1. Skaltek Midi Pac was developed and

in-troduced in 1987. Midi Pac was developed according to the motto “Better and Less Costly” – a package which can provide max-imum Customer Service with minimal use of resources. A package that is Economical and Ecological.

2. The first Skaltek Midi Pac coiling

ma-chines were a further development of the highly successful carton packing machines (Skaltek Coil Pac). Based on the coiling principle it was necessary to put a PE-strap around each coil to maintain the coil until it had been packed in shrink film. Based on the development of the horizontal dual-head coiling machines in 1999, it was possible to eliminate the PE strap band and cut packag-ing costs with another 25%.

3. Midi Pac is designed with the main focus

on the end-user – the electrical contractor. The shrink film protects the cable from dirt and water and makes it easy to see the color of the cable and how much cable is left in the package. The cable is pulled from the center of the coil, while keeping the packag-ing material until all cable is used.

4. When the cable has been used, there is

only minimal waste. The PE-film can be re-cycled or even burned, as it is a clean plastic which contains a high level of energy.

5. The cable is pulled from the center of the

coil. The packaging material should always be kept around the coil until all cable is used. The inside diameter of the coil is 200 mm, which makes it easy to pull out the cable.

6. The transparent shrink film makes it easy

to see color and type of cable. It is also easy to evaluate the remaining length of cable. The film protects the cable from moisture, dust and dirt.

7. The shrink film makes the coil solid and

sturdy and makes it easy to handle the coil until all cable has been used.

8. The package is an excellent marketing

tool. The shrink film can be printed with a large variety of information: company logo-type, cable logo-type, barcode, and even instruc-tions for use.

9. The cost of packaging material is very

low – approximately EUR/USD 0,05 to 0,10 per coil (depending on print, etc.), which is only about 10–20% of the cost of a carton or 1–5% of a plastic/wooden spool.

PI 22.01

Push your finger tips through the thin shrink film at the center of the coil and grab the inner cable end. Pull!

Keep pulling the cable from the center of the coil. The packaging material protects the cable from dirt and moisture and also preserves the coil until all cable has been used.

After the product has been used, the waste is absolutely minimal and the film can be recycled or burned.

The Optimal Package?

Skaltek Midi Pac

Midi Pac 360 & 400 is suitable for a large range of cable types, both round and flat cables, within an approx. range of 5 – 12 mm. The machine is optimized for high production volumes of building wires, such as the North American flat NM AWG 12, 14 & 16 and round cables 3x1,5 mm2 to 5x2,5 mm2. The Midi Pac coiling machine is very suitable for a large variety of other cable types as well, a

few samples are shown in the picture. (Rubber cables are not suitable in Midi Pac.)

The dimensions of the cable will influence the maximum possible coiling length. Normally cable diameters up to 11,5 mm can be coiled in 100 m lengths.

Please Note! Each coiling application must be analysed and calculated by Skaltek. (The picture shows cables in real size.)

Shrink Film Specifications:

Each Midi Pac Coil is packed in clear, pre-printed PE-film.

• Film material: Low Density Polyethylene, LDPE

• Melt Index: 1

• Film thickness: 0,06 – 0,08 mm (depending on cable type and coil

weight)

• Shrink ratio: Width 40% / Length 60% • Printed top film width:

Coil Diameter + 2 x Coil Width • Unprinted bottom film width: Midi Pac 360: 425 mm (17”) Midi Pac 400: 475 mm

• Shrink film roll diameter: 300 mm (12”) • Approximately two rolls of film are needed

per 8 hour shift Please Note!

The shrink film quality is essential to the machine reliability and the final coil quality.

Basic Vision – Customer Need

PURE – Simplicity – Can it be made Simpler?

Since 1974 Skaltek has continuously been searching for the Optimal Package and focus has been Quality Security Packing Lines with Optimal Customer Value – Future Value. As a natural consequence of the great suc-cess with the new invention of Mini Pac Pure concept, the Skaltek Midi Pac Pure was in-troduced in 2000 and developed according to the same Pure principles. This task was even more demanding for bigger and heavi-er cables, but the benefits and advantages were in proportion.

Coil Packing InLine with extruder demands Optimal Reliability. Focus has been to Purify and Simplify every function. When a compo-nent is removed it can never stop the line! All remaining components are selected under the motto “Only the Best is good enough”.

Main Advantages – Customer Value

• The Skaltek Midi Pac Pure package was made according to Skaltek´s revolutionary invention that eliminates the strap band around the coil. The Package consists of just a shrink film.

• The whole Strapping Unit, or extra equip-ment to hold the coil together, was eliminat-ed. Simplicity – Nothing can go wrong…! • Dual horizontal Coiling Heads with new

Invention for Catch and Cut technique reduced the stand-still time between two coiling sequences to Zero.

• The Pure technique increased constant line speed with a smaller accumulator: lower and constant tension in the cable, which is important for sensitive signal ca-bles and small copper area.

• The entire packing line is compact and saves floor space. The equipment does not require any special foundation. It is quick and easy to install and take into pro-duction.

• Each machine unit has its own intelligence, with an individual PLC. All units communi-cate via MPI connection. All machine are supervised from the Color Touch Screen Panel on the Coiler.

Result – Reward – Return of Investment

Customer Value creates Confidence and loyal Customers – Skaltek has been greatly rewarded: Customers in 57 Countries have, step by step, replaced previous lines with Skaltek PURE.

Many Coil Packing lines (in the US all of

them) are operating directly in tandem with Extrusion lines, 24 hours a day.

Since the introduction of Midi Pac Pure in 2000, the packing line has been continu-ously improved in small steps, based on the experiences from many demanding applica-tions.

“We know that we don´t have the cheapest machines on the market to buy. But prob-ably the most profitable to own? We believe in Quality. We invest in the Futura.”

A New Generation Big Pac 400 Pure is intro-duced at Wire 2010 in Germany.

Reference – Product History

The New Pure machines have been a huge success, with more than 100 Midi Pac lines of the New Generation delivered worldwide.

Basic Product Information

The Midi Pac Pure packaging line includes automatic shrink film equipment, automatic stacking of coils on pallets with automatic feeding of empty pallets from a pallet maga-zine.

A semi-automatic stretch film unit makes it possible to supply pallets directly to distri-bution from the packing line. The line also includes option for label printing and appli-cation.

The Coil Packing Line Skaltek Midi Pac 400 Pure is primarily developed for high output capacity of multi conductor cables, such as 2x1 mm² to 5x2,5 mm², normally packed in 100 or 50 m lengths.

The production capacity is max. five coils per minute (5 x 50 m) or up to 350 m/min

(3,5 x 100 m) with a realistic shift output of 120 km/8 hours shift.

The approximate range of cables is 5 - 12 mm in diameter.

Skaltek Midi Pac 400 Pure is designed with in-line extruder production in mind. This re-quires the best possible Reliability and there-fore MP400 Pure is designed with careful at-tention to simplicity in each detail. It is most common to run the Midi Pac line in tandem with extruder or with driven Pay Off.

Midi Pac 400 Pure is built for pallet size 800 x 1200 mm.

The coil dimensions are:

• Coil diameter 400 mm (O.D.) • Core diameter 200 mm (I.D.) • Coil width 40 – 150 (180*) mm (* Must be analyzed by Skaltek.)
