The WILITEC Wireline Spooling Device is designed to provide a complete spooling system for application where a slickline or a braided line or a conductor line needs to be spooled under controlled tension from a standard shipping drum onto the wireline drum or from the wireline unit onto the shipping drum (unspooling).

The tensioning system is very important as we have to monitor the tension during the operation with the Wilitec Winchpad system (data acquisition system installed on the winch) in order to deliver a spooling certificate to the customer.

The spooler is suitable for onshore or workshop operations with the appropriate and separate electrical power source.
