Amacoil Unveils Spool Flange Sensing Options

Amacoil Inc., Aston, Pa., now offers reflective and non-reflective optical flange sensing systems for use with Uhing traverse winding drives. The reflective version is used with spools that are brightly colored or made of light-reflecting material. The non-reflective version may be used with spools of any color or material. Both systems feature opto-sensors that detect the spool flanges and signal a pneumatic or electronic switch to reverse the direction of the winding drive. The systems enhance spooling accuracy and eliminate the need to adjust end stops when spools of different widths are used. Amacoil stresses that with either system, spools must not be warped or have damaged flanges.
