Puller-tensioners

Hydraulic Puller-Tensioner AFB506
  • The machine is suitable to string one or two ropes or bundled conductors with two pairs of bull-wheels with completely independent controls.
    The bull-wheel grooves are made of wearproof nylon sectors.
    The machine is completely electronically controlled.
    Note: The machine is also available with bull-wheel grooves made of wearproof heat and chemically treated steel (AFB516).

    HYDRAULIC TRANSMISSION

    2 closed hydraulic circuits for stepless speed variation in both rotating directions.
    This machine is provided with 2 pull presetting systems that maintain the pre-set pulling value (also when the speed is reduced to “0”) by automatically adjusting the operation speed according to the friction and unexpected loads which may occur.
