Alweco offers cable drum with helical groove
18 October 2013
Alweco has designed a new cable drum for pull wire screen systems, so that wear of the pull-wire is limited to a minimum. The Ultra Groove cable drum will be standard on all Alweco screen installations from now on. The newly developed cable drum has a helical groove in which the pull wire is fed in and rolled out. Because of this guide the wire makes no lateral contact, retains its original shape and is always in the right place, resulting in virtually no wear.
An additional advantage of the new Ultra Groove cable drum is the manner in which it may be applied. The cable drum consists of two parts , so that it can be easily mounted on an axis. When installing a new screen installation, the cable drums can be mounted on after the screen system is installed and the Ultra Groove cable drum is also easy to replace when necessary.
