Global demand for high-quality solar cables has surged with the shift towards renewable energy sources like solar and wind power. Solar energy consumption experienced exponential growth of 22% in 2022, a trend set to continue as countries pursue renewable energy targets. To meet this demand, solar cable manufacturers require adaptable and efficient packaging equipment.
Windak’s AR Series of equipment are single or dual-head, fully automatic spoolers designed for cable and wire products on spools and reels between 216 to 800 mm (8.5″ to 32″) and 800 mm in diameter, with the output up to 2.5 spools per minute. The Windak AR machine accommodates cable diameters from 3 to 20 mm (0.12″ to 0.8″), offering a wide range of reel sizes. The typical ROI for such a spooler is less than 24 months.
