MTU (Moving Take-up Unit)
The spool on a Moving Take-up Unit (MTU) is carried by a traversing system as it rotates. As a result, the material travels in a straight line onto the spool. This design minimizes stress and twisting and is ideal for delicate flat wire or strip materials. The system also potentially produces a neater wind. Showmark offers the MTU-Mini, Medium, and Max for spools up to 30 inches in diameter, 15 inches wide and weighing up to 300 pounds. The systems shown includes a length counter/controller and an electronic slip clutch system for tension control. Mini and Medium versions with the CE-Mark option include an electrically interlocked safety enclosure.
