Core Competencies

Extrusion

      Extrusion is the process whereby the various thermoplastic compounds are melted and applied precisely as a concentric insulation layer over a conductor. American Wire & Cable Co. Inc., accomplishes this with the most modern computer controlled equipment in the Philippines. Pelletized compounds are automatically loaded into a heated barrel with a feed screw, precisely mixed under pressure into a molten state, and forced through a die over the conductor. American Wire & Cable Co., Inc. was the first manufacturer in the Philippines to install a computer controlled telephone extrusion line in order to meet stringent international standards. Tandem extruder lines are also employed for the manufacture of THHN building wires.
