Interwire 2015, Booth #264
April 28 – 30, 2015
Boockmann will present their still relatively new HELICORD®technology for wire and cable SURFACE PROCESSING and WELDING WIRE FINISHING, which during the past few years was implemented in industrial production lines. Especially successful applications are, amongst others, removal of misprints from cable, removal of metal particles from strands for high frequency and submarine cables, removal of drawing lubricants and metal particles before extrusion, and various cleaning and lubricating applications in special wire such as for food or medical use. The most promising application is Welding Wire Finishing with simultaneous coating and removal of particles. The latest development in cords allows direct transfer of active components to the wire, and thus eliminates the use of solvents previously required for extractive finishing.
The HELICORD® machine NB58W that will be displayed was designed specifically for these processes directly before the winder. A traversing process zone that can be connected to the traverse of the winder minimizes stress on the wire after the finishing process. An internal pump allows extractive application of various finishing materials, such as lubricants, corrosion inhibitors and arc stabilizers.
Boockmann‘s well-know HELILUB® technology for solvent-free lubrication of magnet wire is the most reliable method with respect to process stability, especially on high speed machines and wire intended for end use in hermetic compressor motors.
As a novelty, Boockmann now offers a multi-wire cleaning machine, which will also be presented at Interwire.
