Wire & Cable Extrusion (Coating)

At TSM Control Systems, we understand the importance of precision and customization in wire and cable extrusion. We work closely with our clients to develop tailored solutions that meet their unique process requirements and production goals. We offer advanced control and automation solutions for a wide range of industrial processes, including the wire and cable industry. 




Wire and cable extrusion is a manufacturing process where a protective or insulating layer is applied to a wire or cable. The materials used in this process often include various plastics, such as polyethylene, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and thermoplastic elastomers. These products are utilized across numerous industries, including telecommunications, energy, automotive, construction, and electronics. 

Key Challenges in Wire and Cable Extrusion 

Wire and cable extrusion presents several challenges, including material consistency, process control, color matching, and ensuring consistent insulation thickness. TSM’s solutions are designed to address these challenges, providing improved accuracy, increased efficiency, and better quality control. 

Surging in Wire and Cable Extrusion 

Surging is an operational issue where the material flow through the extruder becomes irregular or fluctuating. TSM Control Systems’ solutions can help to create a consistent and uniform flow throughout the extruder, reducing the risk of surging in wire and cable extrusion processes. 

Our solutions are designed to enhance the wire and cable extrusion process: 

  1. Opti-Mix Gravimetric Batch Blender: Enhances wire and cable extrusion by providing accurate and uniform mixing of various materials for the insulation layer. 
  2. Opti-Feed SLIW Gravimetric Dosing: Ensures that precise amounts of color and additives are incorporated into the coating material. 
  3. Opti-Yield SLIW Extruder Control: Controls the feed rate of materials into the extrusion process, leading to better quality control and consistency in the final product. 
  4. TSM Conveying, Treatment & Storage Equipment: Efficient handling of materials before, during, and after the extrusion process. 
  5. Opti-Batch Material Totalizer: Measures throughput – material consumption. 
  6. Insight by TSM Control Systems: Offers real-time monitoring and optimization of the production process. 

By improving the accuracy, efficiency, and consistency of material blending and processing, TSM Control Systems can help manufacturers improve product quality, reduce material waste, increase productivity, and improve profitability. Our systems also offer flexibility, cost savings, and improved quality control. 

Insight by TSM Control Systems 

Insight is a platform that offers real-time monitoring and optimization of the production process. It can lead to increased efficiency and quality in wire and cable extrusion. The remote diagnostics, predictive maintenance, and inventory management features can also reduce downtime and streamline the extrusion process.
