With the latest advances in technology in the wire and cable industry, is the cable manufacturer able to justify the purchase of new equipment? This presentation explains advances in wire processing technology and their benefits compared to existing (old) machinery. It discusses whether savings in energy, labor, and material, coupled with quality improvements, can justify the investment in new and modern technology. Focusing on wiredrawing and double-twist stranding, it presents ROI calculations for real production examples in the wire industry.
