This strander is designed for the stranding of fiber optic ribbons with precise tension control. Line component parameters are set and controlled from main operator HMI touch screen. The path of the material is precisely guided. Each position is equipped with an extremely low friction, pneumatic pre-loaded dancer arm that maintains the preset tension during the process. Speed reference to individual spindle drives ensure the preset tension is maintained throughout the run. This design is available to accommodate a wide range of reels to suit fiber length required.
