Past REELEX Machine Designs

REELEX Packaging Solutions is fully committed to supporting all of our older machinery. From the W-250 to D-510, we do our best to keep our machines running; some as long as 25 years or more.

D-200 Coiling/Spooling Machine


D750The D-200 is the smallest and most affordable coiling machine that REELEX Packaging Solutions manufactured. Designed for maximum versatility, the D-200 can wind both REELEX coils and conventional spools. Unlike other REELEX machines, the D-200 does not require any external ancillary equipment as the D-200 includes a payoff, buffer/accumulator and coiling/spooling head all on one frame.

The D-200 is also unique in that instead of signing a typical license agreement with REELEX Packaging Solutions, this machine features a unique "pay per coil" patent royalty payment system. The D-200 can produce 10-20 coils per hour at a fixed per coil royalty paid in advance in increments. The D-200 is an ideal machine for small manufacturers or distributors which do not require full-time production of REELEX coils.

D-200 Features


Payoff Mounted on Frame

The D-200 includes everything needed for repackaging cable. The included payoff system can handle supply reels up to 600 lbs.

Spooling Capability

The D-200 has the ability to wind both REELEX coils and traditional spools. Ideal for small manufacturers or distribution houses, the D-200 allows companies to have maximum capability on one frame.

Tension Control

The key to creating precise REELEX coils is controlling the tension as the product is wound. Every REELEX machine includes a specially-designed ring-sheave buffer system to maintain even tension and create a precise wind. All buffers are now upgradable to 15" sheaves for high performance products such as Category 6, 6A and Fiber Optics.

The D-510 is a single-spindle coiling machine designed for offline REELEX® packaging. The D-510 will coil 20 to 30 REELEX coils per hour at 500 RPM. The D-510 is no longer in production, but is available as a fully refurbished REELEX machine, and thus has the same one year warranty as new equipment.

As a precursor to the higher-speed D-750, the D-510 is an ideal match for companies just starting with REELEX, or for manufacturers requiring flexibility over speed. The D-510 is a dependable REELEX coiling maqchine that is simple to work on and easily adjustable to suit different products.

The D-510 features a push-button controlled outer endform which is removed pneumatically when the coil is completed. This machine also uses the same electronics and software as the D-750, and will thus wind REELEX coils with the similar precision and adjustability.

An external buffer (BDA-31) is included with the D-510, as one is not directly mounted to the machine. A motorized payoff and UDA (Universal Dancer Accumulator) manufactured by REELEX Packaging Solutions is also recommended for optimal performance, but may be purchased elsewhere.

D-1000 D510

The D-1000 is a precursor to the D-1500. A dual-spindle REELEX coiling machine, the D-1000 featured two spindles atop one another. As one spindle was winding, the other spindle held a finished coil.

The D-1000 was the first REELEX machine capabile of online packaging, and was the first to feature a cutter and grabber system.

Today there are several D-1000s still operating in the field, however they have largely been replaced by the faster D-1500.
