New Smooth SheathEx™ Technology
BWE’s SheathEx™ technology was first developed in 2005. The process is now the preferred method for ‘seamless’ aluminum sheathing of High Voltage Cables.
Until now, all machines supplied globally have been for a corrugated aluminium sheath. This is a well proven and reliable process from 2 x 12.0mm diameter aluminium rods.
BWE are now pleased to offer a SheathEx line for both a corrugated and smooth aluminium sheath. One of the first SheathEx customers worked with BWE to develop and convert their line for both corrugated and smooth. Extensive tests in tandem with their plastic extruder, allowed the cable to bend and wind on a drum without kinking or damaging the sheath. Existing customers are now able to retrofit their corrugated line with this new technology.
