X-RAY 6000 / X-RAY 6000 PRO
Measurement of the wall thickness, eccentricity, diameter and ovality of single and multi layer products

For quality control of cables in jacketing lines as well as for the measurement of RF cables with foamed PE-insulation, the X-RAY 6000 continuously ensures compliance with requested cable specifications regarding wall thickness, eccentricity, diameter and ovality.

Jacketing lines

In jacketing lines the X-RAY 6000 is typically installed between two cooling troughs. In this position the device measures the outer jacket of the cable. An additional diameter gauge head at the end of the production line, combined with a Hot-Cold-Control, considers the shrinkage of the diameter.

RF Cables

The X-RAY 6000 is suitable for the measurement of the foaming and wall thickness of RF cables. For this application the X-ray measuring device is also installed between two cooling trough sections. An additional X-RAY 6000 is used at the cold end of the line for a further quality control.

Immediately with the online measurement the values for wall thickness, eccentricity, outer diameter and ovality are visualized at the processor system ECOCONTROL 6000. The wall thickness values are displayed at 8 points and allow the operator, with the help of the eccentricity values, for an optimal automatic centering of the extrusion tool.

X-ray measuring technology for single- and multi-layer products

SIKORA offers two variants of the X-ray measuring systems X-RAY 6000. Customers who measure up to three cable layers during production, choose the X-RAY 6000 PRO. For cable production lines where only one cable layer is measured, the X-RAY 6000 is available.

X-RAY 6000 for single-layer products

The X-RAY 6000 measures the wall thickness, the eccentricity, and the outer diameter of single-layer cables. In particular, in jacketing lines where only the outer jacket is measured, the X-RAY 6000 is interesting. The production data are clearly displayed at a 7" monitor, which is integrated directly in the measuring system. The operation is intuitive via touch screen. In combination with the processor system ECOCONTROL 600, 1000, 2000 or 6000 an automatic control of the line is possible. By controlling line speed or extruder rpm the cable parameters are controlled to the nominal value.

This device is a cost-effcient and at the same time powerful alternative to the X-RAY 6000 PRO. With the X-RAY 6000 the operator receives an X-ray device that includes exactly the functions that are required. For cables where only one material layer needs to be tested, the X-RAY 6000 proves to be an efficient and reliable partner.

X-RAY 6000 PRO for multi-layer products

The X-RAY 6000 PRO measures the wall thickness, the eccentricity, the diameter and ovality of up to 3 different cable layers. The system includes as a standard the display and control device ECOCONTROL 6000 with a vertical arranged 22" TFT monitor. It is either mounted directly at the X-RAY gauge head, a separate stand, or is remotely integrated in the control cabinet of the line control.

As the 7" monitor of the X-RAY 6000 model, the ECOCONTROL 6000 is conveniently operated via touch screen and shows all measuring values numerically and graphically as well as trend and statistical data. A line presentation with pictograms of the connected devices provides a clear overview. The PROfessional device becomes most efficient with the already included automatic control of the line speed or extruder rpm under consideration of the minimum values.

From the very first day of operation, both X-ray devices, the X-RAY 6000 PRO and the X-RAY 6000, assure a continuous online quality control at the cable production. An offline quality control is not necessary any longer. Simultaneously, the systems reduce the wall thickness to a minimum value. Quality assurance and the reduction of material lead to a significant increase of productivity.

Which X-RAY 6000 fits your production line?

For quality control of RF cables as well as for jacketing lines, in which cables are produced with a filler, the X-RAY 6000 PRO is the first choice. Cables with a metal reinforcement under the outer jacket, are measured by the X-RAY 6000.
