The development of offshore wind power and submarine cables requires presently always larger specifications to the manufacturer of cable machines.
Stolberger-KMB Maschinenfabrik GmbH, a competent equipment supplier to the worldwide wire and cable industry, and a traditional manufacturer of cable-making and stranding machines, have also been developing and manufacturing especially high-capacity tangential and concentric taping heads and belt caterpillars. Stolberger, just like throughout their range of products, go for solutions tailored to suit the needs of the market.
For this, Stolberger have developed a lot of tailor-made taping heads and belt caterpillars in the last years. At the moment there are two and four pad tangential taping heads in production for plastic and textile tapes with tape pad diameters of 800 mm and tape widths up to 130 mm for especially big cable diameters up to Ø 400 mm.
Furthermore, the product range includes two and four pad steel tangential taping heads with tape pad diameters up to 1000 mm and tape widths up to 100 mm as well as yarn binders having bobbin outer diameters up to 500 mm.
