Within automation, the take-up is used to rewind strip material from a reel to reel and roll to roll (R2R) electroplating system, cleaning system, or similar apparatus. The single disk horizontal-style take up system is configured with a single disk mounted horizontally to allow the strip material to be operated in the vertical plane.
- Dual take-up system—the payout system unwinds strip material into a R2R electroplating system, cleaning system, or other similar apparatus. This horizontal style system has two separate disks mounted horizontally that allow the strip material to be operated in the vertical plane and giving the operator a second, full reel already loaded when the first reel becomes empty.
- Power take-up system—This single-disk horizontal style system allows the strip material to be operated in the vertical plane. Primary reel control is accomplished through an SCR-type DC motor speed and torque control. The controller can be operated in either the speed or torque mode. A start/stop switch and LED indicator lights for “Power On”, “Stop”, and “Overload” are included. A speed trim pot is also provided.
- Dual power take-up system—This vertical-style system has two separate disks mounted vertically, allowing the strip material to be operated in the horizontal plane, and giving the operator a second empty reel already loaded when the first reel becomes full. Primary reel control is accomplished through a loop sensor or dancer arm (not shown). Each of these methods will continuously maintain a loop in the strip material. Optional low material warning sensors are available to alert the operator when a disk is nearly full. Non-powered paper payout disks with interweave are included.
