Wire & Cable Industry Amping Up Capacity After Being Grounded
The demand for insulated wire and cable in the US is increasing, driven by factors such as increased home construction, upgrades in fiber optic infrastructure, and investments in smart grids. Building and home construction wires face the challenge of moisture and contaminants, while larger gauge high voltage wires and cables require uniform drying coverage, noise reduction, and adjustability to deal with knots and maintenance.
Sonic Air Systems is a leading provider of drying solutions to the Wire and Cable industry, with over 30 years of experience. We design and manufacture custom wire drying tunnels that address the challenges of drying various wire types, coatings, and multicore cables at high speeds.
Our wire & cable dryers utilize enclosed drying tunnels with automated doors and sound-deadening panels to effectively capture moisture and prevent contaminants from entering the plant. We also offer a one-size-fits-all all-wire drying tunnel that can handle a wide range of wire diameters, from 1.25" to 5" (32-127mm).
This is designed to achieve 360˚ air drying coverage with small & short footprints. We also address challenges such as uniform coverage, noise reduction, knots, and maintenance with our innovative technologies and high-impact air velocity.
Sonic Air engineers' systems that can adapt to wire and cable diameters, eliminating the need to replace drying equipment when production changes cable sizes. This one-size-fits-all approach streamlines operations, reduces downtime, and ensures efficient drying regardless of cable size, speed, or operating conditions.
