Our floor traversing pay-offs meet the demands of heavy load carrying capacity and broad reel range due to extending production lengths. Due to its energy saving braking system, the pay-off reduces the overall power consumption of the production line. The frame design allows reel loading by an overhead crane.
The FPO 30 pay-off stand is a portal design floor traversing machine. The machine has two vertical stands with pintles. The stands are connected at the top by a horizontal telescopic shaft. Due to the telescopic function, the machine width is minimized. A separately quoted device is needed to control the traverse movement and the cable angle during the unwinding process.
The reel is rotated either by a tyre or by a carrier arm, depending on the customer need. When the reel is rotated by a tyre, it is pressed against the reel flange with a spring set with an adjustable pressure. The wheel drive eliminates the need for a dog pin and the need to change gears. This allows the load/unload sequence to be automated. If the reel is rotated with the dog-pin and the carrier arm, higher cable tension can be achieved.
Before reel change, the reel diameter can be preset from the control panel to correspond to the next reel diameter. The reel rotation can be either torque controlled with winding radius compensation or speed controlled (dancer, accumulator or external reference). Automatic positioning of the carriage from the loading position to the production position and vice versa can be activated from a button. The full reel moves automatically to the reel change position. The reel is lowered and the pintles are opened. After the pintles have been manually entered into the empty reel, another button is pushed, and the reel is lifted and moved to the working position.
A pair of pintles is delivered with the machine as standard.
Brushless AC motors, contactless proximity switches and solid state electronics increase reliability and ease maintenance.
All functions, like reel rotation, traversing and pintle movements, are activated and controlled either from a hanging panel or from a fixed place. The control panel has push buttons and potentiometers for manual or automatic running and a multilingual information display for machine status, settings and alarms.

Sustainable solutions are not an option anymore, but rather a must. As climate reports repeatedly sound the warning bell, the priority to develop and apply sustainable technology solutions becomes more central in all business models. Today, technology plays a big role in sustainable development in all regards, whether they be social, environmental, or economical. Technologies enable several key aspects, including resource conservation, reuse and recycling, energy efficiency, minimal environmental impact and pollution reduction. Read more
Maillefer has a complete program of extrusion heads which fulfils the needs for pipe & tube manufacturing. Typically proposed in our line offerings, as well as for performance upgrades and component replacements. The TL and ELH longitudinal heads, and the VLCH and ECH crossheads form the four families that cover pipe & tube applications. They respond to a variety of design requirements like single layer or multi-layer, stripe or skin options, co-extrusion or tandem processes, countless adhesives, polymers and elastomers, and special connections and tooling configurations.

The 100th multi-layer PAL line is going to Chinaust and in particular to their facilities in Changchun in northeast China. Factory Acceptance Tests took place during the last days of June 2019 in the presence of a four person delegation led by Li Hongjie, General Manager of Changchun Chinaust. Not only was it the occasion to mark a successful acceptance by the customer, but also to highlight the delivery of the 100th multi-layer automotive tube extrusion line. Indeed, representatives from both companies began plans for celebrating Chinese style once the line ready for production. Read more

Maillefer has recently acquired a Cable Checker unit for our new R&D lab. The unit is essentially a microscope connected to a hot oil bath for high resolution analysis of all parts of the cable. This equipment is particularly suited for inspection of extruded XLPE (cross-linkable polyethylene) insulated Medium, High and/or Extra-High Voltage cable samples. Both trouble shooting and quality control inspection are done with very high accuracy. Read more
