Abstract

The apparatus is for winding wire around a torroidal core. Cores 10 are moved as a train to the core pickup station along track 11 by gravity. At the pickup station, the core 10 resting against walls 12 and 13 is engaged by receiving slots 14 and 15 formed in the walls of shuttle 16 shown in phantom lines. Shuttle 16 moves in the direction shown to engage the core. After engaging a core 10, shuttle 16 moves upward onto track 17 and then slides on such track to the winding station where it inserts the core through split 19 in rotary bobbin 18 to seat the core in nest 20. The latter retains the core in a fixed position during winding. Shuttle 16 then returns to the pickup station.

Core Winding Apparatus

The apparatus is for winding wire around a torroidal core.

Cores 10 are moved as a train to the core pickup station along track 11 by gravity. At the pickup station, the core 10 resting against walls 12 and 13 is engaged by receiving slots 14 and 15 formed in the walls of shuttle 16 shown in phantom lines. Shuttle 16 moves in the direction shown to engage the core. After engaging a core 10, shuttle 16 moves upward onto track 17 and then slides on such track to the winding station where it inserts the core through split 19 in rotary bobbin 18 to seat the core in nest 20. The latter retains the core in a fixed position during winding. Shuttle 16 then returns to the pickup station.

Wire 21 is payed out from spool 22 and fed to the winding station. During the winding operation, bobbin 18 is frictionally driven by rollers 23 and 24. At the commencement of this rotation, clip 25 on bobbin 18 engages wire 21. As bobbin 18 rotates, wire 21 payed out from spool 22, is wound about the core 10. Each complete rotation of bobbin 18 results in one turn of wire about the core. After moving through a preselected number of rotations, bobbin 18 comes to rest at its starting position. Wire 21 is cut and the core 10 is removed from nest 20.

If it is desired to space the turns around the perimeter of the core being wound, then devices can be provided to index the core rotationally while it is being retained in nest 20.
