The PURITY SCANNER is an innovative system for online inspection and sorting of plastic pellets that are used for the insulation of MV, HV and EHV cables as well as onshore and offshore cables.
The X-RAY 8000 ADVANCED is equipped with 16 measuring sensors and measures the diameter, wall thickness and eccentricity of MV, HV and EHV cables in CV lines by a factor of up to 10 faster than the XRAY 8000 NXT.
The PREHEATER 6000 TC is a conductor preheater with innovative temperature measurement and control.

At wire South America, from October 1 to 3, 2019, SIKORA will showcase innovative measuring, control, inspection, sorting and analysis technologies. They contribute to the highest product quality, process optimization and cost saving in the wire and cable, optical fiber and plastics industries.
The newly launched X-RAY 8000 ADVANCED will be a highlight at the SIKORA booth. With the X-ray based system, SIKORA introduces state-of-the-art High-Speed- Technology (HST) that is tailored to the demands of MV, HV and EHV cable production. It represents an advanced alternative to the successful and proven X-RAY 8000 NXT. The system is equipped with 16 measuring sensors and measures the diameter, wall thickness and eccentricity of cables in CV lines up to 10 times faster than the X-RAY 8000 NXT, and thus, is predestined for an even more efficient control and information transparency in terms of Industry 4.0.
Another attraction at wire Russia will be the PREHEATER 6000 TC (Temperature Controlled), an intelligent solution for precise preheating of the conductor to the nominal temperature. A reliable conductor preheating during the production of high-quality cables, especially for automotive and data cables, is essential to ensure an optimal adhesion of the insulation on the conductor respectively a controlled foaming.
SIKORA will also present its wide range of measuring systems for quality control of optical fibers at different positions in the drawing tower. There will be systems shown for the measurement of the diameter and the position of the naked and coated fiber as well as for the determination of the tension and detection of airlines. Furthermore, gauge heads are displayed for the measurement of the fiber temperature. They are installed at the hot position of the drawing process, to determine the fiber temperature for the control of the furnace, and at the cold end, to exactly dose the Helium used for the cooling. In addition, a gauge head for the determination of the concentricity of the coating as well as for the detection of lumps on the surface of the coated fiber is exhibited.
