DigiSpooler I & II

The DigiSpoolers are precision programmable servomotor driven respoolers designed for optical fiber and other fine wires and filaments. Two versions are offered. The DigiSpooler I is typically a tabletop system featuring our user friendly 6″ color touchscreen interface. The DigiSpooler II is a floor standing system provided with a customizable 17″ color touchscreen interface linked to a tower PC that is available for hosting user programs if required.

Now Available with LEVEL-TRU Technology

Available features of all systems include:

  • Programmable – can store settings for 100’s of spool & fiber combinations
  • Winding Pitch – settable between 10µm and 100mm with 1µm resolution
  • Precision Wire Length Tracking – 0.06% repeatability
  • Straight Wire Path – puts less stress on wire/less twisting – also ideal for ribbon wire or flat wire
  • Reversible & Bidirectional
  • Solid State Tension Control – typically  +/- 2 grams control

Typical features and specifications include:

  • Color touchscreen interface includes a password protected Recipe Manager for storing all setup parameters for several hundred spool and fiber combinations. Standard traverse ranges (= spool width) are available up to 350mm (14 inches)
  • Winding pitch is settable between 10μm and 100mm with 1μm resolution
  • A variety of shaft sizes or chucks for holding a wide range of spool sizes and mandrels
  • Most systems include Universal Spool Adapters for mounting a variety of spool sizes without additional tooling
  • The winding speed is adjustable from approximately 0-400rpm. The speed can be entered in rpm, meter/minute, or feet/minute
  • Bidirectional winding capability
  • Several closed-loop tension control options are available with ranges from 10-1000 grams (.35 – 35 ounces)
  • Stopping repeatability is typically within 100mm for each kilometer wound
  • Wire break detection
  • Flange Detect option automatically senses and maps the flange locations of each spool
  • All contact surfaces are very low friction rollers
  • CE-Mark option includes an interlocked safety enclosure, power reset circuit, and appropriate documentation
  • 120 or 230VAC operation

See video of the DigiSpooler precision winding machine for optical fiber and other fine wire and filaments. This is a bidirectional winding system designed to fit within a 1 cubic meter enclosure. The machine is driven by a 4-axis servomotor system with a PC-based touchscreen interface. It controls tension with +/- 2 gram accuracy within a settable range of 20-200g. Length is tracked with .06% repeatability.
