monofilament winder

Machine Objectives:

  • Controlled tension on monofilament
  • Simple operator interface
  • High throughput

Motion Control Requirements:

  • 2 Axes of coordinated motion
  • Linear interpolation
  • Constant torque from motor

Application Solution:

The prime requirement of the bobbin drive is to provide a controlled tension, which means operating in Torque mode rather than Velocity mode. This requirement leads to the use of a servo operating in Torque mode even though a servo in Velocity mode might be recommended with an overriding torque limit. Therefore, the servo normally operates as a constant-torque drive, but if the filament breaks, the velocity is limited to the programmed value. The traversing arm is usually driven by a smaller servo.
