Wire & Tube 2022 has just ended and it's already time to draw the balance.
It was not my first time at this event in general, but certainly my first time with NDC Technologies.
I must say that the excitement is always the same. And so is the effort!
Long months of preparation, between planning, designing and paperwork, evaporate in just a few days, leaving much satisfaction and vacation desire on the body.
Honestly, after four years of waiting, postponements, cancellations, covid, war, energy crisis, you name it, there was also some fear that the event might not live up to the investment. Nevertheless, the industry's response was powerful, and the desire to come back and shake hands live was too strong. Messe Düsseldorf, the event organizer, reports that 1,822 exhibitors from over 50 countries displayed technology innovations on 93,000 square meters of exhibition space. A great achievement.
Unfortunately, the visitor turnout was not at the levels of previous editions due to regional lockdowns and travel restrictions. However, the quality of the leads was very high, and there were many concrete and stimulating conversations.
At booth D68, Hall 11, we showcased a wide range of solutions for wire, cable and tube measurement and inspection.
First of all, we presented our latest measurement innovations unlike anything available on the marketplace today.
LaserSpeed Pro M Series
Developed on the success of the LaserSpeed Pro, it is the industry's only non-contact length and speed gauge for measuring moving, bouncing products. Unlike anything on the marketplace today, NDC's new LaserSpeed Pro M Series gauge accurately and reliably measures the length and speed of long, continuous cylindrical products during production that bounce and cannot be well-guided, move off-axis or out of the measurement range.
The new AccuScan Pro is a single-axis diameter gauge with application versatility that provides 100% inspection of multi-strand wire during production. This innovative solution allows manufacturers to accurately and simultaneously measure the diameter of their wires and effectively detect missing and broken strands.
Smart Temp is the latest intelligent preheating solution on the market today. It offers advanced high-frequency heating and integrated temperature control capabilities to deliver the highest-quality, most reliable uniform in-process wire preheating to eliminate insulation voids in primary cables. Smart Temp is equipped with TempTrac Pro for additional wire temperature sensing and control after the preheating.
We also displayed our most popular measurement solutions for wire and cable processing including:
- DataPro 5000 and InControl for process control and data management
- AccuScan Series for on-line diameter and ovality measurement
- BenchMike Pro for off-line diameter and ovality measurement
- CenterScan 2010 for non-contact eccentricity measurement
- LayScan for lay length measurement
- LN3000 Series for lump and neckdown detection
- LaserSpeed Pro for non-contact length and speed measurement
- UltraScan Pro for ultrasonic wall thickness and concentricity measurement
All in all, the fair was a great success for us. We are pleased with the interest raised by our intelligent, connected measurement control solutions among industry leaders. We have received many inquiries and are working hard to respond to all of them.
In conclusion, I would like to thank everyone who visited our booth and the entire BETA LaserMike Products team for the great work.
See you again in 2024!
