Caterpillar & Capstan Drive & Motor Upgrade

Your caterpillar or capstan may be stopped because of an obsolete drive or motor. Don't keep your customers waiting and let your reputation suffer. Have your process requirements changed; do you need more speed or more pulling force from the equipment?


Belt Caterpillar BCA 12 is a true workhorse of the cable industry. It is used in various insulation and sheathing applications, from building wire to medium voltage cables, and has a robust steel frame. The gripping pressure and the belt tension are pneumatically adjustable. Belts are driven through a gear transmission by an AC motor.

The power transmission includes one speed controlled AC motor directly connected to an angle gearbox. The motor is equipped with an electromagnetic brake.
