Abstract:

We know of a device for winding hollow plastic articles which contains a mechanism for continuously feeding the plastic blank, e.g., a bar or strip a rotating mandrel which has the same configuration as the finished article a mobile carriage driven by a lead screw to impart translational movement to the mandrel relative to the blank feed mechanism and a common synchronous electric drive for turning mandrel ans the lead screw. The proposed device is different from the known one because the lead screw is linked with a rotating worm wheel which has a drive that is programmed according to the required variation in the winding pitch through time. The difference makes it possible to smoothly vary the winding step while winding the article this is necessary in order to obtain intricately-shaped articles.
