SHOW NEWS: Saurer introduces new cabling technology

At this year’s Tire Technology Expo, visitors will have the opportunity to learn more about Saurer’s Allma TechnoCorder TC2, a machine for tire cord production featuring the latest cord twisting and cabling processes.

The high-performance two-for-one twisting machine has been optimized in several ways for the production of tire cord. Visitors will be shown the multi-stage twisting process of hybrid yarns for the carcass and cap ply as well as the production of chafer material.

Further innovative developments in the Allma CableCorder incorporate the production of balanced three-ply tire cord and provide the ability to produce hybrid yarns both in the two-for-one and cabling process.

The Allma CableCorder CC4 with patented energy-saving technology is said to be extremely efficient. The cabling machine enables cost savings of up to 50% and reduces the number of yarn breaks by up to 50%. Furthermore, it has a low noise emission and is easy to handle.

Visit the Saurer team at booth 4016 at Tire Technology Expo 2018 in Hannover, Germany, on February 20-22.
