WTM cable taping lines and wire wrapping machines are high-performance equipment, optimized for producing high quality electrical conductors.
The cables realized with WTM machines are employed for building aircrafts, aerospace devices, high frequency antennas, military applications, server farms, cloud and data transfer technologies, medical devices, transformers, generators, etc.
WTM technical staff analyzes the production requirement of each final product and suggests the most suitable type of cable wrapping machine.
WTM wire taping lines can be in two different configurations:
This wrapping machine is suitable for round cables, mono and multiwires, on which it is possible to apply every kind of tape, both on pads and spools. The vertical construction of the cable taping modules has the undeniable advantage of optimizing the total length of the wrapping line, meeting the space requirement in the production area.
WTM offers also the variant of the splittable vertical taping machine: it is a wrapping equipment composed by two taping columns, each equipped with its own pay-off and take-up units. This allows to use this taping line as a single machine, applying two tape layers on the wire, or to use it as two separate production units.
This type of wrapping machine is suitable for cables with round, square, flat, sector section, both mono and multiwire, on which it is possible to apply every kind of tape, both on pads and spools.
This cable taping line can have 1, 2 or more wrapping units, according to the number of tape layers required for obtaining the final product.
The wrapping line can be completed with thermal treatment ovens, drying units and instruments for production quality control.
The cable taping or spinning head represents the heart of the wire covering and insulating process. WTM wire wrapping heads are suitable for both tape PADS and SPOOLS and can be installed on any WTM taping module.
WTM has studied and improved the tension control on the taping material: according to the level of mechanical criticality of the tape, it is possible to have DIRECT or INDIRECT control of the tensioning.
For furthering enhnancing the tape application on the wire, WTM has also designed a wide range of specific taping tools.
