At the wire Southeast Asia 2015 trade fair, Maschinenfabrik Niehoff and its Singapore Representative Office will show an MSM 85 rod breakdown machine (booth H 33).

The electronically driven MSM 85 is designed to produce wires made of copper, copper alloys, aluminum, aluminum alloys, and other non-ferrous materials. The machine is capable of drawing copper wires with a maximum inlet diameter of 10 mm (or 12.5 mm aluminum wires) to a minimum final diameter of 1.0 mm. The maximum line speed is 40 m/s. Additional features include an optimized wire path, an enhanced wire cooling and lubrication system with a reduced consumption. Like all other new machines built by Niehoff, the MSM 85 is operated by the newly designed and standardized NMI (Niehoff Machine Interface), a network-compatible color touchscreen which features a clear task and user-oriented navigation structure and enables an easy intuitive operation. 

The MSM rod breakdown technology developed by Niehoff has been successfully operating in the international wire industry since its market introduction in 1998. The electronically controlled MSM machines, which have seen continuous development since their initial launch, are equipped with the latest controls and drive technology offering users a vast range of benefits in terms of process technology. The drive principle enables a minimized slip operation resulting in wire with a very high surface quality, maximum energy savings and a long operational life of the drawing tools. Energy savings of more than 20% can be achieved with MSM machines in comparison with conventional rod breakdown machines. With help of the individual drives the wire elongation between the different drafts can be optimized in accordance with the different materials and alloys. The MSM machines can be combined with the newly developed R 502 continuous resistance annealer, which is designed for an annealing power of 600 kW. With Niehoff annealers the wire is homogeneously annealed from zero to full speed operation. 

At the Niehoff booth also the cold rolling mill manufacturer Bühler Würz Kaltwalztechnik and the lead extruder and cable repair and recovery system manufacturer HFSAB will be present.
