Despite the globalisation moved to Far East and mainly to China the world’s factories, still there is one factory of 15.000 sqm including several building, extended over a ground of 50.000 sq.m, into the countryside of the Pavia province, surrounded of rice fields ‘cause it is si de to the Ticino river, employing 70 people,... still manufacturing with success coaxial cables for the Italian domestic market and their European customers.
The company named Italiana Conduttori and producing cables under the CAVEL brand, is located in Gropello Cairoli, some 30 km south of Milan along the motorway en route to Genoa and it has been established since 1968. Initially, the production started into a rented industrial building while during the time the company has achieved continuous growth and major recognition in both the Italian and the international markets reaching the current size.
New buildings have been added year by year, including a two floor block of offices to lodge the administration and the commercial activities. The oldest building today recovers the raw materials stock and the drawing department while the core of the production plants includes an efficient laboratory dedicated to the Quality System Management as well the Research and Development activities.
The costs of designing and building TV distribution networks necessitate products with better performance integrity and longer life. To meet these expectations, CAVEL coaxial cables have been designed to comply with new technological demands. More effective screening techniques have been developed and dimensions reduced, while at the same time enhancing mechanical strength and increasing durability.
This has been made possible due to the use of nitrogen gas in jected physical foam insulation technology, used for the production of coaxial cables dielectric.
Our service to installers has been improved by the introduction of CABLEBOX dispensers, offering environmental and health and safety benefits as well as a wide range of connectors and tools as complementary items.
Cavel is not only a producer of coaxials cables but is developing a new products in order to cover all the communication cables and satisfy all the market request.
Cavel was one of the first company in the world to develop a line of Hybrid coaxial cables. In fact, thanks to the development of business in the Scandinavian markets we designed and started to supply one peculiar combined cable made of one drop coaxial for underground installation combined into the same overall outer sheath with a loose pipe; the latter available for further insertion of fiber optic cables with the blow system.
The evolution of this cable consisting in the addition of one FO cable made by two fibers already available into the pipe
Another interest of Cavel is the Video Security because this sector is continuously demanding better performances for the remote camera. The CAVEL answer to this field of applications was the introduction of one set of dedicated cables, providing: incomparable better attenuation and screening efficiency than any previous RG59/11, URM or
KX6/11 type coaxials and a wider range of applications (indoor, outdoor and safety in case of fire) this due to the outer sheath of flexible EVA without halogen. The offer includes different cables that could cover all the market request.
Furthermore, thanks to market researches and the feasibility study started since the beginning of 2009, in the early 2010 Cavel got the first line of equipment for manufacturing LAN cables.
Of course the challenge was to acquire in short time a large amount of knowledge to recover the gap of the many improvements made by this industry in decades of perfecting the cable’s performances.
Our approach was to start the production of the easier Categories like 5e, 6 and 6a which represent today a part of our offer for single or twin cables provided with PVC, PE and LSZH jackets.
The acquisition of experience in this field and further improve of our equipment will give us the chance to start the production of LAN cables provided with PIMF twisted pairs for S/FTP versions of screened cables as well as the true CAT. 7 and 8.
Last but not least all cables produced under the CAVEL brand have a 15 years of guarantee
