- Hi Carlos,
The configuration you are attempting nearly always require a pretwister. I have commissioned a number of machines throughout the world for applications like this, but always with a pretwister.
It also will depend on the machine brand you are using as some of them have a wire path which is not ideal for such type of cabling.
Try to pretension the core conductor higher and make sure that the conductor is not sticky.
- Hi Sam,
Double Twist Bunchers (today really a misnomer since they are mainly used for stranding) are one of the most versatile and productive machines in our industry. They require, however, some rather rigid set-up parameters, starting with the correct wire tension, closing die, lay length etc.
I beg to differ with Peter's sentiment that a double twist machine will produce an inferior product to a single twist machine. That was true 25 years ago, in the meantime double twisters produce perfectly valid 61 wire stranded conductors.
The subject your are addressing cannot be simply answered by a few responses to your questions as there are too many possible variables in the process, starting from the material type, diameter, machine brand, to which standard you wish to produce and more.
