A system for producing cables includes an extrusion apparatus with at least one extruder and a head for receiving at least one line of the cable. An induction heating apparatus is disposed downstream of the extrusion apparatus. Downstream of the head and the induction heating apparatus is a suspended vulcanization tube that extends horizontally and forms a catenary curve. The vocalization tube includes a movable and an immobile telescoping tube wherein the mobile tube is adjacent to the head and enables access to the head. The induction heating apparatus downstream of the head is installed in the movable tube or is securely attached to the movable tube, and together with the movable tube is movable. The movable tube and the interiorly installed or exteriorly attached induction heating apparatus is insertable into the immobile tube or is slidable over the immobile tube.
