Stable line speed, high pulling force

Our belt caterpillars ensure the stability of line speed and are highly reliable in long runs as well as with high pulling forces. The stable line speed minimizes cable diameter variations.

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?

Description

Belt Caterpillar BCA 30 is a true workhorse of the cable industry. It is used in various insulation and sheathing applications, from medium voltage to high and extra high voltage cables.

It 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.

Technical characteristics

Cable diameter, max. 180 mm
Cable diameter, min. 10 mm
Pulling force, max. 45 kN
Line speed, max. 50 m/min
Gripping length 3000 mm
Pressing force at 5 bar 39 kN
Dimensions L x W x H 4240 x 1150 x 1655 mm

Exact values depend on the assembly.

Options

  • Air conditioning
  • Compressed air reservoir
  • Compressor
  • Vertical installation

Multipurpose Lines Help Lead the Way for PP Cable

28.2.2020

One of the new trends in power cable manufacturing is the rise of PP (polypropylene) based thermoplastic materials for the medium voltage application. Currently, these cables are predominantly XLPE and rubber, but now advances in material development make it possible to also consider thermoplastics. Read more

Run Times Reach New Heights

26.2.2020

The performance of extruded high voltage XLPE insulated cables is improvable by reducing the degassing burden and realizing longer extrusion run times. Development towards those goals was rendered possible after years of close technical collaboration with material suppliers and cable manufacturers. Read more

Astonishing Curing Calculation for Flexible Factory Joints

29.1.2020

Flexible vulcanized joints (FVJ) also known as flexible factory joints are typically used in extending delivery lengths of extruded subsea cables. Lengths of XLPE insulated cable core are often limited by the capacity of extrusion, degassing or basket lay-up. Factory joints overcome these constraints. Read more

Composite Pipe Production Doubled without trouble

22.1.2020

Since two decades, Maillefer has been providing production systems for manufacturing multi-layer composite pipe with diameters ranging from 14 to 32 mm and from 16 to 63 mm. Today, our two model lines, the PCL32 and PCL63 that cover the two size ranges have evolved much. We are closer to 60 m/min, which first presented serious challenges to polymer and aluminum tape suppliers. Read more
