Spooling guide wheels - Amacoil

The GS Guide System keeps wire or other material being spooled in-line between pay-off and take-up points using guide wheels attached to modular, adjustable arms. The guide works with Uhing traverse drives KI3-15, RG3-15-2, and RG3-20-2 and non-Uhing traverses. The system may be used with tensioning devices such as dancers, but it does not provide tensioning control itself.
All metal parts are stainless steel, and the GS guide wheels are composite with ceramic groove linings. Ten sizes of guide wheels accommodate wire diameters from 2 to 8 mm. Guide-wheel arms come in 4.62, 6.89, and 9.21-in. lengths.
