Weber & Scher Mfg. Co., Inc., which was established in 1915 by Mr. George Scher, has specialized for more than 65 years in providing equipment and technology specifically to the wire and cable industry. The company's area of expertise and core business has been in the manufacture and supply of metal tape handling and application systems. This includes the manufacture of seam welding and corrugating systems for use in the production of power cables.

Recently, Weber & Scher introduced its latest generation Longitudinal Metal Tape Seam Welding and Corrugating Line (see accompanying photograph) for producing power cables having a longitudinally seam welded and corrugated metal tape sheath construction.

This system utilizes the TIG (GTAW) welding process for welding the two (2) tape edges after being formed longitudinally around the cable core. A critical component of this line is the Welded Metal Sheath Corrugating Machine which is designed for imparting helical or annular corrugations into the welded metal sheath in tandem with the longitudinal welding operation. All operating parameters can be accurately set to obtain repeatable corrugating results which are critical for the purposes of product standardization. The corrugating machine, in conjunction with the Weber & Scher cable core pay-off, metal tape supply stand, tape edge slitting system, forming and welding station, caterpillar capstan, cable take-up, all combine to form a state of the art system for producing high performance power cables.
