Abstract

A technique is described whereby a wire feeding mechanism incorporates a wire loop sensing device, controlled by air pressure, to control the wire as it is fed into wire feed mechani The loop sensing device is unique in that it eliminates faulty feed problems and binds which may occur in the processing of feeding a reel of wire into a wire feed mechanism.
