At the 22nd
Tire Technology Expo from March 21-23, 2023, Saurer Twisting Solutions will showcase the innovative CableCorder CC5 for the production of high-quality tire cord.
The latest generation of the CableCorder is characterized by competitive advantages such as reduced energy consumption, a smart spindle concept for energy saving, modern quality control and improved ergonomics. It also has flexible automation and digitalization solutions and allows the integration of the CableCorder into Saurer Senses.
Saurer Technologies GmbH & Co. KG, Twisting Solutions, Krefeld/Germany, a member of the Saurer Group, has once again improved the patented energy-saving technology with new hardware and optimized software. The optimized thread balloon diameter and reduced spindle gauge on the CableCorder CC5 cut down space requirements and increase productivity. Online monitoring of the quality parameters ensures that the high demands on the tire cord are guaranteed at all times.
New machine components and an optimum yarn path enable a high operation comfort and process reliability. Intelligent automation solutions increase the efficiency of package transport thanks to the use of modern automated guided vehicle (AGV) technology. The loading of the machine, the removal of the completed take-up packages as well as the supply of the downstream creels are supported by automation technology. In addition to the basic CC5 version, the CableCorder is also available in the CC5-TFO version for production of yarns in the 2-for-1 twisting process and as the CC5-3PLY version for production of symmetrical and asymmetrical 3-ply tire cord.
The direct cabling machine for the production of symmetrical 3-ply tire cord as well as asymmetrical 2-ply and 3-ply hybrid twisted yarns has established itself very successfully in the market. Within a very short time after market launch, a large number of CC5-3PLY machines were delivered and commissioned in the world's tire cord markets. In addition, the CC5-3PLY serves replacement investments of ring twisting machines that are still used today for the production of 3-ply tire cord and hybrid yarns.
