The Single-Twist machine consists of a welded housing, the rotor with traversing unit and pneumatically operated pintles. The reel is lifted by a hydraulic powered elevator, two DC-drives are provided for the rotor
and the reel, the traversing is driven by an AC-motor. The lay-length control is built up from a digital electronic shaft, the cable is directly wound on the reel without the need of a capstan. The operators desk
gives full control over parameters like Rotor-speed, lay-length, production length and traversing step.
A LCD text-display provides messages to guide the operator and to detect electric faults with direct references. The machine is controlled by a PLC-control, which is located in the main cabinet together with the drive-converters, power-supply, fuses etc.
As an option, the Single-Twist machine can also be used as Rotating Pay-Off in Tandem mode, together with a second Single-Twist machine.
