Ridgway BSG Bar Support Gantry

Bar Support Gantry

For a versatile and cost effective solution, when used in conjunction with the range of Ridgway BCT taping machines, the bar support gantry provides a secure method of supporting large stator bars during the taping process.

With precision, overhead linear guide rails and automatic retraction of the bar supports, the operator can tape the entire length of the stator bar without interruption.


Use to provide fast, accurate and consistent methods of operator guided tape application with virtually no preparation or set up time required.

Automatic retraction

The gantry is equipped with pneumatically controlled bar support arms. These automatically retract as the taping machine approaches.

Lateral positioning

The bar support arms are mounted on linear rails and can be positioned to accommodate various bar lengths. When taping short bars, these can be moved out of the taping area and isolated for operator convenience.

Height adjustment

The coil support arms are mounted on a lateral frame. To ensure a comfortable working height, the frame is raised or lowered hydraulically.


A range of gantry sizes are available to match exact requirements.

Multiple BCT carriages

Multiple BCT carriages can be added to allow a variety of taping machines to be used.
