Digitally Controlled Winding System for Optical Fiber, Wire or Capillary Tubing
PROGRESSIVE MACHINE CO, INC. introduces our table top Model "RS 100" winding system for fine, delicate materials. This system features both a spooler and pay off. It can be operated from either a standing or sitting position and places such functions as threading, loading, and unloading easily within arms reach to maximize efficiency.
The conveniently placed control panel offers the digital entry of winding parameters such as package width and material length to optimize accuracy and a state of the art stepper motor
provides pitch control with digital readout in .0001" or 2.5 micron increments.
Speed and tension are managed ultrasonically with a non contact loop detector which provides superior control at minimal tension, 10g-75g. By regulating sophisticated DC drive motors, the system is capable of 600 fpm speeds on a 6" core.
The RS100 is an excellenit choice for rewind or breakdown applications and the Model S100 (spooler only) is frequently used for continuous long spooling applications.
