EVEN GREATER PRODUCTION

The taping head uses low or high resin tapes for OEM or repair coil shops. It applies tapes over the “in-slot” area and end legs of the coil or bar. In the case of a closed coil the length of covering is limited only by the clearance for head access. Especially useful on longer, heavier coils – the optional coil turnover unit enables both sides of a coil to be taped with speed and convenience.

Ridgway BCT-VLDM

Cost Effective Bench Mounted Taping Machine Improves Coil Manufacturing Productivity.

The Ridgway BCT suspended coil taping machine is also available in a convenient bench mounted configuration. This provides a self-contained and cost effective solution for improving the productivity and quality of manually operated coil taping lines. The BCT Bench machine is ideal for taping smaller and open coils and bars, for applications such as motor and generator stators. Two layers can be applied simultaneously and the BCT tapes in both directions.

The machine is pneumatically operated, by a series of pneumatic foot pedals that control the clamp facility, traverse direction and taping speed, at speeds up to 250 rpm with no electrical power required.

The Ridgway BCT-VLDM series is available in 2 sizes:

BCT COIL HANDLING EQUIPMENT

Coil Handling System with Suspended Taping Head Improves Manufacturing Productivity

Ridgway BCT hand-held taping machines are available with a range of gantry systems, particularly useful for taping larger or heavy coils. Designed as a complete workstation, the gantry enables the pneumatic BCT to be weightlessly suspended for ease of operation. In addition, a Coil Turnover Unit allows quick height setting and rotation of the coil to tape both sides. Productivity is increased and a consistently high quality tape application achieved.

Increase your production effectiveness by complementing the range of BCT taping machines with Ridgway’s selection of dedicated handling equipment. Use Ridgway gantry workstations with CTU coil turnover units to provide fast, accurate and consistent methods of operator guided tape application with virtually no preparation or set up time required.

BCT Coil Supports and Clamps

A range of supports and clamps specially designed to increase BCT coil taping productivity.

Retractable Front Supports

Freestanding retractable front support designed for quick and easy operation. Comprising of an air cylinder with an adjustable soft top, enabling the desired work height to be achieved. Cylinder up and down movement is actuated via a foot pedal.

Rear Supports

Freestanding rear support designed for quick and easy operation. Manual vertical adjustment.

Clamps

All clamps are robustly designed and pneumatically actuated via a foot pedal.

Ridgway Bar Support Gantry

Designed to clamp and support large stator bars while
taping with BCT taping machines.

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.

 Quality

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.

 Flexible

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

Overhead linear rails

A free running carriage, mounted on precision linear rails ensure smooth lateral traverse of the taping machine.

 End clamping

Two heavy duty , free standing pneumatic clamps are positioned at either end of the gantry. These are height adjustable and offer a flexible solution for bar end support.
