Nov 2015 – SKET supplies German wire rope manufacturers with double twist bunching technology

DSCN0463During recent weeks, SKET Verseilmaschinenbau Gmbh has supplied two leading German wire rope manufacturers with double twist bunching machines. One of these customers was supplied with a machine type MSDN 630, the most popular machine in this range and particularly suitable for the manufacture of steel strand for elevator ropes and automotive ropes, and the other with a machine type MSDN 1000 for the manufacture of heavy duty steel strands in various constructions. Since being delivered, both machines have been taken into full production and they are now producing steel wire strand in the diameter range 5.0 to 10.0 mm in continuous shift production. Benefiting from the large pay-off bobbins used, having a flange diameter of up to 800 mm and the use of pay-off coils, which both ensure long unbroken machine running times, these machines operate with a very high degree of operational efficiency.Double twist bunching machines are of ever increasing importance for the production of strand in wire rope factories worldwide and have become indispensable for the economic manufacture of elevator ropes, rope for the automobile industry and ropes for use in the manufacture of conveyor belts.

SKET double twist bunching machines form an important part of the SKET Verseilmaschinenbau GmbH manufacturing range and are used throughout the world.
