Bartell Machinery Systems, a leader in advanced industrial manufacturing equipment, is excited to announce the release of its new Single Twist Strander machine, capable of producing large industrial electrical transmission cable for the power utility industry. The Single Twist Strander strands cable power distribution lines. It can accommodate cable sizes up to 400mm² (IEC) or 700 MCM. The machine spans 78’L, 20’W and 17’H.
Machine parameters are digitally monitored and controlled via a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and a menu driven touch screen so that at each stage the operator is guided to obtain the desired machine operation. At its peak the machine is rotating at 200RPM.
Bartell Machinery owns unique roll-forming technology that shapes and preforms wire during the manufacturing process. This advanced technology significantly improves the electrical transmission properties (efficiency) of the cable, thereby reducing the overall material required for the finished product. The first machine is scheduled to ship in August 2015 from Rome, NY to China.
