Core Slip Rewinding System provides constant coil tension.

September 20, 2004

Slip Tech system consists of core winding surface made entirely of bearings, which reduce friction between core surface and winding drum. This eliminates excess tension in individual rewound coils during build up, resulting in ability to maintain consistent coil tension because each strip is independently tensioned from core to finished coil OD. Product can also eliminate need for looping pits in some applications. Read More
