FT Follower Taping Machine

Automatically Determines Cable Speed, Adjusts Tape Head Speed to MatchWatchVideo

FT Designed to be placed in line with a dereeler and winder, the FT Cable Taper provides spiral taping with complete tape overlap control in a very compact and reliable package.

This special spiral-taping machine uses a measuring wheel and encoder to determine how fast the wire is being pulled through the machine and automatically changes the speed of the taping head to compensate. By adjusting the head speed, a consistent tape overlap is maintained. With a maximum taping head speed of 500 RPM the standard FT Machine can tape 62.5 feet (19.1 m) per minute. Faster taping heads can be custom designed for faster work piece feed rates.

The taping head, material guide roller assemblies, and machine controls are mounted onto a heavy-duty welded steel base. There is zero accumulation error as the machine automatically compensates for speed variations.

 

  • Compensates for Changes in Wire Speed

  • Easy to Set Up, Simple to Adjust

  • Automatically Controls Tape Overlap
