Heavy loads, broad reel range

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 helps in reel logistics.

Single Pay-off & Take-up Drive, Motor & Gearbox Upgrade

Your single Pay-off and Take-up may be down because of an obsolete drive, motor or gear box. Don't keep your customers waiting and let your reputation suffer. Have your process requirements changed; do you need another type of reel, more pulling force or more speed from the equipment?


The traversing Take-up TUT 3 has a hanging pintle portal design. 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 beam. 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 2-step 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 machine price. Further sets can either be ordered from Maillefer or made according to manufacturing drawings, which are enclosed in the manual.

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.

CE approved
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.
