Abstract

See full text

A payoff ring constructed from high density polyethylene includes a beveled inner circumference that guides ductile wire, such as aluminum welding wire, from a coil packaged in a box-like container. The body of the payoff ring is fashioned with holes or cavities that significantly reduce the weight of the payoff ring by up to 50% of the overall weight. The payoff ring floats freely in the box-like container and guides the wire as it is being withdrawn from the container while not distorting the wire. The outer configuration of the payoff ring is constructed to engage to the sides of the container thereby preventing the payoff from rotating during use.
