Established in 1979, Calmec is a Canadian machinery manufacturer providing tailored Engineered Armouring Solutions. Calmec specializes in process driven equipment for the continuous roll forming of metallic strip, and the application of metallic and non-metallic tapes, to produce flexible conduit and pipes over electrical cables, hoses, and as components of deep sea umbilicalʼs. Calmecʼs innovative tooling strategy provides outstanding results. Tooling is available for a multitude of strip widths and thicknesses. Most importantly Calmec will work diligently with customers to generate tooling best suited to their individual requirements.
The CT2-32 is a smaller 1¼" dual strip machine. This machine is a compact version of the original CT2-50. Its 2-pad, dual strip design will load conventional traverse wound strip packages from both the front and rear of the machine. The new CT2-32 is specifically designed for circuit sized conductors, while producing up to 1¼" interlocked armour.
Calmec CT1 Flexible Armouring Machines are the most advanced armouring machines available. These high speed machines are designed for the production of interlocked armor in a continuous operation. They produce round armoured cables, flat down-well pump or ESP (electrical submersible pump) cables, and interlocked armour & conduit without cables
Calmec has a wide range of take-ups and pay-offs to suit most requirements. From the smaller high-speed spoolers and fixed frame units to the large roll-through bridge type machines.
The last tests have been completed and Calmec is ready to announce the launch of a new state-of-the-art CT2 dual strip armouring machine for circuit size building wire cables.
The newly created high-production equipment will allow you to save money on material and labour costs while doubling your production speed up to 70 feet per minute.
The CT2 is a double pad compact machine that contains 12 inch traverse wound strip coils at each end, and requires half the floor space of 2 conventional lines. Furthermore, unlike the larger 4-pad 2” & 5” CT2 machines, this new model does not require a strip rewinding process.
The machine is equipped with a 4–motor spindle drive transmission that runs in complete synchronization with no mechanical gear reducers or variators. It is also worth mentioning that the CT2 dual synchronized tooling assemblies guarantee a centrally produced cable, with no convolution rollers or bearings to replace.
Last but not least, the brand-new dual strip armouring machine is supplied with a newly developed recipe storage system and a patent pending slitting tool that easily removes armour ends from the cable.
