The WSW-IV 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 by controlling both diameter and pitch preform. 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 independent deck controls. On each turntable, a single unit accurately and uniformly preforms all of the wire ends.
