DRUM PACKING

INF SERIES

Gimax drum packers will coil welding wire in drums so that when it is drawn out of the drum it is torsion-free (no-twist) complying with the needs of robotised welding equipment.

Revolutionary concept – drum remains at floor level so:

  • Vibrator is more effective in settling wire in drum

  • Easier to inspect drum during operation

  • Easier to thread wire through machine

  • Easier to carry out maintenance

  • Compact design for low space occupancy

  • Different types of drums (round or other forms, with or without pallet incorporated)

  • Extractor for effortless drum removal

  • Siemens control system

  • Touch screen user interface and Ethernet connection

  • Video camera 7 inch to see inside drum during operation

INF2: FLEXIBILITY

The INF-2 is a no-twist drum packer for medium speed applications (where high speed is either not required or possible), designed to match reliability with flexibility.
With its standard flyer it can use drums with or without a central core.

INF4: HIGH SPEED

The INF-4, by far the fastest and most productive no-twist drum packer today, can easily reach a top speed of over 30 metres per second. Revolutionary flyer design means that drums must be without central core.

INF6: NO TWIST PACKING OF SUB ARC WIRE

The INF-6 is specifically designed for use with large diameter wire and its use will simplify the extraction of the wire from the drum.
Small diameters are possible with limitations in speed.
This will make it easier and particularly more economical for the end-user as there is no need for a turntable to do this.
