Spreader Cable For Vertical Reeling



Low Voltage rubber Flexible Cable for Vertical reeling (VR) Applications

Specially designed flexible cable for power mobile connections, for extremely high mechanical stresses. The cable is used in cable winding reels for winding and unwinding with co-occurrent tensile and torsion stress. Other applications include installation on conveyors, container cranes, harbour cranes, building machinery, handling machines for vertical reeling applications. For use in wet or dry conditions, in industrial units, in underground and open-cast mining, in explosion-risk areas.
