Last month saw the successful conclusion of a large contract for stranding machinery for the production of steel wire rope by SKET Verseilmaschinenbau GmbH. SKET will be supplying the key machines for the setting up of a brand new production unit. Among others, these machines include:
- high-speed tubular closing machine Type SRW 1+18×630, fitted with a “bull nose”, for the closing of ropes having a diameter up to 48 mm
- high-speed tubular closing machine Type SRN 1+6×1250 for the closing of ropes up to 70 mm in diameter
- high-speed tubular stranding machine Type SRW 1+48×630 for the production of strand up to 29 mm in diameter
- cage-type closing machine Type MKVS 1+8×1600 for the closing of ropes having a diameter up to 90 mm.
The design and project planning of the machines covered by this project is being carried out in close cooperation with the buyer in order to ensure that the special needs and technical requirements of the customer are taken fully into account. The delivery of the equipment is scheduled to take place in stages during the second half of 2016.
With the receipt of this contract for machines of this type which, in terms of their size, make this far from an everyday event, SKET has again been able to further cement and confirm its market position as a reliable supplier, particularly in the realm of large projects.
