D-750

The D-750 is a single-spindle REELEX coiling machine that has been in production for nearly 20 years. Ideal for packaging from a supply reel or other offline source, the D-750 uses a single operator to cut and package.

Single-spindle offline REELEX packaging since 1999.

With nearly 100 currently in service and in production for nearly two decades, the D-750 has become the standard coiling machine for small to mid-size structured cabling manufacturers around the globe.

Features

Simplified Maintenance

Safety first.

Real-time feedback on the HMI provides the operator with the status of all valves and sensors without having to open the control cabinet, while HMI readouts give feedback on drive and motor performance.

The new G3 control system does away with the numerous circuit boards used in past REELEX equipment, and replaces them all with a single custom-designed Printed Circuit Board (PCB).

HMI Touchscreen Controls

Calculate, save, diagnose, control.

The next-generation HMI control system is standard on all REELEX machines and revolutionizes how REELEX equipment is used.

The high-definition 12-inch touchscreen blends off-the-shelf hardware with unique custom software allowing the integration of equipment control with troubleshooting, on-screen manual, packaging calculator, multi-language support, product storage, networking capability and much more.

High-Performance Buffer

High performance suspension.

The key to creating precise REELEX coils is controlling the tension as the product is wound. Every REELEX machine includes a specially designed extremely lightweight ring-sheave buffer system to maintain even tension and create a precise wind.

All machines come standard with 15″ sheaves for high performance products such as Category 6, 6A and Fiber Optics.

Two-Stage Tension Control

Handle gently.

When used in combination with the G2 or G3 control system, REELEX’s UDA dancers feature HMI-programmable tension control via digital air regulator and high-flow cylinder. This means each product can have their ideal tension control map, helping to mitigate the effects of physical pressure placed on the cable at the crossover point. What does that mean? That means high performance data cables stay high performance, with less physical deformities.

Updated Electronics

More reliability,  more simplicity.

Starting in late 2017, all new D-750s feature the latest G3 control system. Whereas G2 controls were PC-based, the new G3 controls are built from the ground-up using a single Printed Circuit Board (PCB) designed by REELEX for REELEX. This “winding module” control system greatly simplifies the control system, and eliminates the need for multiple circuit boards without sacrificing any features or operational abilities.

Options

EC Compliant Safety Guarding

Options for every level.

REELEX offers several safety options to meet local or corporate requirements. From EU (CE) compliant guarding with automatic shield actuation to pressure mats, the safety guard options are designed to be as unobtrusive as possible.

If physical guarding is too restrictive or otherwise prohibitive, a proximity safety sensor can be installed to immediately stop the machine if a human gets too close while running. Pressure-sensitive mats are also optional which will prevent machine from running when the operator is present.

Stretch Wrap Module

Ready to contain.

Most REELEX machines can be ordered with an automated stretch wrap module which blows plastic stretch wrap film, adds tension and automatically cuts the film. This produces a finished coil that is fully wrapped and is easily handled.

The stretch wrap module is particularly useful for securing stiff, springy or flimsy products that easily can lose coil integrity during handling. Stretch wrap is also useful for securing coils so that they may be packaged at a later stage, or simply to create an extremely low-cost package.

Multiple Mandrel Sizes

The right tools for the job.

Because the inside diameter of the REELEX coil is determined by the mandrel size, the size and characteristics of a product need to be matched to the correct mandrel and endforms so that payout performance is ideal.

Larger, stiffer products are typically wound on a 10-inch (25.4cm) mandrel, while smaller products use either 4-inch (10.1cm) or 6-inch (15.2cm) mandrel sets. Typical mandrel sizes come in 2-inch increments, from 4-inches to 10-inches diameter. 8-inch (20.3cm) mandrels are standard on all REELEX equipment.

Performance

In unison with a REELEX-built motorized payoff and buffer/dancer, a D-750 line will run up to 750 feet (228m) per minute. At this rate, the D-750 will produce up to 40 coils (1,000 ft (305m) length) in an hour depending on operator skill.

Knowledge Base and FAQ

Yes, however you will likely be unable to achieve maximum performance from your REELEX machine. This is because underpowered payoffs spend more time accelerating or decelerating then running at full speed.  To achieve the specified rate of production from your REELEX machine, you must utilize a payoff that is capable of rapidly accelerating and decelerating a supply reel and keep it under control.

If you plan to use a non-REELEX payoff with REELEX coiling machines, the payoff must:

  • Have a four-quandrant regenerative DC drive.
  • Accept inputs from a 1K to 5K Ohm potentiometer signal from the UDA dancer.
  • Be designed for rapid acceleration and deceleration from stop to full speed approximately 30 times per hour.
  • Have adequate power to accelerate a full supply reel from stop to full speed in approximately 10 seconds.
