IBA extends its self-shielded crosslinking product family currently consisting of Easy-e-Beam® 550 keV and 800 keV with the new Easy-e-Beam® 1 MeV.

“The automotive market continuously demands for higher temperature resistance and reduced insulation wall thickness. But on the other hand, we see new demands for larger size wires from automotive, rolling stock and other specialty cables requiring a higher beam energy (1 MeV self-shielded solutions)”, says Gino Massaro, Sales VP at IBA. “With energy of 1 MeV and bigger drums, the new Easy-e-Beam® will be able to handle larger cross section wires, thicker wall insulations and higher density compounds”.

In the frame of IBA’s continuous product improvement program, additional new features are enriching functionality of the Easy-e-Beam product family: modular under beam handling, internal diagnostics and product traceability.

  • Modular product handling allows extending the range and type of products processed including traditional and flat wires, heat shrink tubing or even sheets by exchanging under-beam handling systems.
  • Internal diagnostics provide customers critical information to further improve the system’s availability by displaying parameter trending and expected lifetime of critical components or sub-systems.
  • Wire processing parameter traceability is a central data collection system, built into the Easy-e-Beam® Software Control System, designed to integrate with data systems from other manufacturing processes.
