Maillefer Extrusion India Pvt. Ltd., manufacturer of cable machinery and related equipment has launched new helical crosshead THC 70/150 HE Crosshead. This is designed for medium and high-voltage Poly-Propelene insulated cable production.

Maillefer’s Optimised Helical Distributor

The crosshead features an optimised helical distributor that ensures accurate wall thickness, centricity, and roundness of the cable. The helical design increases overlapping in the insulation seam area, thereby improving the cable’s electrical properties.
