Maschinenfabrik Niehoff and Niehoff of India (NoI), its Indian subsidiary, will display at the Wire & Cable India 2016 trade show, booth E 02, a 16 wire multiwire drawing line type MMH 121 + RM 201 made by NoI and a pairing machine type DSI 631 for data cables with backtwist pay-off type ARD 630 D.

Niehoff partner companies August Strecker, Germany (wire welding machines), Zeller + Gmelin, Germany (drawing lubricants) and H. Folke Sandelin AB (HFSAB), Sweden (horizontal lead extrusion and cable stripping, repair and recovery equipment) will also be in attendance at the Niehoff booth to introduce visitors to their products and services.

The multiwire drawing machine MMH 121 built by NoI under Niehoff licence is designed to draw simultaneously 16 wires in one level for a diameter range from 0.20 mm up to 1.05 mm. The MMH 121 is combined with an inline annealer type RM 201 and can work with a speed of up to 35 m/s. The MMH 121 is best suited for the production of electronic wires as well as for building wires. As the MMH machines are based on a modular principle, they can be built ideally adapted to the specific tasks of customers. The wires drawn on these machines exceed the most demanding specifications and processing requirements as far as physical properties and can be processed to multiwire bundles with outstanding characteristics. Up to now, more than 1,500 MMH lines are in operation world-wide.

The DSI 631 type double-twist stranding machine combined with an upstream backtwist pay-off type ARD 630 D has been designed for the stranding of insulated conductors into pairs and quads and the stranding of four conductor pairs into LAN cables. The machine is able to manufacture reliably LAN cables of all categories – even of future generations – as well as pairs with tape shielding, bus cables and other telecommunications cables.

The DSI stranding machines system includes a lot of additional auxiliary equipment, so that customer-specific production lines can be created and rapidly rebuilt depending on the order situation. Compared with other machines and process technologies, the combination possibilities of the DSI system generate significant financial advantages for the manufacture of certain products or a certain production performance.
