Our design team in conjunction with a number of clients in the pipe extrusion industry has developed a unique, one-stop solution for reeling and coiling cable, pipe and hose. The GWS Gantry take-up, which is produced in a range of sizes, reels onto various drum sizes has been expanded with the largest machine now being able to accept a 5m diameter drum. In addition, an ingenious, new interchangeable collapsible coiling attachment, produced to client specific sizes, transforms the machine into a coiler for producing freestanding coils. Other options include auto-layering and even a motorised manoeuvring carriage enabling portability between process lines. “With numerous orders already from many of market leading manufacturers of optical fibre sub-ducting and pipe, the GWS range is fast becoming the industry standard solution” “Manufacturers can now use one machine for winding onto bulk, storage drums or reel onto a semi-collapsible coiling head for wound coils” Mike added.
