Project Synopsis

Automation system for wire drawing & enameling machine at line speed of 1400 mpm for very fine wire upto 0.04 microns. The system is designed for an OEM manufacturer of machines. Many identical machines have been repeated later. The raw material (wire /conductor) comes from Pay-off & is fed into the drawing section where actual wire drawing takes place. After that wire goes to Entry capstan that is used for pulling the wire from Pay-off. The wire then goes into enameling section where wire enameling takes place. This is then passed through oven. Oven has Annealing & Cooling section. Six heaters are placed in oven for annealing. Before the wire comes out of the oven section cooling is done by Catalyst fan & fresh air fan.
  The oven is controlled to maintain constant temperature during the process. Next to that is Exit capstan, which is used for pulling the wire from oven. The Exit capstan then passes the wire onto spooler for winding. Spooler is controlled for different types of windings.

The scope of work included:

  1. Design & supply of control systems / cabinets.
  3. Software development
  5. Commissioning
