Cable Vulcanizer

Repairs Cable in Underground Mines

When using flexible trailing cable in a mine, damage is a fact of life.

Reducing downtime is a high priority. American Mine Door®‘s cable vulcanizer offers sturdy construction that stands up to heavy use.

Our light weight aluminum frame model allows for easier transporting from point to point in and out of the mine.

Our steel frame cable vulcanizer is favored inside many cable repair shops. With our steel frame unit weighing in at 152 lbs and our sturdy aluminum frame cable vulcanizer coming in at a mere 75 lbs, portability can be taken for granted.

The innovative and proven design of American Mine Door’s cable vulcanizer has been used in the mining industry for years, making jobs easier and safer.

Cable Molds

We design and machine in-house two different types of molds that are used in our CV machines. Molds are machined from 6061 aluminum using CNC machining equipment.  All CV molds are fitted with hardened pins and bushings for alignment of the top and bottom halves of the mold.

Splicing molds are used to join two cables together or repair damaged wires within a multi-conductor cable. These molds open up to a larger diameter in the center of the mold to accommodate the extra space required for the splice.

Repair molds are used to repair damaged outer jacket only. Repair molds have the same diameter of the cable being repaired all the way through the mold. To learn more, email us today at info@minedoor.com, or call to speak to one of our experienced engineers at 216-432-3240.
