Ridgway NCT

NARROW COIL TAPING MACHINE

Designed for the efficient taping of narrow wind turbine generator stator coils.

 

Ridgway NCT Narrow Coil Taping Machine

Advanced Narrow Coil Taping Machine

The Ridgway NCT Narrow Coil Taping machine offers an advanced and cost effective automated solution for taping narrow profile wind turbine generator stator coils.

The NCT features a unique multi-axis motion control system with a freestanding programmable HMI, making it a truly versatile machine that simplifies the precision taping of all narrow coil configurations, straight or diamond shaped.

The innovative design solves a common problem where traditional taping machines have limited access to both sides of the coil.

The coil support system features automatic coil turn-over and height adjustment. This simplifies set-up and eliminates the need to remove or reposition a coil to tape both sides, improving productivity.

Ridgway’s skilled and experienced engineers are also available for fast, professional support using remote machine diagnostics as necessary to assist the end user with specific operating conditions.

User Friendly HMI Control

Unique Taping Motion

The NCT uses a unique multi-axis head motion. Lateral movement of the NCT taping head is controlled via a servo motor driven ball screw. This in turn is synchronised with the servo motors that drive the rotational aspects of the taping head. The action of this complex head motion results in a precise process that consistently provides high quality taped coils.

Constant Tension Control

The Ridgway NCT features constant tension control between 20N and 50N.

Fully Programmable

The machine is fully programmable, for example to set the number of layers required for each coil side, tape pitch and linear speed, the angle of diamond coil legs. Auto reverse at the end of each pass allows for uninterrupted, multiple tape layers without downtime.

User Friendly HMI Control

Operated via a user friendly HMI control module, the Ridgway NCT provides the end user with a simple, reliable coil taping solution. For manufacturers of wind turbine generator stator coils, taping productivity and quality will be increased on all narrow coil requirements.
