DS 373 Cake Winder

The cake winder DS 373 is used for pulling off glass or basalt fibres from bushings continuously.
The fibres are wound cakes of saddle or trapezoidal shape.
Therefore it is equipped with two winding spindles which are changed over automatically while the threads are transferred from one winding mandrel to the other.
For traversing the threads, the fix flyer rotates above the traversing mandrel.
Because of this distribution of the movements, a better product quality by lower thread deflection is gained (thread triangle is smaller).
Through this principle of winding, there are less thread deflection points needed and therefore there is less thread tension. For the named reasons is this winding process mainly at very small titers of great advantage.
The winder is designed to endure non-stop operation in conditions of being stressed by severe fouling and the strong usage of size.
On a winding mandrel you can produce 1 to 4 cakes simultaneously.

  • Basic equipment:
  • Intuitive machine adjustments via touch panels with visualised program operation.
  • Precise, electronic controlled crossing ratio to gain rovings with a good suitability for high-frequency drying systems.
  • Programmable winding of protection layers.
  • Automatic cleaning of the machine components by water jets.
