The MacArtney portfolio of winch and handling systems includes the CORMAC B range of basic cable reels.

CORMAC B comes with a manual drive as a standard but is also available with hand crank or electric motor drive. The reels are easily modifiable to accommodate a variety of tasks and applications. Further adding to the flexibility of CORMAC B reels, all systems are designed to be lightweight and portable.

CORMAC B reels are primarily used on vessels, barges or rigs to store deck cable under harsh maritime conditions. With frames and drums manufactured from either stainless steel or aluminium, the cable reels are rugged, highly durable and require very little maintenance.

Beyond cable storage, applications for MacArtney CORMAC B reels include the handling of basic
inspection class ROV systems, underwater camera systems, general oceanographic instrumentation, diver communication lines and general marine instrumentation.

CORMAC B reels hold the capacity to store several types of cable typically with a diameter of 8 to 25 mm and a length of up to 1,700 metres - depending on cable diameter. Last but not least, CORMAC B reels are
prepared for the integration of a Focal model 180 electric/-electro-optical slip ring.
