Mono-spiral monster

We have recently built what is believed to be one of the world’s largest mono-spiral motorised cable reels. With a drum diameter of 9.2m, and weighing in at 10,000kg, it is the largest drum manufactured by Cavotec to date.

This extraordinary unit has even prompted the release of a new gearbox specifically for it - the T9.

The unit is part of an order placed by crane manufacturer ZPMC for four complete cable reel sets now installed on cranes at two major ports - one in Asia, the other in Europe.
