Take-up frames

with suspended, rotating capstans


  • designed for coiling resp. drawing and coiling of all kind of steel wires
  • suitable for installation behind continuous furnaces with wire coating plants
  • wire take-up either on carriers or in barrels
  • continuous operation without stop of coiling process during change of carrier or barrel, if necessary by use of an intermediate collector

Mechanical design features

  • Housing made of strong welded structural steelwork
  • Structural segments for 3 capstans each
  • Coiling capstans designed as V-grooved or cylindrical capstans, the latter with one or two press rolls
  • Combination of V-grooved and cylindrical capstans for extension of application range (option)
  • Combination of different sizes of V-grooved capstans to enable use of carriers or barrels of different sizes (option)
  • Eccentrically arranged turntable with separate drive for take-up of carrier, thus achieving coils with rosette laying (option)
  • Combination of single or all V-grooved or cylindrical capstans with drawing die holder and lubricant box for drawing with soap or liquid lubricant (option)
  • Use of standardized drive units to achieve a progressive technical standard and an advantageous ratio of price and performance.

Electrical design features

  • Infinitely variable AC drive by frequency control
  • Use of “Micromaster” units made by SIEMENS for speed control of capstan and turntable
  • Stored-program computer control SIMATIC S7 with
  • separate operator panel OP at each capstan for individual adjustment of drawing resp. coiling speed etc.
