         Wire Rope Parting                                                   

Basic Equipment  

The heart of the machine is a microprocessor based AC electrical controller serving a pair of back to back thyristors. They connect two phases of the mains supply to a transformer to provide a suitable current voltage and duty cycle for the wire rope to be processed.

The secondary side of the transformer is connected to two pairs of hard copper based alloy electrodes with a form to match the rope. Each pair of electrodes clamp around the rope and being spaced a small distance apart causes the rope to complete the electrical circuit, the resistance of the rope forming the secondary electrical load. The electrodes are opened and closed using pneumatically driven mechanical systems allowing the cable to pass through. The electrical power to part the rope is selected via the controller. A typical time to cut a 6.5mm rope is 0.5 seconds. The sophisticated controller offers duel heat settings and power slope control for difficult materials and electro-plated ropes.
