Most large-scale cable and umbilical manufacturing processes involve binding and/or taping at different stages of the manufacturing and assembly processes.
Meltech’s range of taping and binding machines integrate seamlessly into our customers’ cable and extrusion lines and offer taping and binding across the full spectrum of products including electrical cable from 60mm and smaller through to umbilicals of 400mm diameter or larger. Our equipment can tape/bind using a wide range of media including polyester, mylar, fibreglass and aluminium and in both concentric and eccentric configurations.
Meltech’s binding machines are often placed in umbilical manufacture as a precursor to the cable bundle being sheathed with XLPE or other customer-specified coverings.
