SUBSEA CABLE INDUSTRY

ROVING HEAD CABLE MACHINE

Timeframe

6 weeks

The Brief:

Working to the customer’s brief to design, manufacture and deliver a Roving Head Cable machine, our engineers used the latest technology to create a design, which was then used to produce the 5 tonne machine on our CNC equipment.

Large in terms of size, weight and cost, the resulting 3m diameter machine has spindles attached to the face plate which rotates, allowing string or other products to be applied to the subsea cable when it comes through the centre of the tube.

"Having first worked with JDR Cables in 2005 to upgrade the turntable on their cable twister at their Ely site, we continue to value the loyalty of our returning customers in this expanding market sector!

Clients in the subsea cable industry often make use of our rapid response 24hour breakdown services and being a British company we are able to respond quickly and efficiently. On the few occasions there have been on-site issues we have been able to rectify them quickly and easily, therefore guaranteeing customer satisfaction and loyalty.”
