What Is Winding Machines Used For?4 Available Features You Need to Know !

Winding machines are a key piece of equipment for the automated production of metal coils. This guide explains how and why these machines are used and the available features. 

At Teeming Machinery, we provide a wide range of equipment for different industries. These pieces of equipment can be used to speed up and maximize the efficiency of processes in various businesses. One of the most popular types of equipment we offer are winding machines. In this article, we’ll explore what winding machines are, how they are used and the key features which could make them ideal for your business model.


What Is A Winding Machine?

A winding machine is a piece of equipment that can be used for wrapping different types of metal coils for various purposes. Some examples include:

These metal coils can be wound around different pieces of equipment so that they can be used in a wide range of purposes. Winding machines are a common part of the manufacturing process that is key to creating mechanical equipment. 

They are most commonly used for creating tight coils such as an ignition coil. An ignition coil also referred to as a spark coil is part of the ignition system in a vehicle. This transformers the voltage from the battery into thousands of volts. In modern vehicles, much smaller cars are used with one coil required for each spark plug. As such, countless coils are used for the engine of just one car. This is one of the reasons why it has become increasingly important to ensure that these parts can be created and produced at a far faster rate. That’s exactly what automated winding machines do and it’s just one example. 

Winding machines come in various different sizes and designs. For instance, there are winding machines that can wind one metal coil at a time as well as machines that can wind multiple coils. 

Some of the types of metal coil winding machines include:

  • Single-axis winding machine

  • Multi-axis winding machine

  • Winding coating machine

  • Production line

Functions Of A Winding Machine 

The main function of a winding machine is - as you might have guessed - winding. 

Winding refers to the process of winding coils so that they can be used for a specific part or purpose in a larger piece of equipment such as a car engine. 

Modern winding machines can wind coils at a speeds ranging from 2000 to 6000 RPM. It is important to choose the right winding machine for your business process.  

Aside from the primary function of a winding machine, there are also auxiliary functions to be aware of. These include:

  • Wire twister(wire diameter under 0.05mm)

  • Automatic loading & unloading(bobbin width under 22mm)

  • Cutter (wire diameter: over 0.28mm)

  • Knife (wire diameter: over 0.15mm)

  • Electrical tensioner

  • Servo tensioner

Different Types Of Features Of A Winding Machine

Winding machines can have a variety of different features. This will often depend on the type of winding machine that you choose to use in your business. 


Wire Break Alarm

Many winders have matched with different kind of tensioners, some of the types of tensioners include:
  • Spring servo tensioner
  • Simple servo tensioner
  • Pneumatic servo tensioner
  • Electronic tensioner
  • Magnetic tensioner

These tensioners can connect with winder, if wire break, machine will alarm, the user can know which spindle’s wire is braked quickly.

Besides, wire break alarm, Teeming’ machine is matched with the cylinder and sensor, and the program can know which cylinder is not moving, or the machine is stopped due to the failure of the sensor to detect it.

Actuated Knife Cut-Off

A winding machine can have a knife blade. This is used to cut wire. The knife can be actuated through the use of an electrical or pneumatic actuator depending on the type of machine. 

A teeming cutter can cut enameled copper wire of more than 0.15mm, if it is less than 0.15mm, it is recommended to use a knife.

Automatic Or Manual Role Change 

Teeming’s product can use for many different kinds of coil, when this coil has been finish produced, the coil of winding machine tooling will need to be changed. Teeming winding machines ensures that this is a changed process.

When changed to other coil, the first thing is change to manual mode to check the tooling position whether is okay, if okay, machine can start produced.Then Teeming modern automated winding machines are capable of delivering both high speed core loading and tooling changes quickly.
