TELE-FONIKA KABLE S.A. is the largest producer of conduits and cables in Central and Eastern Europe. In terms of production of rubber cables, TELE-FONIKA Kable is a leader in Poland and also does not resolve the place to other European and global producers.
The factory of TELE-FONIKA Kable in Kraków at ul. Wieliczka, has 60-years experience in the production of cables in rubber compounds mining and industrial applications. We successfully deliver cables to permanent and new recipients around the world. Mainly to mines, industrial plants, wind and solar power plants. Cables are delivered to customers in Poland and also to such countries as the USA, Canada, Chile, Peru, Australia, Germany, South Africa and Ukraine, Bulgaria, Denmark, Norway, Slovakia.
TF Kable has a modern technology complex to compete in the field of conduits and cables in rubber with the largest producers of such products in the world. Since June 2011, the team to develop cables in rubber has operated. It consists of 7 people who develop new modern cables structures and promotes products of TF Kable on the world markets by taking part in a wide variety of fairs, symposia and conferences.
TELE-FONIKA Kable in Kraków has a modern rubber mixing plant, which includes several modern mixers with high performance, with automatic components dosing, refrigerator and cutting machine and equipment for the automatic collection of rubber.
The whole production process of rubber mixing is strictly programmed and controlled by computer. Due to own production of electro-insulating materials on modern devices, we guarantee high quality and meeting all requirements in accordance with the needs of the market.
For the production of conduits and cables in rubber, TF Kable has several different line of continuous curing, stranding machines, braiding machines. CV lines have production capacities of several layers of rubber in one operation and equipment to constantly review the production process and parameters of producted items. In addition, the plant produces mining cables in a polyurethane shell with a high resistance to abrasion. TF Kable has a very extensive production programme of conduits and cables in rubber covering rated voltages from 100/100 V to 18/30 kV, cross sections from 0.75 mm2 to 1000 mm2, and a number of cores from 1 to 56. We produce conduits and cables based on the Polish and foreign standsrds such as: DIN VDE/German/, BS/British/, ICEA and ASTM /American /NF C/French/, SANS /South African/, GOST /Russian/ and many others.
Rubber used in the production of conduits and cables is based mainly on synthetic rubber such as: ethylene-propylene-dienoic acid /EPDM/, ethylene-vinyl-octane, butadiene-stirene, silicone. Insulating rubber, depending on the type and application, guarantees continuous operation temperature from 60 through 110 to 220 degrees C. For the production of other cables elements, the following rubbers are used: polychloroprene, chlorinated polyethylene, chlorosulphonated polyethylene and other depending on the purpose.
Many-year experience in the production of rubber and cables in rubber has enabled to develop materials that meet a variety of requirements depending on the needs of the intended purpose of the product. The cables operating in difficult conditions such as mining have rubber tires resistant to flame spreading, tearing, crushing, grinding, water, oil, grease. The cables are so constructed to ensure the longest and safest operation in difficult working conditions in the underground mines and other heavy industrial conditions.
