09 VM - reels

Due to a structured modular principle, our VM/VMV/VMZ reels with diameters from 355–800 mm allow the greatest possible variety of dimension variants and application possibilities as dispatch or process reels.

REEL DESIGNATIONS

Reel designations consist of the series description (VM or VMV, VMZ), the flange diameter, and the total outer width of the reels. We also recommend specification of the barrel diameter (d2) and the winding width (L2).

OUTER WIDTH

The outer width of the reels is normally the winding width (L2) plus 2x the flange thickness (S). If desired, however, in conjunction with smaller central bores hub extensions can also be supplied, which then additionally increase the overall width of the reels.

CENTRAL BORES

The reels have a standard central bore of 127 mm (5 inch) in diameter. Other diameters can also be supplied by means of additional inserts. For various reasons, it has proven to be best to use bore dimensions which are already used in the relevant standards, e.g. 16, 22, 36, 56, 76.4 (3 inch) and 80 mm.

DRIVES

The reels are not fitted with drives as standard. A drive device could engage between the ribs of the flanges, however, this could cause problems with modifications in design and is therefore not recommended. However, reels can also be fitted with plastic or steel pins as drives.

TOLERANCES

All dimensions, weights and loads stated are approximate values; tolerances and deviations which are customary for the industry remain reserved.

Material

Reels in the VM series are made of anthracite coloured polystyrene structural foam (PS TSG). This material has a somewhat streaky surface due to the processing technique. Reels in the VMV- and VMZ series are made of anthracite coloured solid ABS. The properties of the other materials can be found in our material data sheets.

Winding widths

The winding widths given in the table are the most cost-effective. Smaller and larger winding widths can also be supplied. Smaller widths are achieved by shortening the barrel.
