The D-1500 is a dual-spindle REELEX coiling machine suitable for both online and offline high-speed coiling. Equipped with automatic cut-and-transfer between spindles, the D-1500 can run continuously up to 1,500 fpm (450mpm).
Cut and transfer in under 5 seconds.
The D-1500 is equipped with a mandrel transfer system which allows for continuous winding.
When one coil is finished, the product is automatically cut, and brought over to the second mandrel. This capability allows the D-1500 to operate online with an extruder at up to 1,500 feet per minute (450mpm).
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.
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.
More simplicity, less footprint.
Starting in 1Q19, all new D-1500s 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.
Two-Stage Tension Control
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.
A firm gentle grasp.
The new AR6 anti-reverse design eliminates multiple bend points by clamping the cable via soft, high-grip belts. These belts use even, distributed pressure and eliminate pinch-points. The AR6 design is ideal for high-performance twisted-pair cables, fiber optic cables, slick-jacketed products and solid-conductor wires.
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.
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.
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.
Online, and in unison with an AC-300 accumulator, the D-1500 will run up to 1,500 feet (457m) per minute producing up to eighty 1,000 ft (305m) coils in an hour. Offline, the D-1500 will produce 30 to 50 coils per hour depending on payoff speed, reel size and operator skill.
