SKET Central Stranders have been making their claim to top spot in the cable industry for over 30 years

SKET Central Strander
SKET Central Strander

When SKET introduced the Central Strander, a totally new type of rigid strander, to the international cable industry in the nineteen-seventies, it was greeted by industry experts with a great deal of scepticism, as were most innovations at that time. In spite of the significance of stranding speeds which made possible extremely high increases in productivity, this new technology had to earn its acceptance in a fiercely competitive market place step by step and over a long period of time.

Today SKET Central Stranders are an essential part of efficient cable production. More than 100 stranders of this type, supplied to customers around the world and in a wide range of machine arrangements and sizes, demonstrate the durability and effectiveness of the principle and calculable competitive advantages for users.

SKET Central Stranders prove themselves time and time again when compared with other like systems. And the SKET MKZ 700 is at the very top of the tree in terms of this unique technology when it comes to the production of stranded conductors. On offer are practical stranding speeds of up to 500 rpm and linear throughput speeds of up to 180 m/min and this, together with consistency in conductor quality guaranteed by controlled tension in the product, ensures not only the high output of the system but also significant savings in material costs.

In response to technological developments in the cable industry SKET has recently introduced a range of machines suitable for larger stranding product volumes whilst maintaining all of the competitive advantages which the Central Strander otherwise offers.

With the MKZ 250, available as a Single or Twin machine, SKET has now developed a machine version which is particularly suited to the needs of aluminium wire stranding and overhead conductor production. A stranding product volume of 245 dm3, which is three times the volume of a 630 mm DIN bobbin, special wire guides and a hybrid bobbin braking systems set the standards for this new version.
