SEMI AUTOMATIC RESPOOLING

Shortest Cycle Time thanks to: Shortest Ramp times, Fastest Respooling speed, Limited Downtime.

The POLI series is by no means an icon relating to past markets, but is in actual fact still a standard for quality, excellence and productivity. Today it stands out among its competitors, and compared to data that emerges from research in similar products that come from developing countries, the numerous advantages the POLI offers are obvious.

The POLI can achieve a productivity at least a third higher compared to some emerging market respoolers.

Results based on the same operator spool change-over time and minimum required quality wire and spools characteristics.
* 30m/s top speed – 20s acceleration-deceleration ramps ** 20m/s top speed – 30s acceleration-deceleration ramps

This implies that the same productivity is obtained with 2 POLIs as opposed to 3 of the other machines, 2 operators instead of 3, one less machine to maintain and one third less of the floor- space occupied!

Gimax respoolers have another distinctive feature – since before the turn of the century, these machines have been equipped with systems to recover energy.
The respooling process has continuous moments of acceleration and deceleration.

Thanks to the innovative concepts utilized electronically, it is possible to recover kinetic energy during the moment of deceleration, which generally lasts as much as the acceleration.

POLIDIGITAL SERIES

The “POLI” of respoolers has been manufactured by Gimax since the 1980s and the units are a standard in the industry.

Since this machine made its debut on the market about 40 years ago, Gimax has sold around 1200 and quite a few of the very first ones sold are still in operation.

  • Precision layer and random winding

  • Operator required to start / terminate respooling operation

  • Omron or Siemens control system available

  • Touch screen user interface and ethernet connection

  • Regenerative inverter for energy saving

  • Highest flexibility

OMNI SERIES

The semi-automatic “OMNI” series offers highly increased flexibility and production – the machine handles a large range of wire diameters and spool size.

The line is operator frendly, requires an operator but the number of operations the operator is required to do are limited; load the empty spool and hook the wire, and at the end of the process, cut the wire and hook it to the side of the spool.

The tooling holding the spools or wire baskets can be automatically adjusted electronically to compensate tor any tolerances in the wire diameter. The line is also equipped with a PLC to control all the functions and to signal status of the line or any alarm conditions. Like all Gimax respoolers, one of its main advantages is the capability of automatically detecting any error in the precision winding and to return to a point prior to the error so that it can be corrected.

  • One operator easily handles two machines

  • Automated discharge system for finished spools or coil without interfering with the operators

  • High degree of flexibility, Omni can handle many spool sizes and types

  • Large range of wire diameters

  • Precis1on layer or Random winding

  • Siemens integrated control system with Profinet communication protocol
