Dual Motor Super Power Pushers move cable drums effortlessly through the production line at Tele-Fonika Kable S.A.
Tele-Fonika Kable S.A. invest in three Nu-Star High Torque Cable Drum Pushers to improve workplace safety and factory productivity.
Tele-Fonika Kable S.A. are a leading European manufacturer of cables and wires, operating globally, supplying some of the largest companies in industries ranging from telecommunications to mining.
The expansion of the Tele-Fonika operations across eight production plants and increasing changes to health and safety regulations prompted Tele-Fonika to review workplace safety and efficiency when moving cable drums.
As part of the production of wire and cables, large cable drums up to 60 tonnes need to be moved through the production lines. Tele-Fonika contacted Nu-Star’s Polish distributor to find a solution for pushing cable drums in a safe and easy way to reduce manual handling.
Bartosz Sowiński, Nu-Star’s Polish distributor explained, “In order to push heavy cable reels, a high starting torque is required to overcome rolling resistance, therefore I recommended a free demonstration of Nu-Star’s High Torque Dual Motor Super Power Pusher electric tug.”
The Dual Motor Super Power Pusher is powered by two 1.5kW electric motors generating up to 17,600N of pushing force. The machine is equipped with a special roller application for moving both cable drums and paper rolls. The use of electric motors provides the additional benefit of the absence of smoke and fumes in the factory.
After the demonstration of a drum pusher, Stanisław Wajs, Head of Maintenance Services at Tele-Fonika Kable said, “The Nu-Star Dual Motor Super Power Pusher tug seems quite unique in the market, it’s very durable and generates enough power to easily push our largest cable drums. Compared to other solutions, such as forklifts, the electric tug is a much smaller and cheaper solution to move heavy industrial loads. The Nu-Star electric tug is extremely easy-to-use and much safer than attempting to manually move the reels.
After positive feedback from our employees on the production floor, we invested in three Dual Motor Super Power Pushers. The Nu-Star electric tugs have revolutionised the efficient and safe movement of cable drums through-out our production lines, reducing labour costs of tasks that would normally require at least two members of staff.”
