist stranding machine. The MSM 83 complements Niehoff’s "MSM 86" for applications where small foot prints are required including replacement of existing machines and inline operation with extruders and platers. The machine is extremely short with a length of only 4.5m because the drawing capstans are placed on two levels. The D 1252 was designed to excel for stranding and compacting (round and sector) class 2 conductors for energy cables up to 19 wires with a cross-section of up to 120mm². The machine joins Niehoff’s "D" series, which will include three large double twist stranders for spool sizes 1,250mm, 1,600mm and 2,000mm, as well as rigid stranders. The mentioned machines are described in the magazine as well as the new continuous resistance annealer type “RA 502” for rod breakdown machines which is able to anneal reliably up to 2.3t of aluminium wire per hour, over 20% more than the previous model could treat.
