Compumotor Division, North America: Home > Support > Applications > Capacitor Winder
The customer winds aluminum electrolytic capacitors. Six reels, two with foil and four with paper, are all wound togther to form the capacitor. The previous system used a PLC, conventional DC drives and counters to initiate all machine functions. Moreover lengthly set-up times and caliberation procedures and material breakage were common. This application solves these problems with the use of appropriate components.
Motion Control Requirements:
Precise motion control of the material feed axes demands closed-loop servo commands. Analog and digital I/O actuates the external cylinder. A flexible operator interface is used for diagnostics and alterations in machine functions. All these are provided with a machine controller. To avoid material breakage, a constant tension is applied on all reels via air cylinders. Moreover, a support software allows the user to make his own controller programs which results in the machine working automatically till the job is completed.
