Our editorial featured in the November 2018 edition of the IWMA wire and cable news for Wire India.

Ridgway Machines, the leading provider of taping and winding machines for the electrical and energy industries has designed and manufactured a brand new taping line for applying Kapton and Glass to round or flat cables and conductors.

The new taping line comes with a leading edge camera system to monitor the tape as it insulates. Also built into the line is a radiant oven that retracts when the line stops to prevent burning, an induction heater to aid adhesion and a conductor cooling unit. The whole line from pay off to take up drum stand is controlled through an advanced HMI control system.

Ridgway Machines also offer an extensive range of other cable and conductor taping machines such as precision high speed machines that specialises in high frequency small wire sizes for the aviation and aerospace industries, as well as the usual mica and paper covering machines.
