Cater Pullers

Cater Pullers are used as a means of providing consistent pull of conduit and cables, usually as the product is exiting out of a prior process such as armoring or extruding, or even from a pay-off. They can pull a wide variety of flat or round armor as large as 5" in diameter, and as small as 1/4" in diameter. Our Cater Pullers come with different styles of belts, depending on the application.

Key Features

CALMEC developed Cater Pullers with significant feature benefits including AC Flux Vector Drives, pneumatic compression and tension control.

Display Scaling

CALMEC can provide a meaningful ratio display to suit the application. For example, if conduit or armored cable is run, we can display convolutions per foot/meter of product.

Operator Interface

Our machines have a fully programmable operator interface, which can display any pertinent data, permit electronic gear ratios, and provide display scaling. Length measuring and line speed is also provided.

Reduced Maintenance

The use of a flux vector AC drive system eliminates the higher maintenance DC motor. The only item that ever needs changing is the belt.

AC Flux Vector

On all our latest machines is the insertion of AC Flux Vector Drive technology, comprising of a flux vector AC motor and drive controller. This replaces the traditional higher maintenance DC motor drives.


CALMEC developed and deploys multiple air cushions pneumatic compression and tension in order to provide consistent pressure to the product run through the unit. Both belt compression and belt tension are pressure adjustable to suit the style of belt used and the product being pulled.
