We are proud to announce the completion of the project titled “Implementation of R&D Results for the Introduction of Innovative Cable Drums to the Market.” This project was co-financed by the European Union under the Operational Programme Intelligent Development 2014-2020.

ANDREW s.c., by implementing the project co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund of the EU titled “Implementation of R&D Works for the Introduction of Innovative Cable Drums to the Market,” has developed a new generation cable drum designed for the storage and transport of fiber optic cables.

Our cable drums, with a main disc diameter of 1000 mm, feature:

– An innovative threaded drum core
– Reduced wood moisture to 18%
– Reduced weight to 65 kg
– Reduced main disc thickness to 40 mm
– No need for a centering sleeve plate
– Reduced weight of steel centering elements to 0.52 kg
– Increased cable bending radius on the reel to 100 mm

Eligible Project Costs: 17,805,348.00 PLN
European Union Fund Co-financing: 7,007,670.00 PLN

The production of this type of packaging is a milestone in the history of our company, positioning ANDREW s.c. as a leader and innovator in the field of fiber optic cable packaging. The innovation of the project lies in the unique drum design, which is the result of multi-stage R&D research involving renowned scientific institutions. Our innovative solution stands out for its ergonomics, and safety in packaging, transport, and storage of such cables, which are essential components of telecommunications infrastructure and the high-tech industry. The dedicated fiber optic cable drum project significantly impacts the development of the global wooden packaging industry and its future, based on innovative technologies.
