The WSW-III Precision Wire Spiral Winder offers new capabilities in wire reinforcing for a broad range of hose constructions. It affords you the ability to produce hose with high quality and uniformity. In each module, two counter-rotating turntables can be mounted back-to-back or in line facing the same direction. Each turntable has its own individual positive speed control. Control of turntable speed is accomplished by utilizing only one change gear that provides for greater control of the helix angle. On each turntable, a single unit accurately and uniformly preforms all of the wire ends. One adjustment per turntable is required to set preform.
