The RS1 is a highly versatile, entry-level REELEX machine capable of winding a very wide range of product types on a single machine.

Equipped with a linear-motor driven variable traverse, the RS1 can create coils from 0-inches wide to as much as 14-inches (35cm) and every width in between.

Coil Size Envelope

The RS1's unique traverse system allows a very large range of product diameters and types to be wound on the same machine. RS1 can accomodate standard or custom-designed mandrels and endforms so that every product produces an optimally-shaped coil. This is especially important for small-diameter products such as building wire or fiber optics requiring narrower than standard profiles.

Custom-designed mandrels and endforms can also be used for specialty product applications such as pneumatic hose, craft products, etc.

Traverse width and center adjustments are made via touchscreen HMI and can be saved per product.

Replacing the D-200 coiler/spooler, the RS1 can be programmed to wind spools or traditional parallel-wind coils via software upgrade.

Designed for use with the MMPO all-in-one payoff/dancer/buffer, the RS1 is a highly-versatile REELEX machine ideal for small-scale manufacturers, distributors, job shops and specialty product applications.

G2 Controls Overview

G2 Controls

The RS1 features the new "G2" REELEX control system, integrating equipment control with troubleshooting, on-screen manual, packaging calculator, multi-language support, product storage, networking capability and more.

Linear Traverse

The heart of the RS1 is a fully adjustable linear traverse. Based on a high-performance linear motor, the RS1 traverse is precision controlled and can be adjusted on the fly or per product.

This allows every product type to be set up for optimal coil size and shape.

Everything You Need

Though capable of receiving product from a variety of upstream equipment, the RS1 is designed to be combined with the MMPO, providing an all-in-one solution for reel payoff, accumulation and tension control.

Stretch Wrap Capable

The automated Stretch Wrap module is available for the RS1 to add additional packaging capability or for product handling purposes.

For low-margin products, shrink and stretch-wrapping options can significantly reduce packaging costs while introducing a fully disposable, lightweight and low-waste package.

In unison with a motorized payoff and buffer/dancer, a RS1 Line can produce up to 30 coils (1,000ft/305m) per hour, or about 500 ft/min (150m/min) offline.

The RS1 is designed for maximum performance use in conjunction with the MMPO. This all-in-one machine is a highly-customizable delivery system that combines payoff, dancer, buffer and accessory components on one frame.

Built for the continuous start/stop cycles of REELEX coiling, the MMPO is designed for heavy duty, cyclic payoff and precise control of reels up to 30 inches (76cm) diameter.


The RS1 is typically equipped with an 8 inch (20.3 cm) collapsible mandrel and 18 inch (45.7 cm) endform set. However, depending on the flexibility and diameter of the product, 4-inch and 6-inch mandrels with 12-inch endforms are available along with a 10-inch/21-inch mandrel/endform set for products with large diameters or bending radii.

The RS1 can also be fitted with custom-build mandrels and endforms specific to product or packaging requirements.

If traditional spooling capability is also required, the RS1 can be programmed to wind linear spools or parallel-wind coils. Coiling head not included.
