Abstract

This apparatus winds ribbon or wire around a hollow core such as one used in a pulse transformer. Core 10 is mounted intermediate a pair of laterally reciprocating carriages 11 and 12. The latter have conduits 13 and 14, respectively, through which either vacuum or positive air pressure can be exerted relative to core 10. Ribbon 15, comprising a plurality of strands of wire, is to be wound around core 10. In the position of the apparatus shown in A, ribbon 15 is already wound about core 10 for one quarter turn indicated at 16. This is previously accomplished by a lateral motion of carriage 11 to the left while ribbon 15 is retained within conduit 13 by a vacuum applied within such conduit.

Automatic Pneumatic Core Winding Apparatus

This apparatus winds ribbon or wire around a hollow core such as one used in a pulse transformer. Core 10 is mounted intermediate a pair of laterally reciprocating carriages 11 and 12. The latter have conduits 13 and 14, respectively, through which either vacuum or positive air pressure can be exerted relative to core 10. Ribbon 15, comprising a plurality of strands of wire, is to be wound around core 10. In the position of the apparatus shown in A, ribbon 15 is already wound about core 10 for one quarter turn indicated at 16. This is previously accomplished by a lateral motion of carriage 11 to the left while ribbon 15 is retained within conduit 13 by a vacuum applied within such conduit. When carriage 11 arrives at the position shown in A, the vacuum within conduit 13 is terminated and a vacuum is applied to conduit 14 within carriage 12 to pull ribbon 15 within conduit 14 in the position shown. During the lateral movement of carriage 11, ribbon 15 is held in place on core 10 by spring-actuated slide 17. This prevents movement of the wound ribbon during the transfer of the ribbon from conduit 13 to conduit 14.

Next, with ribbon 15 held within conduit 14 by vacuum, carriage 12 moves laterally to the right. This completes the second and third quarter turns of ribbon 15 around core 10. Simultaneously with the lateral movement of carriage 12 to the right, carriage 11 also moves to the right and then down along the right ed...
