The reels are taken between pintles.
The pay-off is of column-type design and is laid out for reels with the mentioned dimensions.
Motorized opening/closing of the pintle arms.Lifting and lowering of pintles through gearmotors.
Pulling force and speed are torque controlled. (Only for DPO Type)
Pay-off also has a correction mechanism for unwinding, which enables machine to get the wire/cable in to the center of the direction of the line.
The machine has modular design, which permits easy adaptation to varying requirements of winding and unwinding processes.
Overhead pay-off (DPO) units are portal type, which are able to move right and left.
