SWT Spool Winding Trolley

Spool Winding Trolley


Respool reels without removing them from jack stands.

The BHS Spool Winding Trolley (SWT) saves time and labor in cut-to-length wire distribution applications. Position the unit over a BHS Parallel Reel Payout (PRP), Dyna Reel Platform (DRP), or existing jack stands; an overhead rim drive spins take-up reels of virtually any size to fill them efficiently and safely.

Most spooling and reeling machines (such as the standard Reel-O-Matic* or a Wemco* take-up) require users to remove reels from jack stands for respooling. In contrast, the SWT’s design enables respooling on a wide variety of reel configurations without removing them from stands. Fill cable, wire, and flexible materials directly onto delivery reels without laborious extra steps.

The SWT pays off cables to one or more compartment reels, counting linear footage that passes through a triple-wide encoder wheel. Each revolution pays out 1 foot of cable, ensuring accurate counts, exactly to spec from BIM data; this eliminates waste on every order.

The SWT allows electricians and electrical suppliers to respool reels with multiple conductors in a fraction of the time, reducing ergonomic hazards and providing a dependable ROI.
