This Coil Winder uses a 2-camera vision system to wind fine filaments around a spinning mandrel and produce micro coils with 1, 2, 3 or up to 12 filars. After the coils are produced they are used for medical and electronic products.
Intravascular catheters and electrodes are the primary products but the ability to handle different tensions on each filar enable the machine to produce everything from motor coils to heating elements.
Anytime a small coil is needed, this machine can produce it.
The precise control of all process variables is increasingly important, as the materials get smaller. Programmable wind tensions of less than 1 gram and wind angles of less than 1 degree require the use of control systems that were not previously associated with coil winding. The unique use of machine vision to measure wind angle without touching the filament and state-of-the-art control systems makes this the most precise machine ever. The adjustable tailstock allows use of variable length mandrels.
By improving the accuracy of all controlled parameters, this machine can increase productivity through reduced rejects and faster wind speeds. The programming is flexible to allow new products to be made with the same machine. With the availability of better technology, product designers are finding they can build better products.
