According to the manufacturer, the Cable Corder CC4 with patented energy saving technology stands for highest profitability. “The Cable-Corder CC4, which has been awarded the Saurer E³ label for triple added value, has won over the market,” the company explains.

“The innovative technology allows for energy cost savings of up to 50% and reduces the number of yarn breaks by up to 50%. Furthermore, it offers low noise emission and simple machine handling.”

With the patented energy saving upgrade package, the great number of Allma CC3 cabling machines that are in use can be retrofitted with the CC4 technology. Further innovative developments are the production of balanced 3-ply tire cord in a single-stage process, as well as the possibility to produce hybrid yarns both in the two-for-one and cabling process.
