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.

Available features of all systems include:

  • Programmable – can store settings for 100's of spool & fiber combinations
  • Winding Pitch – settable between 10µm and 25mm with 1 µm 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

  • Traverse lengths from 10 – 300mm (.4 – 12 inches)
  • Winding speeds from 0-300rpm
  • Open or closed-loop constant tension control with ranges from 20g – 4Kg  (.7oz – 8.8 lb)
  • Length measurement and control with English or Metric display
  • 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

Here is a 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 +/- 3 gram accuracy within a settable range of 20-200g. Length is tracked with .06% repeatability.
