The cable length is variable from 100 (328’) to 1000 m (3.280’) and the winding speed reaches 450 m/minute (1.480 fpm).
The production per hour reaches 18 reels of 1000 m (3.280’) lengths wrapped with stretch film, labelled and palletized, all in automatic mode.

The operator assigned to these lines needs only to perform the following tasks:

• Change the pay-off bobbin;
• Manually fill up the reel storage facility;
• Replace the exhausted bobbin of stretch film or auto-gluing film;
• Replace the label roll;
• Fill up the automatic pallet storage facility;
• Choose the recipe according to the cable that has to be packaged.

So, the operator’s main task is the careful supervision of the line to ensure the automatic process is performed quickly and without any problems.
