Tensionless Winding with Automatic Cut and Spindle Transfer
Conair’s ATC dual spindle coilers wind small ﬂexible extrusions with little-to-no friction or winding tension. This eliminates deformities in delicate products making it ideal for extrusions such as ﬂexible tubing, medical tubing, ﬁlled cords and small ﬂexible proﬁles.
The fully automated process transfers the product to the new reel without operator involvement or process disruption.
Best accuracy with servo control
Spindle rotation, traverse motion and spindle speed are all servo driven. This provides the perfect in speed and positioning control for error-free high repeatability and optimum product tension throughout the entire high speed coiling and cut/transfer process. Finished spools require no dial-in for product changeover.
Optimum tension is achieved by an advanced control algorithm that calculates each successive wrap diameter to adjust coil speed and traverse motion relative to the tube size and puller speed. This allows the sonic loop control to perform as a fine-trim device and ensures accurate, distortion-free, error-free lay of each wrap. The following circuit allows automated ramp-up of the winder synchronously with the line at startup.
Recipes cut operator variability/error
Every operating parameter can be saved within a recipe for repeatable production consistency. This includes coil speed changes during cut and transfer, traverse speed for accurate lay and turret speed during changeover to avoid product touching the floor.
