Take-up for Braiding Machine (Servo drive)

The Penguin Servo Braider Take - Up Machine is an attachment to braiding machine. It is required when hose is built on flexible mandrels. The inner layer of rubber lining is extruded on flexible mandrel and is coiled on to supply drums. These supply drum feeds out the hose into the braider. The hose with single or multiple layers of braid over is taken up by the take-up drum mounted on the take-up.

The take up is basically a winder that takes up the hose braided by the braiding machine. It also ensures that the hose is coiled with proper lay of hose on the drum.

Penguin precision hose Let-off, is engineered to ensure controlled unwinding to ensure precise control and user friendly operation of the hose. This is an operator friendly machine with host of features.
