LAN Cables, Category types 3,4,5,6,7++. All benchmarks for production demand techniques that far surpass traditional wire and cable production. Attention to tension and construction details are a must throughout the process. Without this attention to detail product performance simply cannot be achieved. The MGS Group companies have been on the forefront of this market successfully addressing these process demands. We take an engineered approach to each technical application. Each manufacturer in this market approaches their processes differently, therefore we adapt machine capability specifically to meet the needs of our customers insuring final product performance.
The Oil and Gas markets includes a broad range of products from subsea umbilical cables, seismic survey, wireline service cables, downhole pump power cables and more. These cables involve great engineering detail for the demands of the environments they operate in. Manufacturers in this market adapt their capabilities to the new designs they develop resulting in requirements of flexibility in the machines they use in their processes. The MGS Group works with the customer to design our equipment to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.
Coaxial cables provide high bandwidth communications supporting television transmission to demanding aerospace communications systems. The MGS Group has provided engineered solutions to meet these demands. The MGS Group provides solutions from the extrusion to packaging operations for these products. Similar to the demands seen in category cable applications, specific capability has to be engineered into the process machinery to address structural return loss concerns with the final cable constructions.
RF cables support high bandwidth communications networks. Basically, the king of coaxial cables, the RF Cable construction are demanding in many respects. The cable is often times a foamed construction requiring specialized techniques and process know how. The handling of the cable in manufacture requires steady and consistent movements to insure the cable performance. The MGS Group machinery has insured smooth and steady cable handling throughout these processes. We have provided a range of payoffs, takeups and capstans for applications in this field.
From basic to precious metal tubing, The MGS Group attention to tension control process stability insures the integrity of the product is delivered to the end user. We have provided solutions for tubing applications in a variety of applications. Pictured here is takeup laying the final product onto a reel for delivery to the customer.
Heat shrink tubing has special characteristics to accomplish its job in the electrical world. The forming process for this material is a sensitive operation as well the packaging of these products after the manufacture demands care. The MGS Group range of products is designed for specialized attention to tension and lay control for working with heat shrink tubing.
Construction, building, and industrial applications are increasingly specifying cables in conduit for a variety of applications.

Telecommunications has changed over the past 30 years. The telecommunications industry used to center around copper cables of up to six or eight inches. Today the industry has leaped technologically into fiber based cable constructions of less than an inch that transmit many times the amount of voice and data once carried on those old copper cables. Telecommunications has merged into what is now considered datacommunications. This world has changed dramatically and become supported by those cables including Category, Coax, Fiber and RF. These cables support your voice and data needs be it in the office, home or via your mobile phone. All along this market, The MGS Group has machines engineered to provide rugged and robust solutions for the manufacturing operations.
Some insulated wires are made with electron beam processing of the polymers coating the wire. The electron beam process crosslinks or cures the polymer coating the wire to achieve durability desired by end users of the wire. Pictured here is a purpose built under beam capstan machine that exposes the multiple wraps of the wire around the capstan wheels to the e beam. The wire insulation requires a certain amount of time in front of the beam for crosslinking of the polymer. The MGS Group worked with industry leaders to develop this application specific solution for this demanding and technical requirement.
Specialty wires are basically those wires that are engineered to a customer’s requirement. These wires are most often similar to other wires and cables in other markets, then modified to meet specific engineering challenges in a specific application. These applications often develop into large markets for wire processors that focus their attention on individualized needs rather than more commodity products. Some of these products are produced in relatively small quantities in plants specialized in “short run” or “job shop” environments. Many of these products ultimately become high quantity products of tomorrow. Key machine characteristics for this market are flexible machine designs that can adapt to the continuously changing production requirements which is a trademark of The MGS Group engineered excellence.
