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.

As the biggest plastics event took place in Germany, the question of where we stand in terms of sustainability has grown in importance. Where to begin? Maillefer looked at different functions within its organization and surprisingly realized that certain progress has been made. Read more
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

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
