HELICORD® Machines and Consumables for Wire and Cable Surface Treatment
The HELICORD® principle is based on friction between a fast-moving wire and a textile cord wound around a wire, strand or insulated cable multiple times, moving rather slowly under push-pull-controlled conditions. This creates a multiple 360° contact between a constantly renewed cleaning medium (i. e. the cord) and the wire.
The friction applied to the wire equals the difference between cord tensions before and after the process zone. It is determined by the cord pre-tension, i.e. the tension on the cord supply side, and the number of loops of cord around the wire when the machine is operated in fixed-number-of-loops mode; or by the cord pre-tension on the cord supply side and tension on the cord take-up side when the machine is operated in friction-controlled mode.
Friction power on the wire increases linearly with the wire speed. This means the friction energy per wire surface unit and thus also efficiency is independent of the wire speed and can be run at drawing speeds.
Although cord and wire can be run in both in same and opposite directions, running wire and cord in opposite directionshas proven most successful for a wide range of cleaning and coating applications.
