Digispooler II – part 2
This video is Part 2 of a detailed description and demonstration of a Bidirectional DigiSpooler II programmable respooler.
This is the custom configured DigiSpooler 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.
Showmark DigiSpooler Precision Optical Fiber & Fine Wire Winder
This is a video of a DigiSpooler precision fiber and fine wire respooler. It is winding fiber optic wire at a speed of 50 meters per minute and with 25 grams of tension. This particular machine includes a 10-100 gram active closed-loop tension control system. It is fully reversible and tracks fiber length with .06% repeatability. The touchscreen computer interface can store setup recipes for several hundred combinations of spools and fiber. Placement of the fiber on the spool is controlled by a 250mm stroke traversing system with up to 12 micron placement accuracy. This is a CE-Marked system which includes an electrically interlocked safety enclosure.
