Redesigned spool flange sensing system for winding traverse expands functionality and simplifies operation
The FA-II system saves time by eliminating the need for an operator to adjust the reversal stops on the Uhing traverse. During spool changeovers, it is often the case that a new spool is not placed on the mandrel in the exact same position as the spool being replaced. Normally this means that a worker must readjust the end stops on the traverse to make sure the traverse reverses at the correct points. The FA-II eliminates this step saving time and enabling operators to manage more winding stations which helps boost production.
As an alternative to the standard manually adjustable end stops on Amacoil-Uhing traverse drives, an option is now available for fine adjustment of traverse travel distance.
