Traverse Winding System features closed loop tension control.
Machinery & Machining Tools

Traverse Winding System features closed loop tension control.

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...

Sintering Rolls are electrically heated to 750°F.

Intended for manufacture of PTFE, Sintering Rolls have 500 mm diameter x 380 mm face. Electrically controlled cartridge heaters are placed inside circumference of rolls to provide desired heating profile. Each roll is divided into 3 heating zones for accurate heat distribution within 1% of desired heat setpoint. With temperature feedback from embedded heat sensors, controllers can provide...
