Abstract:

The braked linear nipper of the present invention comprises a belt roller, a belt, and a belt load for applying a squeeze load along a length of a linear material being pulled along the belt by an object onto which the linear material is being wound. The linear material imparts motion to the belt via friction coupled by the squeeze load. A brake coupled to the belt induces a tension in the linear material.
