Guide System Helps Assure Smooth, Even Spooling

Aston, PA, August 2010 – The Amacoil/Uhing GS Guide System helps assure smooth, even spooling by
keeping the wire or other material being spooled in-line between pay off and take up points. The GS
system consists of guide wheels attached to the end of adjustable arms. The guide is available for
Uhing traverse drive models KI3-15, RG3-15-2 and RG3-20-2 and may also be used with non-Uhing

Guide wheel arms connect to each other in a modular fashion permitting combinations of
multiple arms, although normal use is with two arms only. The angle of the guide arms relative to
each other is fully adjustable which provides added flexibility in set up. The GS system may be
used with tensioning devices such as dancers, however, the GS itself does not provide tensioning

All metal parts are stainless steel and the GS guide wheels are composite with ceramic groove
linings. Ten sizes of guide wheels are available accommodating wire with outside diameters of from
2 to 8 mm (.079″ to .315″). Three guide wheel arm lengths — 4.62″, 6.89″ and 9.21″ — meet most
needs for spooling thin to medium gauge materials. The GS guide is assembled before shipping and
lists for about $250 depending on what sizes of guide wheels and guide wheel arms are selected.
Individual parts are also sold separately upon request.
