Amacoil Offers Spool Flange Sensor
Amacoil Inc., Aston, Pa., now offers a programmable logic controller (PLC)-controlled spool flange
sensing system option for use with Uhing traverse winding drives. The sensors, available in two
versions, detect the spool flange and send a signal to a pneumatic switch, which actuates the
reversal lever on the drive. According to Amacoil, the systems reduce the time required to monitor
the drive's reversal points, allowing operators to manage more winding stations.
The systems are available with new Uhing winding drive assemblies, and may be retrofitted on existing Uhing setups.
