Main characteristics

Highly dynamic and compact single-twist stranding machine for the production of extremely flexible and high performance multicore cables.

The heavy steel structure and the light alloy rotor ensure excellent stability, shock absorption and twisting precision, in order to achieve the highest performances. The innovative wire guide, designed for a precise cable deposition and composed by an alloy wide ring traversing across the reel, guarantees a balanced and compact system. The stranding core is protected by a soundproof steel structure with a sliding door and an inspection window.

The collecting reel is clamped by a two-tailstock system supporting the most common reels, even with small hole diameter. Reel loading and unloading operations are simplified thanks to a driven lifting platform equipped with pre-set stop positions.

The fully digital control system executes the most precise twisting lay-length, additionally adjusted through a contactless meter counter feedback signal.

These wire stranding lines are perfectly completed by WTM’s high speed concentric backtwist cable pay-offs, interfaced by fieldbus communication to the central control unit, that is provided with a color touchscreen display.
