Innovative winding system for transformer cores uses ACE push type gas springs for optimum strap tension

When winding a transformer core with resin tape, oval transformer legs can potentially cause a drop in tension. However, the tape tension is highly significant. In order that the sheets in the transformer do not move an inch in the vertical direction during winding, a braking system with GS-19 gas springs (push type) from ACE is used. Thanks to its 6 inch travel distance serving as a reserve, the tape tension is kept constant, even in the event of interruptions caused, for example, by almost right-angled cross-sections. This ensures that the winding of the transformer core, which can weigh up to several hundred-thousand pounds, is uniform and even.
