Abstract

See full text

A retainer for controlling the payout of wire from a wire container is described. The retainer has at least three segments. Each segment is connected to the adjacent segment so as to allow a relative movement of adjacent segments with respect to each other. The entirety of the segments form a contact surface adapted for contacting the wire contained in the wire container. Further, a wire container is described having a reception space for a wire coil, a wire coil arranged in the reception space, with the wire forming an annular end face of the wire coil from which the wire is withdrawn from the wire container, and a retainer for controlling the payout of wire from a wire container.
