Overview Solutions



Up to 8 sensors may be connected for dimensions as well as additional sensors for faults, events, line speed, etc. It is also possible to connect KW - lump and neckdown detectors, spark testers and a length detector.

In the JACKETMASTER configurations for core or jacket extrusion, the USYS IPC processes the diameter values from 1 to 4 ODAC® laser measuring heads. Furthermore, an inductive ODEX® instrument is often connected to measure the eccentricity.


"Hot - Cold" Control

ZUMBACH® system with one measuring head each at the beginning and at the end of the cooling trough use SIGMA-EXPERT control software in order to compensate automatically for the shrinkage from "hot" to "cold" diameter. This function can be used individually or in combination with diameter and capacitance sensors for compensation of the "hot-cold" variations (control of expansion).

SIGMA-EXPERT Controller and CpK-Pilot

Intelligent, self-adapting system for dynamic control. With CpK-Pilot the target value will automatically be optimized to be set at the lower specification limit, resulting from statistical computations. This translates into material savings.

Typical sensors for JACKETMASTER systems:

ODAC® for diameter

ODEX® for eccentricity

KW for lump and neckdown

CAPAC® for capacitance

SPARK TESTER for cable insulations
