Huber+Suhner selected IBA for the supply of three electron beam accelerators

PUBLISHED: 19 May 11

IBA has entered into an agreement with Huber+Suhner for the supply of three Dynamitron® electron beam accelerators. Two Dynamitrons® will be installed in Huber+Suhner's facility in China and one in Switzerland. The supplied Dynamitrons® will mainly be used for the production of cross linked RADOX® cables for the fast growing photovoltaic and railway markets.

"Huber+Suhner is increasing its production capacity of RADOX® cables. Photovoltaic cables require very long service life and must resist to harsh environmental conditions such as extreme temperatures and UV radiation", says Patrick Riederer, COO of Huber+Suhner's Low Frequency Division.

"In the railway market the cables are exposed to high mechanical stress and have to fulfill strict safety requirements. Electron beam crosslinked RADOX® cables are the key for reaching these performances." The cables are also used in the field of automotive and other industrial applications, where cables have to fulfill similar requirements.

"Some of the reasons why we chose IBA are the quality of their global support organization, their continuous product improvement program and the ability to customize features for our specific needs", adds Patrick Riederer.

"We are proud that Huber+Suhner renewed its trust in IBA for the supply of three electron beam accelerators", says Jean-Louis Bol, VP Sales at IBA. "Global customers such as Huber+Suhner not only require quality products with high reliability. They also need to rely on a strong partner with a global technical support network including experts and spare parts available in key regions around the world."
