Amacoil Inc. (www.amacoil.com) is proud to announce the release of the new Amacoil-Uhing AVS software-based level winding system that utilizes sensors to coordinate and monitor spool rotational speed relative to accumulate materials at the spool flanges.
Sensors monitor the spool rotational speed, the line feed speed of the wire or other material and linear speed/position of the traversing unit. The new system can fix the defect – such as when accumulation of material in the spool flanges is bulge in the level wind, uneven or forming a dent – by automatically creating the required adjustments based on the sensor data’s software analysis.
The continuous balancing of spool rotation speed with traverse speed/position and line feed speed results in a smooth, level wind with no bulges or depressions at the spool flanges. Damaged or warped spool flanges do not interfere with AVS operation. The system may be utilized with Uhing traverses as well as with other level winding traverse drives, such as ball screws and other types of timing belts and linear actuators.
The new Uhing AVS system is ideal for spooling wire with spool rotational speeds of 3,000 rpm (maximum) and a diameter of 0.2 up to 5 mm (0.008 – 0.197 inches). With the absence of optical sensors, working in harsh environments is not a problem. Suited for conical shaped or cylindrical spools, the new AVS system can store up to ten programs with preset-button access. A user manual illustrates the AVS install but a good working knowledge in electro-mechanical devices is needed, particularly when the AVS is being used with a non-Uhing traverse drive.
