Our range of machinery

Conductor and Cable Covering

These fully integrated production lines, including drum stands and camera control systems, are used in the electrical and power manufacturing industries for high speed application of insulation tapes onto round or flat conductor wires and cable.

Coil Manufacturing and Winding

From freely suspended squirrel turn taping machines for taping together multiple conductors to fully automated multi-axis complex coil winding systems. A wide range of cost effective machines for coil pull-out, forming and loop winding – including narrow coil profiles.

Reinforced Thermoplastic Pipe / Thermoplastic Composite Pipe

Our RTP and TCP taping machines apply layers of reinforcing tape (for example Kevlar and glass) to produce RTP or TCP. Typical uses for these Machines include oil & gas flow lines and water injection systems.

Coil Taping Equipment

We design and manufacture a range of coil taping equipment from suspended hand-held coil taping units for motor and generator coils/bars to taping heads for insulating superconductor coils for projects such as ITER’s TF (toroidal field) magnets.

Umbilical Cables

Our umbilical cable taping machine is designed to apply a variety of tapes to an umbilical cable as it passes through the machine. Our machine wraps an outer ring onto an umbilical cable which can then be deployed in subsea and deep-water environments.

Drum Stands and Ancillary Equipment

We offer a range of pay-off and take-up drum stands with precise layering and tension control designed to meet the needs of all cable and wire manufacturers for all applications. The types of drum stands  available include Gantry, Pintle,  Shaft and Vertical.
