In the SHO series reels, winding torque is provided by one or more parallel design spring motors. The TMR Series Reels utilize a small toque motor/gear reducer to drive the spool. Both SHO and TMR Series Reels are available with either random wrap or monospiral wrap spools. Gleason SHO/TMR reels have retrieve capacities of 350 feet of electric cable at a velocity of 150 ft./min and acceleration of 1.0ft./sec/sec.

Gleason Series "WB" Cable Reels without Slip Rings
Series WB Cable Reels Series "WB" Cable Reels are continuous contact reels designed for applications such as communication where any impedance must be avoided. Because WB-Reels use one continuous length of cable, there is no break from current source to consumer and that means complete preservation of transmission integrity. This transmission integrity makes WB reels ideal for use with fiber optic cable. Models available for 30' to 120' of cable.

Gleason Vari-Matic Drive Reels
Varimatic drive cable reels

The Gleason VARI-MATIC drive provides a reliable solution to the challenge of retrieving and unwinding long lengths of valuable cable at the demanding cycle rates of today's advanced machinery. Vari-Matic Reels are available with level-wind or monospiral spools.

Level Wind reels provide best management of long cables and have demonstrated through years of use to be the safest and most reliable way to handle long lengths of large cable. By winding a single layer of cable horizontally on a generous drum diameter, the cable experiences minimum flexing and is exposed to maximum cooling, should that be a concern. Equipment speeds can be slow, moderate or high with equally good performance.

Monospiral reels provide best low reel mounting and are designed to stack cable in a single, multiple layer vertical configuration. They are the solution to applications involving large cables where lateral space may be limited. This narrow spool design, together with proven VARI-MATIC drive reliability, makes monospiral reels ideal for service in any demanding environment. Monospiral reels are available for low, medium or high speed requirements. The monospiral design allows the reel itself to act as a cable guide.

Gleason Cable Guide Assemblies
Level-Wind Cable reels

Cable Guides for changes of direction. When designing a cable guiding system allow sufficient distance between any direction changes. The recommended distance should be a minimum of 20X the cable OD and even longer for speeds greater than 300 fpm. Implementing this design will extend cable life by giving the cable's "memory" an opportunity to shed torsion before making another change in direction.

The radiused roller guide consists of muliple rollers mounted in a housing designed for uni-directional or bi-directional cable payout and retrieval. The individual rollers move independently of one another reducing torsion build-up in the cable.
