Abstract

In modern industries, the development of communication mediums requires high-frequency communication networks in which signal reduction by dielectric loss is increased. Accordingly, the need for an insulator with low permittivity also has grown, making the production of highly foamed insulators now necessary. Considering the mechanical and electrical properties of such insulators, benefits can be seen in multiresponse problems with higher densities of uniform-specific cell size. In this paper, we describe the applicability of a highly foamed polyolefin extrusion process to the manufacturing of insulation for coaxial cable. Moreover, a combination of axiomatic design and the Taguchi method was utilized for solving the multiresponse problem. Through this technique, we propose a new method for optimizing multiresponse problems. Development of manufacturing processes for insulating coaxial cable, and responses for each process variable, become possible with this method.
