Fortis Mining Engineering and Manufacturing Engineers & Fabricates a Unique Reel Winder Trailer

Fortis Mining Engineering and Manufacturing recently completed a job that required both engineering, manufacturing, and fabrication services. Searching for an efficient and safer alternative to transport reels,  Fortis Mining Engineering and Manufacturing was tasked with creating a Reel Winder Trailer to fit specific client needs. 

There are many unique specifications that the client required Fortis Mining Engineering and Manufacturing to adhere to to ensure the success of the Reel Winder Trailer.

The location that the reels were to be moved is very narrow. Therefore, the Reel Winder Trailer had to be engineered to move through this space, while still allowing for the pick up of different sizes of reels from diameter to width. 

The engineered Reel Winder Trailer is narrow and capable of picking up various sizes of reels up to a maximum capacity of 21 tons using hydraulic auxiliary outlets. 

Wire rope, plastic, pipe, and numerous other products that come on a reel can be transported using the Reel Winder Trailer. Fortis Mining Engineering and Manufacturing was able to successfully meet the client's specific and unique needs in order to provide a superior solution for reel transport.

For more information on custom solutions and services, please contact Fortis Mining Engineering and Manufacturing.
