Truck Mounted Cable Reeler
TEAM designed and fabricated a Truck Mounted Cable Reeler for BMC South Walker Creek. We worked with Macs Engineering to fit out the truck to be in compliance with Mine Safety Requirements.
Our scope of work covered the design, supply, manufacture, protective treatment, installation on a Volvo FM7 6x4 Rigid Cab Chassis Truck and testing and commissioning off site.
Reeler basic specifications
Capacity: 330m x 130mm diameter Dragline Trailing Cable (25kg per metre)
Line Pull: 20kN maximum on the inner wrap (hydraulically limited)
Hub Inner Diameter: 2500mm (Drum Radius = 9.6 x Cable Diameter)
Reel Outer Diameter: 3600mm
Hub Width: 1800mm nominal
Reeler Width: 2500mm
Full width rear snub roller mounted on the reeler pod.
The indexer will be driven from the main reel and promote level reeling of the cable on the main drum.
The indexer will be complete with side and upper and lower guide rollers.
The indexer will automatically reverse when one wrap of cable has been retrieved.
The indexer will be bypassed when laying cable out from the drum.
The indexer will allow the cable to be captured and released after the cable connector is located on the drum.
