Manufactured Products



IWM has been building Cable Reels for the following Drill and Shovel OEM’s, since 1973, with over 850 units built for Bucyrus Erie, Marion, Caterpillar, Ingersoll Rand, Atlas Copco, P&H, and Joy Global. IWM also provides direct sales of Cable Reels and spare parts to the end user.

Our Electric Cable Reel is designed and manufactured by IWM. We offer a large variety of diameter-to-length ratios which vary depending on the machine application and how much trailing cable is required for the reel to hold.

The Cable Reel stores two layers of cable, minimizing induction heating. The power collector rings are affixed externally for ease of accessibility and can be serviced or repaired without removing the cable from the reel. The reel is driven through chains and sprockets powered by a hydraulic motor, in turn, driven by an electro-hydraulic power package. Also available are pneumatic driven Cable Reels.
