The two-headed coiler of the 8-shaped type (or, as it is also called “cross shaped”) is installed at the end of the extrusion line as a take-up, or installed separately off the line with its own pay-off device.
Parameter is set the length of the coil (305 meters standard) to the coiler, the diameter of the hole for the plastic sleeve. The coiler automatically receives the cable and lays it out by a cross, which is necessary for the cable LAN and data cable. Upon reaching the specified footage, the coiler stops. Operator needs to cut the cable in a specific place and tuck in the end of the cable into the second (free) receiving head, press the START button to continue coiling. A shift takes less than 10 seconds.
While a new coil is being wound, the operator removes the finished coil from the head, installs the sleeve (pre-prepared) in the hole, puts the coil in a cardboard box (pre-prepared), pulls the inner end of the cable through the hole. The packaging process takes less than a minute. The average operating speed of the coil is 160 m / min.
