Multi Position Pivoting De-Reeler Drum Stand

The sixteen drum pay off drum stand features 16 separate cantilevered drum shafts, each with twin bearing units, mounted in a steel frame. The number of drum positions can be configured to suit individual customer requirements.

The drums are mounted to the drum shafts by means of tapered cones to accept a range of drum bore sizes. These drum shafts also carry the back tension brake – tension adjustment for each drum is provided via a cylinder connected to a lever valve and a pressure regulator.

The steel frame is in turn fixed to a front and rear support structure, with a bearing system that enables the drum frame to rotate through 180 degrees. Rotation is via a motor and drive system, controlled from the operator’s control panel located adjacent to the drum stand.

For safety reasons the drum stand rotates at low revolutions (10rpm typical) and rotational operation requires constant two handed operation.

The system is designed to rotate 180 degrees in one direction then back again, enabling a transposition turn to be put into a wound loop.
