    Case Studies

        Our weld lead and power lead cables are subject to extreme conditions. They lie in oils, solvents, soaps, and are subject to being run over by forklifts and other machinery. Previous to TPC, we changed out cable two to three times per year on each of our eight welding machines. Some of our machines have been equipped with TPC cable for three full years!

        Rail Customer Saves with Solution for Support Bar Weld Machine

        impact-abrasion-case-study-3374


        CUSTOMER PROBLEM:

        A container car facility in Saginaw, Texas was replacing the commodity cable on their support bar weld machine every 7 months. The machine welds a bar on the bottom of the container car, which supports the weight of the cylinder resting above. The commodity cables powering the machine were failing due to equipment driving over them, hot steel falling on them, and other instances of impact and abrasion. Six units were experiencing the same failures.

        TPC SOLUTION:

        Our TPC sales representative recommended Super-Trex® Type W RHH/RHW Single Conductor Power Cable. This product features a security yellow TSE jacket, which is flame and heat resistant while providing excellent protection against abrasion, tearing, impact, oils, and most industrial chemicals.

        CUSTOMER’S RESULT:

        After using TPC’s product for 28 months, the customer confirmed its value. Previously, failures added up to $24,660 in parts and labor plus the additional cost of downtime. Now, with Super-Trex® Type W RHH/RHW Single Conductor Power Cable in use, the customer has replaced cable just 1 time per unit, saving $14,693 in parts and labor, while increasing production by 71 hours.
