Ridgway Machines, world leader in taping machinery for the energy and power industries is pleased to announce the new advanced NCT Narrow Coil Taping Machine with a unique multi-axis taping head motion control system. Coupled with a fully programmable and intelligent touchscreen HMI, this simplifies the taping of all narrow coil configurations to ensure that the highest levels of quality and productivity are consistently achieved.

The innovative design solves a common problem where traditional taping machines have limited access to both sides of the coil. To simplify set-up the coil support system features automatic coil turn-over and height adjustment, this also eliminates the need to remove or reposition a coil to tape both sides, improving operational efficiency and productivity.

The NCT is fully programmable, for example to set the number of layers required for each coil side, tape pitch, linear speed and tension control. Auto reverse at the end of each pass allows for uninterrupted, multiple layers without incurring machine downtime. Coil lengths between 700mm and 3000mm can be accommodated with weight up to 200kg. The NCT will accept tape widths of 20mm or 25mm with a pitch capability between 5mm and 28mm, whilst operating at a rotational speed up to 60 rpm. Tension control is between 20 - 50N.

For manufacturers of narrow profile coils such as wind turbine generator stator coils, taping quality and productivity will be maximised. The NCT also uses remote machine diagnostics, enabling Ridgway to provide live, machine specific user support worldwide. This ensures that performance of the NCT can be rapidly optimised for different operating conditions.
