Fine Wire Take-up with Servo Driven Capstan Puller


Showmark Pull-N-Spool combines a servo motor driven belt capstan with a traversing take-up section that includes an electronic clutch for controlling the winding tension down to less than 20 grams. The system can be configured for accurate speed control. It can also monitor analog feedback from a laser micrometer to precisely control the diameter of material exiting an extruder or optical fiber draw tower.  Watch Take-up Video & Read Full Transcript

2-Axis Fine Wire Takeup System


Two Showmark OTT-Mini wire take-up units are stacked together to create this 2-axis take-up system. Each independent axis pulls wire with a controlled amount of tension. The tension can be extremely low for use with delicate wires and filaments. Each axis includes separate tension controls and a length counter/controller. The controller can stop the specific axis when a certain length is reached. In this case it does not stop, but flashes to alert an operator that the target length has been reached for that spool.

Showmark Moving Take-up Units (MTU)


Two Showmark Moving Take-up Units (MTU) are stacked together to form a 2-axis system for neatly spooling fine wire, tubing, ribbon or other delicate material. Each MTU is CE-marked and enclosed in an electrically interlocked safety enclosure.
