utoreel’s range of Gantry style Take-ups and Payoffs has been specifically developed for use on process lines and heavy duty despatch applications where the requirement is for an efficient system with a high duty rating. The GWS range consists of pay-offs and take-ups, which come in a variety of sizes and types. We can also fit client-specifiedmotors, gearboxes and drives. The three frame designs are:
Fixed – These are the standard units either take-up or pay-off (powered and un- powered).
Wide Gantry – These units have a wider gantry with the facility to move the drum within the frame. This allows for automatic drum layering for the take-ups that maintains the product in a straight line as it is reeled onto the drum. The pay-offs are fitted with automatic de-traversing which has the reverse effect.
Moving Gantry – These machine are the same width as the fixed units but are mounted on rails. This allows for lateral movement giving automatic traversing and de- traversing.
