The last tests have been completed and Calmec is ready to announce the launch of a new state-of-the-art CT2 dual strip armouring machine for circuit size building wire cables.The newly created high-production equipment will allow you to save money on material and labour costs while doubling your production speed up to 70 feet per minute.The CT2 is a double pad compact machine that contains 12 inch traverse wound strip coils at each end, and requires half the floor space of 2 conventional lines. Furthermore, unlike the larger 4-pad 2” & 5” CT2 machines, this new model does not require a strip rewinding process.The machine is equipped with a 4–motor spindle drive transmission that runs in complete synchronization with no mechanical gear reducers or variators. It is also worth mentioning that the CT2 dual synchronized tooling assemblies guarantee a centrally produced cable, with no convolution rollers or bearings to replace.Last but not least, the brand-new dual strip armouring machine is supplied with a newly developed recipe storage system and a patent pending slitting tool that easily removes armour ends from the cable.
