Butterfly Ring Taper Story


Read the Full Story

A busy OEM had a bottleneck in their exciter line and their engineers were in a panic. Large metal rings with lots of break out tabs were being hand taped by a half dozen employees...

Working closely with the customer's in-house engineers, CAM's design team created a horizontal ring taping concept using 3-D mechanical design software.

Turn Taping Machines

Consistent Overlap In-Line Winding!

Tractor Turn Taper

Provides tight, consistent tape wrap with precise overlap control!

Designed to work in line with a loop winder, the TTT automatically compensates for speed variations caused by the loop bar’s winding motion. The secret is in the TTT “floating” tape head.

The machine’s tractor drive securely clamps onto and crawls along the moving wire at a pre-set speed. As the loop bar turns, the wire speed fluctuates and both the tractor drive and taping head “float” on precision guide rails. The result is measured advance of the tape head giving you total control of the tape overlap.


Tape Head “floats” on precision rails to compensate for changes in wire speed during winding.




Limit switches automatically stop the winder and de-clamp the tractor drive should the float range be exceeded.
