For Unwinding of Wire & Cable, Hose and Conduit
Calmec has a wide range of Pay-Offs to suit most requirements. From small Fixed Frame and Multi-Station units to large reel Floor Roll and Bridge type machines, Calmec offers a wide selection of sizes and styles.
What style is best for your application? Choosing which style is best for an application is determined by the products that are to be unwound, the number of spools or reels, cable size range, line speed, floor space available, as well as budget.
This style has the main advantage of maintaining a clear floor space around the reel, with the ability to roll a reel through the machine. A constant cable center line can also be maintained.
Under Roller Pay-Off
Under Roller Pay-Offs are one of the simplest forms of Pay-Off styles. The reel rotates via dual rotating rollers located beneath it. The rollers can be driven if required.
Fixed Arm Pay-Off
Fixed Arm machines have the reel pivot up off the floor, usually via hydraulics. The reel stays in a fixed position during operation. These are more suitable for lighter reel weight applications.
Fixed Frame Pay-Off
This style is designed to accommodate a single small sized reel. There is no lifting of the reel except for the cone of the pintles raising the reel from the floor.
Cone shaped Flyer Pay-Offs permit the paying off of a bare wire off a driven or non-driven reel prior to the wire travelling into its downstream process.
Multi-station Pay-Offs, usually for smaller sizes, permit a common stand to house multiple spools or reels.
Floor Roll Pay-Off
These machines have the main advantages of maintaining a constant cable centerline along with having a compact frame structure, with the ability to roll a reel through the machine. The machine and reel traverse on floor rails along the ground.
‘A’ Frame Pay-Off
ʻAʼ Frame machines has the main advantages of maintaining a constant cable centerline along with having a compact frame structure, with the ability to roll a reel through the machine. Designed for lighter reel weights, the machine and reel traverse on floor rails along the ground.
