Oscillator – 15 Disk
- Product Overview
The Tensor SZ Oscillator is proven technology with years of running time in the field. The Tensor oscillator is designed with 10 or 15 rotating disks.
15 Disk Oscillator
The 15 disk oscillator has 15 rotating ceramic disks. Each disk is directly driven by a belt connected to a lightweight shaft. The disks rotate progressively from one disk to another, resulting in a spiral. At the end of the oscillator, the tubes/wires twist up to 14 turns before the oscillator reverses and twists up to 14 turns in the opposite direction. Careful design considerations ensure that the tube/wire tension remains low while it is traveling through the oscillator. The layplates are made from ceramic and are easily interchangeable for a different hole pattern.
The oscillator layplates are driven by up to three motors. This allows oscillator speeds of over 2000 rpm on some cable designs. The SZ Oscillator can be placed directly before an extruder if copper wires are being ran—or it can be placed before a Dual Head Binder if the tubes/wires are to be bound. There are many applications for the SZ oscillator that takes the place of the traditional rotating reel stranders.
To ensure that each reversal is sharp and within the specification, Tensor uses special programming to accelerate the oscillator at the reversals to lock in the exact reversal. It can also overtwist the reversal so that the reversal is locked in at a short distance.
The oscillator can be designed to stand alone or be integrated into a complete line.
Each oscillator is engineered to withstand the high speed demands placed on it during production. Safety features such as disk brakes and interlocked doors are incorporated into the oscillator, ensuring operator safety and reducing the risk of cable damage.
Optional wheel and tracks can be added to move the oscillator off line if desired.
