As of the start of the year, Rosendahl Nextrom's technology center, located at its headquarters in Austria, has been exclusively dedicated to datacom. Two new laboratory lines, one for loose tube production and another for Cat8 wire insulation, have been installed and are now available for test runs and trials:

New loose tube line delivers on all fronts
Equipped with numerous features aimed at enhancing quality and productivity, while at the same time reducing scrap, the latest generation loose tube line marks a significant advancement in fiber optical cable manufacturing. Noteworthy for its compact design, the line achieves speeds of up to 1,200m/min. Visitors can experience firsthand the improved performance of an enhanced fiber cutter, optimised jelly-filling, a cable drying system for high speeds, and more.

Exceptional quality and unrivaled speed for LAN cable production
The second line that has been installed is a high-speed insulation line for category 8 LAN cables. The core of the line features a robust extruder group of four with high-precision gas dosing. Notable highlights include the cooling section and the automatic take-up station, specifically engineered to handle speeds of up to 2,500m/min.

R+D as a mission
“We are excited to advance our research and development with these new laboratory lines and extend our infrastructure to our customers and partners,” says Johann Jäkel, Business Unit Director. “The trials on the lab equipment will help improve product quality and increase operational efficiency. It’s a win-win situation for everyone involved and further strengthens the strategic partnership with our customers.”
