Motor driven cable reeling drums

Our motor driven reeling drums offer the perfect solution for a huge range of heavy duty applications requiring the automatic payout and retraction of larger cables.

Simbal’s range of spring operated cable reeling drums is extensive, but there will always be applications that cannot be satisfied by such products. Motor driven cable reeling drums are perfect for ship to shore cranes, container cranes, gantry cranes, water treatment bridges and environmental engineering plants.

We can supply drums in a range of sizes, suitable for use with various cable sections and payout lengths in excess of 1km. Reels are available with electric or hydraulic drive motors, suitable for both indoor and outdoor installation, and designed to cope with the most arduous applications such as continuous duty cycles.

There are also hundreds of variations available to suit almost every application. Standard additions for Simbal’s motor driven cable reeling drums include anti-condensation heaters, limit switches and tight/slack cable switches. A range of ancillary items including roller guides and turnover anchors is also available.

As always, our expert staff are on hand to answer your enquiries and find the perfect product for you. Contact our technical sales staff on 01298 813883, at, or place your order directly through our website.
