Features

EQUIPMENT

  • Base frame made of steel profiles 2 x 30’ with accommodations for container corner fittings (according to DIN ISO 1161)
  • Lockable, soundproof cabin with ventilation system, windshield wipers, seat and control panel
  • Lighting for working in darkness
  • Remote diagnosis via GSM network with GPS modem
  • Winch to reduce the catenary wire length
  • Circumferential railing as fall prevention system

CONTROL SYSTEM

  • HP-ATS, High Precision Automatic Tensioning System (highly precise braking system, allows for tolerances of ± 1 % of the set nominal value)
  • Careful wire installation due to soft start-up and stopping
  • Clearly structured control desk with color display to control the tensioning forces as well as the drive and control units with integrated diagnostic system with USB interface
  • PLC control for optimized productivity and safety
  • ZECK Stringing Data Record System with USB port
  • Electronically controlled drum stand pretension. Continuous pretension independent of drum size and unroll diameter

OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT

  • Diesel particulate filter (DPF)
  • ITS, Intelligent Tension Sustainer (machine temporarily continues tensioning with last set tensioning force in case of failure)
  • Air conditioning for cabin
  • Printer for ZECK Stringing Data Record System
  • Biodegradable hydraulic oil

Special designs on request

BULL WHEEL UNIT

  • 2 individually controlled bull wheel units
  • Each bull wheel with planetary gear and hydraulic motor as completely enclosed drive unit (highly efficient, minimal maintenance)

DRUM STAND

  • 4 drum stands (2 laterally displaceable, 2 fix-mounted) with hydraulic drum clamping system (without drum shaft) for easy handling of the drum, free wheel device directly on the drive
  • Careful catenary installation with lowest wire deflection between drum and bull wheel (< 3°)
  • Individual control of each drum stand, with planetary gear and hydraulic motor as completely enclosed drive unit (highly efficient, minimal maintenance)

WIRE GUIDANCE

  • 2 hydraulically controlled guide arms with large lateral reach: right/left aprox. 4.5 m, height: aprox. 8.5 m (over upper surface of rail), extension possible
  • Individually controlled by radio remote control
