Continually increasing requirements in regard to the manufacture of wire rope has made it necessary to develop better pre-forming systems.
Pre-forming heads with standing rolls have been newly included into the range of products of Witels Albert.
The pre-forming heads are manufactured in different sizes for the different rope diameters and the varying impact lengths; they are uncomplicated and easy to handle through their central adjusting device. These pre-forming heads have been designed to pre-form a strand so that it adopts the shape which is suitable for the lay length or for a range of lay lengths.
Through a patented adjusted transmission with different gear modules on the VG and VR models, the tubing which supports the pre-form disks is moved into the hollow spindle of the stranding machine.
Short set up times improve the operation and optimize flexible use. Different unit sizes cover lay lengths between 10mm (.039”) and 900mm (35.1”)
The preform heads are designed and built in the German tradition of high quality and have a tolerance of 620 DIN.
