Flange Detecting System with Mechanical Sensor

Even when winding similar spool types, manufactured to
similar tolerances, it is still necessary to continually adjust
the traverse mechanism after repeated spool changes, to
maintain the accuracy of the wind.
For our Linear Bi-directional gearbox we have now
developed a robust and cost effective mechanical flange
detection unit for parallel flanged spools. This unit allows
the initial reversing point for successive spools to remain
constant, and not be re-determined. Two detecting arms
swivel in to sensitively touch the inner faces of the flanges
and then swivel out immediately after contact.
The advantage of this simple mechanical unit is its
reliability and its insensitivity to disturbance while
operating precisely.
