Our portal take-ups meet the demands of a heavy load carrying capacity and a broad reel range due to extending production lengths. The frame design allows reel loading from the rear or the front of the machine. Different frame lengths and the possibility to mount on rails helps in reel logistics.
The traversing Take-up TUT 20 has a hanging pintle portal design. The telescopic lifting arms are narrow, allowing good access to the reel when fastening the cable.
The take-up has two main components: the portal frame and the traversing carriage. The telescopic lifting arms are suspended from the moving carriage, which is wheel mounted on the beams. All pintle movements, up-down and in-out, are motorized.
The carriage traverses during operation to maintain a straight centerline of the cable entering the reel. The traversing pitch and turning points can be set by hanging control panel push-buttons.
The reel is dog-pin driven by a Vector controlled AC motor over a gearbox. The main motor can be run with a constant torque, or controlled by either a dancer or an accumulator. The motor has a forced ventilation and is equipped with an electromagnetic brake. The brake can function as a holding brake or an emergency stop brake. One set of pintles is included in the basic machine. The guide rollers are suspended from the portal frame. The rollers can be easily adjusted for different cable diameters.
All functions, such as reel rotation, traversing, pintle movements and auto reel handling, are activated and controlled from the hanging control panel.
The take-up beam is long enough to allow the carriage to traverse over the reel width.
Automatic positioning of the carriage from the loading position to the production position and vice versa can be activated by pressing a button. The full reel moves automatically to the reel change position. The reel is lowered and the pintles are opened. After the pintles are manually entered into the empty reel, a second button is activated, and the reel is lifted and moved sideways to the working position.
The machine is surrounded with safety fences to protect the operator and outsiders from the moving and rotating parts of the machine. The manually operated turning doors on the rear and the sliding door on the front of the machine are equipped with electromechanical locks. The main motor and the automatic functions cannot be started before all the doors are closed and locked.
The machine fulfils all EEC machine and electrical directives and is equipped with CE and EC Declaration of Conformity labels.

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
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
