The Meltech Company will be showcasing its design engineering capabilities at Wire 2016, with its Strongform™ Continuous Rotary Extrusion (CRE) innovation taking centre stage.
For visitors involved in processing of Aluminium or Copper for applications such as refrigeration and air conditioning tubes or for electrical bus bars, power cables and trolley wire, the Meltech stand will be an important stop-off point at the show.
Strongform™ re-thinks the conventional CRE machine with a unique, fully visible cantilevered extrusion wheel and a substantially more robust machine configuration. For non-ferrous metal processors, Meltech’s technology offers transformational productivity improvements with its exceptional process control, output efficiency and minimal wastage.
Meltech’s General Manager, John Stamp said: “Strongform™ is a real game-changer in CRE processing. Machine set-up times have gone from hours down to just minutes and downtime for maintenance and tool changes is reduced by as much as 90%. The incorporation of a new heat recovery process that allows waste energy to be recovered is also yielding energy savings of around 30%.”
Visitors to the Meltech stand (Hall 16/Stand F49) will also learn more about the company’s ongoing innovation in CRE capabilities, including its advancement of process applications for alloys such as Brass and Bronze and high value metals such as Sliver, Gold, Titanium and Zinc.
Other CRE developments on show will include the technology’s versatility to convert non-ferrous metal powder, granulate and even scrap metal into new profile or rod materials.
Supporting its CRE innovation, Meltech will also be welcoming Wire and Cable industry visitors to learn more about their precision coiling and high performance cable handling machinery. With capabilities ranging from equipment for winding of 0.1 mm diameter medical wire to cable handling of 400mm sub-sea umbilicals, Meltech will be on-hand to discuss its full portfolio of engineered solutions in this field.
For the Wire Drawing industry, Meltech’s world-renowned range of strand annealing furnaces and de-gassing ovens will also be featured for visitors involved in supplying wire and strip for aerospace, automotive, spring making and surgical applications.
