Optical Fiber, Wire and Cable Machinery Refurbishing

TDC can refurbish machinery made by other manufacturers. Shown below is our popular Skaltek payoff and take-up rebuild.  We replace proprietary and outdated controls with readily available Allen Bradley controls that your plant personnel are already familiar with.  In this particular example, we replace relays with a PLC and PanelView allowing much greater control over machine operation than was previously possible in a pushbutton only system.  DC motors are replaced with low maintenance AC and servo motors. A cluttered, packed, and stacked cabinet is transformed into a cleaner, more spacious, and easier to access cabinet. We've rebuilt machinery as diverse as elastic bandage winders to compact disc packaging machines.
