Reels

Sequentially Printed Cable Reel shows accurate wire length.

True Sequential Footage(TM) cable reel uses footage mark to document remaining wire, beginning with zero at bottom of reel and ending with finished length at top. This mark allows for identification of re-order point and ultimately controls end-of-reel scrap. Precision is ensured with use of Doppler lasers, and unit's non-contact capabilities allow for zero slip and zero wear.
