Research indicates that the worth of the electrical transformer industry may exceed $24 billion dollars by the year 2027. These units serve various purposes, and their importance should only grow in the future. This is one of the reasons why our low voltage foil winding machines have become even more necessary.
Tuboly Astronic boasts more than 30 years of experience, and all of our equipment is built to last. Nonetheless, it is important to discuss some of the features associated with our low-voltage winding machines. What variants are available? What features can users leverage? These and similar questions will be addressed below.
What Benefits Does a Low Voltage Foil Winding Machine Offer?
The best way to answer this question is to examine the general advantages attributed to foil transformer windings. Here are some of the reasons why foil may be preferred:
- Foil is an extremely reliable material.
- A reduction in the size and weight of the transformer.
- Foil can accommodate higher ambient temperatures.
- Enhanced electrical stress resistance.
- Impressive levels of efficiency.
It is clear that foil could very well represent a viable option. This brings us to the next main point. What do our LV foil winding machines have to offer?
What Types of Low Voltage Foil Winding Machines Can You Select?
Our low voltage foil winding machines can be segmented into four categories:
- The FCCC series (associated with cold pressure welding).
- The FCCT series (for TIG welding).
- The FM series (for chokes and smaller transformers).
- The EFECO series (for both cold pressure and TIG welding).
Let’s now briefly examine some interesting characteristics of each model.
The FCCC Series
These models are intended to be used when dealing with large cross-sections and demanding winding forces. Our FCCC line employs cold-pressure welding during the winding process. Note that rectangular, round and oval coils can be produced.
Depending on project requirements, it is possible to utilize either one or two de-coilers. Each is equipped with a standalone braking system, helping to guarantee consistent levels of tension.
The FCCT Series
Tuboly Astronic FCCT low voltage foil winding machines are also intended for larger projects. One main difference is that these units employ TIG (tungsten inert gas) welding techniques. TIG welding requires little post-production cleaning, and the electrical arcs are extremely precise.
It should also be mentioned that the FCCT series can accommodate foil and copper windings. Additional features include motor-driven welding, precision cuts and load capacities of 5,000 kilograms.
The FM Series
These next units are engineered to deal with smaller operational requirements. They employ cold-pressure welding during the fabrication process, guaranteeing constant tension. Note that optional grinding systems can be installed to eliminate any post-welding oxidation.
Once again, Tuboly Astronic places a significant amount of emphasis on versatility. The FM series can produce aluminium foils with copper lead-outs when needed. The AC motor of this unit is also controlled with an automated dancer system.
The EFECO Series
EFECO low voltage foil winding machines can support both TIG and cold pressure welding. These are some of the most cost-effective systems currently on the marketplace. EFECO configurations are primarily suitable for creating low voltage distribution transformers.
Additional amenities include up to two onboard de-coilers, adjustable strip thicknesses and an optional winding mandrel. Please refer to the technical specifications to learn more about this series.
