For taping and bunching wire and cable - up to 8 Separate Conductors
Ridgway offer a complete automated machine line for taping and bunching multiple conductors together. Taping insulation material is applied onto the individual conductors (up to 8 maximum) prior to bunching and collectively insulating the finished conductor stacks.
Taping speeds in excess of 1000rpm can be provided with a choice of 2, 3, 4 or 8 pad heads for each individual taping bay to provide the required quantity of insulation layers. A full graphics HMI interface provides simplified control from a single free standing console.
If space is a constraint, we can design a compact unit to suit your exact requirements.
▼ Complete range – torque and dancer control available.
▼ Hardened steel rollers with powered brushes are incorporated into the design, providing perfectly straightened and cleaned conductor prior to tape application.
▼ Servo motor drive
▼ Photo-electric tape break detectors
▼ Low tape pad detection
▼ Conductor steady with adjustable guide roller units
▼ Strobe light option giving freeze frame view of taping process
Extensive range for all applications:
▼ Tangential heads with 2, 3, 4 or 8 tape pads
▼ Concentric heads for traverse wound packs or flat pads
▼ Up to 5000N pull
▼ Servo drive, synchronised to tape head speed
▼ Pneumatically controlled belt pressure Take‑up drum stand
▼ Traversing drum – servo driven
▼ Traversing wire – Uhing type
▼ Drum Ø sensing
