Traverse Winding System features closed loop tension control.

February 26, 2014

Operating inline with existing process, 4-position SMARTWINDER-XL™ supports flat wire speeds to 1,000 fpm. Spools move under fixed input of material to eliminate skewing and ensure wire maintains lateral position from process to spools. For level winding, each position has computerized microprocessor-based electronic traverse for pitch, stroke length, and end dwell. All traverse adjustment settings are accessed through Panel View Touch Screen with SMARTWINDERS™ software. Read More

Wire Payoff increases worker safety and productivity.

April 5, 2013

By eliminating need for heavy, cumbersome spools, SIMpull® CoilPAK™ payoff enhances productivity and safety for electrical contractors installing branch circuit wiring. Process used by workers to coil NoLube® SIMpull THNN® wire, contained in sturdy yet lightweight package, provides completely tangle-free pull. Inertia-free pulling facilitates operation, and package with molded carrying handle can lay flat or be stacked directly on floor/lift when wire is being pulled. Read More

Flange Detection System utilizes laser sensor technology.

October 16, 2012

Operating with straight or tapered flange spools, PLC-controlled FA-II eliminates need to adjust reversal stops on Uhing traverse. Laser sensor mounted to traverse continually references distance from spool core to highest point that wire or other material will be spooled. When sensor detects spool flange, reading is not within acceptable variance and signal is sent to pneumatic cylinder which reverses traverse. System accepts materials with round cross-sections and diameters from .004–.079 in. Read More
