introduction of the Model 300DT:
At the past
the transformer winding industry trade show in Chicago, we
introduced the latest addition to our line of special coil winding
machines, the "Dual Traverse"
The machine is based on our MET300 series of heavy duty winding
machines with the addition of two separate wire guides and
traverse systems. Each traverse system is driven by its own
brushless servomotor and lead screw. The "Dual Traverse" is
capable of guiding two separate wires of different sizes
simultaneously. This allows both the primary and secondary of a
transformer to be wound at the same time thereby cutting the cycle
time virtually in half. The spindle is available with a belt drive
or gear box transmission and a brushless servomotor. It is capable
of pulling from 50 to 8 AWG. The machine comes with the
multi-media graphical user interface software.
for discontinued Meteor winding machines:
We now provide control conversions and support for
all Meteor coil winding machines. The
benchtop winder is greatly improved with an MCS1 control
conversion including brushless servomotors and the
option. The Model
multi spindle winder is greatly improved with an MCS4 control
conversion. It too receives brushless servomotors in place of
stepper motors. New life for these robust machines is available
with continuous support from MCS.
introduction of the Model 300TFM:
At the past
Electrical Manufacturing and Coil Winding Expo 2000,
the coil winding industry show in Cincinnati, we introduced the
latest addition to our line of heavy duty coil winding machines,
The machine was designed to fit between the heavy duty benchtops
and the large floor model machines. The spindle is available with
a belt drive or gear box transmission and a brushless servomotor.
The traverse uses a brushless servomotor to drive a zero backlash
lead screw. It is capable of pulling from 50 to 8 AWG. The machine
comes with the
multi-media graphical user interface software.
MCS4 PC based control utilizes a single built in Pentium based computer, eliminating multi-computer communication errors. The control runs on Windows XP with “Coil Pro” software to create a graphical user interface with full multi-media. The multi-media feature uses audio, video and graphics to instruct and train operators. Now with multi-level security and scheduled maintenance warning indicators. Update virtually any brand of winding machine up to 16 axes. The control is also fully network compatible and upgradeable via the Internet.
New “Unwind” feature: All MCS controls with foot pedal control now have an “Unwind” feature to back up the spindle. This is done while decrementing the turn count and moving the traverse in reverse. It allows a minor mistake to be corrected in a complex hand wound coil.
“Electro Guide” programmable wire guided traverse: Use Electro Guide to upgrade or eliminate messy, noisy and temperamental hydraulic winders. Easily wind difficult precision wound perfect layer coils. Electro Guide is an attachment for the MCS1 Control with Servo X Axis used on the Model 115EG Bench Winder. Since the Electro Guide feature is fully programmable it may be enabled or disabled as required in any wind. Standard pitch traverse is always available including spiral pitch.
Fully programmable automatic paper feeder: New stick winders are available with paper feed attachment. Upgrades are available for previously owned stick winders like the Model 307 Stick Winder with Automatic Paper Feed. Programmable paper feed length and shelf position.
