In order to continue the growth strategy, Cablotech recently made several and precise investments.
The server room has been completely renewed, now it lists a cluster on an IBM hardware, both of new generation. This instrument guarantees a better and safer performance thanks to a widely oversized hardware. The server room is protected by a total protection double firewall with constant contents analysis. A daily high efficiency backups system – with virtual machine remote saving – is juxtaposed to this protection and it is related both to the production and to the offices. The mentioned performance upgrade has obvious virtuous consequences improving the overall working quality and the production system, simplifying the information exchange, and the ordinary practices automation.
Investments continued with the replacement of the black and white inkjet printers.
We point up the inclusion of new equipment concerning the cutting and stripping of the “white” line managed by a sophisticated and very efficient software. As well as for the “black” line, the introduced printer allows machining able to mark a wire with an outer diameter of 1.5 mm equal to a 24 AWG style 1007 with the bold font. In shut down phase there is an automatic nozzle block. This guarantees a low solvent consumption.
For the “white” line our choice was oriented toward machines able to treat pigmented ink even in the standby phase, granting highly reliable start-stop operations. This last one – in 60 micron version – allows to mark a wire with an outer diameter of 1.5 mm equal to a 22AWG style 1007 without bold font.
Another action involved a new WP-cable software installed on the black ink jet printer of the flat cables cutting line. It allows to place and to characterize the text according to the customer’s specification. All new installed printers are equipped with luminous column and horn, alerting in case of downtime or low level of consumables.

Below is a short list of more machines and equipment recently introduced in our manufacturing process:
Modular cutting and stripping machine, equipped with a booster on the cutting head to process wires with an outside diameter of 35 mm or 240 mm². The machine has a multi-blade cutting head and is equipped with a Smart system. A slitting unit has been inserted on longitudinal cutting to allows stripping far above the usual standard. In the video (below-to the left) it is shown a processing example, referring to a cable 3100 mm long with a stripping length of 1400 mm performed with the slitting unit. Obviously an appropriate software has been installed on the cutting and stripping machine , achieving a significant increasing of the necessary flexibility managing the data in the library, reducing consequently possible setting errors and saving time. If the customer provides a file in text format (ASCII) our technical department can easily import lists over 1000 lines with wire or cable data. The software has been updated to the latest version on every cutting and stripping machine and this process will continue to follow up.
Many more are the functions that can be applied to the machine.
