We have a 2 axis X-Winder helping in winding 1 mandrel at a time.

Could we add another motor to the current setup and winding 2 mandrels simultaneously? We can add another control box if required.

I have drawn schematics of our current and desired setup and the image of our current setup to help understand my query,

Hey,

I am using the 4.16 version. As the carrier reaches the left and right ends of the mandrel, the DH does not advance to the left or right DH advance point. It stays at the DH Offset from mandrel surface. After the [CW ELLIPSE AT LEFT END] move, I then get the error shown above. This repeats until I stop the wind. However, if I pause the wind at either end during the wind, after a minute or so, the DH will advance to said point. 

If anyone has any comments or suggestion,…

Using Xwinder to apply Heat Shrink Tape?

Hi All!I am about ready to get the Xwinder however does anyone know if the Xwinder has the ability to, or can be modified to, wrap the mandrel and part with Dunstone's Heat Shrink Tape? The application we plan on using it for requires Heat Shrink tape at 2.5" width and 50% overlap.Looking at the design of the Xwinder I believe that I would probably have to modify the delivery head to be able to pass through the 2.5" wide tape.If anyone has been able to do that or has any input I would really…

X-Winder CAD Files

I am currently working on a project in an undergradate research role. We are working closely with X-Winder products, and I was hoping I could find a model of any X-Winder series to use in a simulation. I would love to use the whole assembly, but only the chuck plate dimensions are absolutely essential at this time. Due to the quarentine for the COVID-19 outbreak in my area, I cannot go in to get dimensions to make my own model.

"For anyone that wants to work with the 3-Axis-No-Wrap mode (even after reading Turner's comment) you can use versión v4.17 where that option is available. "

"Fully agree!  We are in urgent need of knowledge sharing from other users.
We also have our own experiences/knowledge and improvements to share with our 4 axis and 16" mandrel 34 motor upgrades."
