“The current pandemic continues to impact how businesses operate. Measures limit interactions. Our lives are impacted daily. After the first wave of cases, we saw encouraging signs toward a return to the norm. Now, an undesirable climb confirms a second onset and leads to uncertainty for what lies ahead.  Safety for all is our first priority. The unforeseeable conditions do not allow us to envision a secure and safe environment for our visitors and for our multi-disciplined team. We recognize the considerable safety measures put in place. However, the crisis is in constant evolution. The health risks in the coming future remain unknown.

Maillefer has long anticipated “wire” 2020. Our team has shown growing excitement for this key industry event. Even with a setback in plans, we feel there are opportunities to present and share the latest Maillefer innovations in equipment, process optimization, smart intelligence solutions, and life cycle services. Expect to learn more about these new offerings soon, both through media interaction and through novel face-to-face mini-events.

We believe that innovation and progress will always take precedence. It is expressed through the many ways people choose to meet and interact. We look forward to greeting you again in the very near future.”
Lars Fagerholm, EVP, Maillefer

A showcase of products will surround the “Smart Circle”, which is at the heart of the Maillefer stand at “wire 2020”. Two complete lines will be visible on the stand – a fiber optic secondary coating line and an imposing high-voltage CCV line. Leading technologies are integrated into their lines and components. Get to experience smart buffering, roundness optimization, defect detection, preventive maintenance, Sim factory, NCC curing calculation and more within the smart circle. Artificial intelligence with its neural networks and predictive models captured from real industry environments, are thrusting production performance and product quality forward while ensuring that you stay well in control of the demanding extrusion process.

Two complete lines will be visible on the stand – a fiber optic secondary coating line and an imposing high-voltage CCV line. They both fit on just a few square meters. Thanks to virtual reality and some powerful rendering Maillefer is able to take visitors on an exploratory tour that reveals the winning designs and inner workings of the two lines.

Maillefer smart monitoring will be at work during the show, taking a variety of data from the stand, then crunching, compiling, correlating, and consolidating it into an informative display of the Smart Factory. Its remarkable flexibility makes it a decisive tool for successful factory operation that adapts easily and evolves rapidly to individual needs. Exemplary production sites around the globe are pushing the limits of wire and cable manufacturing. The company is proudly listing more than a dozen of them as industry references. Learn about each of their successes and how Maillefer gets involved with practical solutions, know-how and services. For those who need to get their hands around real steel components, Maillefer will have lots of them on the stand. The exhibits includes topography scanning of energy cable surfaces, new dual take-up for telecom wire, a choice of crossheads and extruders for low-voltage and fiber optic cables, a tape folding system, and more.
