Rotor Winding Machine

For a complete solution to enable the fast and effective winding of rotor pole coils.

Geared servo drive system

The W-RHD incorporates the latest servo drive technology. A variable speed geared motor directly drives the main spindle, providing a high torque capability throughout the speed range.

Pneumatic holding brake

The spindle is fitted with a pneumatic holding brake to ensure a positive stop.

Operator controls

The main control panel used to vary speed and direction of rotation is mounted on a free standing pedestal giving greater operator flexibility. The operator has full control of both the acceleration and deceleration through the entire speed range simply by using the remote foot pedal.

Drum stands

A range of single and double friction braked or wear free active tensioned drum stands is available.
