Product Description

High speed twinners are ideal for the manufacturing shield and unshielded pairs up to 5.0mm (0.20 in) diameter with the bow speed of up to 2500 RPM (5000 TPM) and line speeds of up to 600 m/min (2000 ft/min). A digital drive package ensures precise lay control of the finished pair.This line is suitable to assemble with solid HDPE, FEP, FRPE, Foam HDPE and FEP insulations.

The major components of the line include the following:

  • Dual driven payoff or Backtwist Pay-off for LAN pairs
  • High Speed Twinner

Machine parameters are digitally monitored and controlled via a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and a menu driven touch screen so that at each stage the operator is guided to obtain the desired machine operation.
