Wire tension monitoring in stranding machines - successful machine upgrades in India

Multi-stage planetary strander upgraded with FMS' Tension Monitoring System RTMX42

Anyone who is familiar with the Indian Cable Industry understands the significance of high performance capability in a user friendly package. Products that include useless features, that are difficult to handle, and complicated to apply have a difficult position in this market. With that in mind, FMS launches a new wire tension monitoring series for stranding machines.

A company that values high productivity while counting on advanced production facilities is the Indian Usha Martin group. The enterprise, a leader in its industry, manufactures all styles of cables. Usha Martin's Wire Rope division has begun to modernize major production lines and bring its equipment to state of the art.

The picture shows a multi-stage planetary strander that was upgraded with FMS' Tension Monitoring System RTMX42. Ease of retrofitting and operational simplicity were at the very top of the requirements list.

The RTMX42 series utilizes force sensors to measure the tension of individual wires or strands, and then transmits the data wirelessly from the rotating to the static part of the machine. On the receiver side the system provides a sophisticated range of interface options for controlling or tension monitoring applications. It can be efficiently integrated into the existing communication infrastructure of the machine. RTMX42 is offered in 5 different sub versions:

  • RTMX42.IOs for tension monitoring with up to 42 channels and analogue outputs to provide controlling capability.
  • RTMX42.PC: Tension monitoring with data processing and analysis capability (data logging, quality reports).
  • RTMX42.PC/IOs combines the features of the PC and IOs versions.
  • RTMX42.MODBUS makes the system very appealing for machine builders because of its fast bus interfaces. It allows real time control of breaks or drives in the machine.
  • RTMX42.PC/MODBUS combines all advanced features of the MODBUS and PC version.
