Customised profiles for multi-wire drawing dies for copper cable and dies for stainless steel wire are a speciality of Mikrotek. Training is an integral part of the company’s corporate culture. Its in-house training includes lean systems, and skill training centres for operators to continuously improve their technical skills to produce high-quality products. The company provides a re-polishing and re-sizing service for used diamond dies and TC dies. It also offers a turnkey project to set up a complete re-polishing and re-sizing plant for the dies. The project includes plant and machinery testing equipment, QA, training and installation. Mikrotek undertakes projects to improve the productivity of wire drawing companies. In the process, the technical team will visit the drawing plant, and study the drawing conditions and historical data. It will then discuss, make simple corrections and conduct trials to improve the overall efficiency of the drawing plant, and not just the die life. Mikrotek Machines Ltd www.mikrotek.in Mixer SpA combines quality and reliability with innovation, offering materials to the cable market that are designed on the basis of its acquired expertise. The company has a consolidated experience in MV compounds, having been producing blends based on EPDM and EPDM/PE since 1996, and becoming a major compounder for medium-voltage insulation, marketed around the world.

The range of Mixer products for medium-voltage insulation is now comprehensive, and includes harder or flexible products, grades for single-core or multi-core cables and for an operating voltage from 6 to 95kV, and with lead or lead-free. The Ekopren MV products are suitable for operating temperatures of 90°C and 105°C and are compliant to international standards.
