The global power transformer market was estimated to be worth in the region of €20 billion in 2019. Indeed, this figure looks set to grow, with a market size of about €31 billion by 2026, according to some. That’s why so much attention should be paid to the quality of the horizontal winding machines in use today. Of course, Tuboly Astronic has a superb track record in the production of modern horizontal winding machine technology.
Our systems can bring about ever-improving power transformers, the sort of thing the industry needs to sustain growth. With three decades of experience in the production of high-quality winding machines, there is no better place to turn. Indeed, with our famous Swiss engineering skills and prowess in the field of power transformation winding, we deliver every time. What makes our horizontal winding machines so powerful and reliable? Find out more about why our machines are so trusted around the world today.
Enhanced Reliability from World-Class Horizontal Winding Machines
Just like our specialist machines and our popular range of core stacking systems, our winding machines offer reliability. From the design stage, the whole ethos behind our winding systems is that they’ll provide high levels of accuracy. When in use, this means fewer, if any, production errors and higher quality finished products. As a result of the enhanced levels of dependability, producers of all types of power transformers can expect better results. Not only will this make quality control decisions easier to take, but it will allow for improved customer service.
In other words, greater consistency during production leads to fewer product faults and returns. As such, businesses operative in the competitive power transformation sector will gain an edge by adopting our systems. They will be able to operate our horizontal winding machines safe in the knowledge that their transformers will work properly. We believe that no other winding machine manufacturer can offer this degree of dependability. Why? Because our high technical standards lead in the industry, for one.
Furthermore, our horizontal winding machines provide this level of reliability in various coil assortments. Part of this is explained by the modular nature of our systems, a design that provides lots of flexibility, too. Simply put, our modular approach to horizontal winding machine technology allows for many types of power transformer to be produced. Transformer manufacturers will achieve great reliability, even when they are winding coils for new products and new applications. Indeed, the possibilities are virtually unlimited when Tuboly Astronic’s horizontal winding machines have been invested in.
Horizontal Winding Machines – Key Benefits
There are both high and low-voltage horizontal winding machines available within the extensive range available from Tuboly Astronic. Each of these systems offers different advantages and design styles. However, they usually provide many of the same benefits, regardless of the particular system. We will discuss some examples of the horizontal winding machines available that are suited to power transformers later. For now, it’ll be of benefit to examine the key advantages power transformer manufacturers can expect from a typical system.
To begin with, let’s consider continuous winding. To be clear, continuous winding means working in a way where all the necessary stop points are pre-calculated. With a Tuboly Astronic horizontal winding machine, a precise winder sliding system will be in use, too. Again, this will result in fewer interruptions to the winding process itself, thereby enhancing manufacturing efficiency. Moreover, the tension being applied to foils in the winding process can be maintained, regardless of the wind’s progress. This is thanks to a highly sophisticated dancer control mechanism, which ensures that constant tension is maintained.
What’s more, a computer-controlled foil edge control mechanism can also be used to enhance this level of automation. Another key benefit of the Tuboly Astronic approach to horizontal winding machine technology is that it is designed for convenience. Operators will soon notice just how short the set-up times between winding processes can be. In turn, this means fulfilling customer orders faster – even when their power transformer requirements differ every time. Most manufacturers of power transformers will also notice an unbeatable cost-to-performance ratio. The return on investment you can expect from a Tuboly Astronic system is very great indeed. In part, this is due to the very long machine lifespans you can expect of our systems, especially horizontal winders.
An Extensive Range of First-Rate Arranged Winding Systems
As well as our vertical winding machines, Tuboly Astronic has plenty of options when it comes to horizontal systems. Both types offer exceptionally high-performance standards. In particular, the horizontal winding machine technology we have developed will be of interest to the power transformer manufacturing sector. This is due to the fact that we have so many different horizontal winding systems available to choose from.
In fact, with such an extensive range, there is a machine suitable for every type of business in the world. This is one of the reasons that our Swiss-made machines are sold all over the globe, not just in Europe. For example, our FCCC and FCCT foil winding machines are designed for horizontal winding applications. These are ideal for dealing with large cross-sections, which may need to withstand high winding forces. Furthermore, our FM series of horizontal winding machines are primarily designed to fulfil a different market niche.
The FM Winding Machine Series
Our FM winding systems are particularly suited to the manufacturing of small and medium-sized distribution transformers. They can also be used to make chokes of similar dimensions while maintaining high-quality controls. The FM series can also be used with cold pressure or TIG-welding systems, something many enterprises will be interested in. Cold press welding is often regarded as the most effective way to connect a conductor foil with a lead-out. The FM series allows the conductor foil and lead-out to connect under full foil tension in a horizontal arrangement. Indeed, the cold pressure welding system can be augmented with an automatic grinding unit to remove any oxidised material, too.
The FCCT Foil Winding Series and One-Off Solutions
A larger horizontal foil winding machine in our range, such as the FCCT series, operates differently. With the FCCT series, you get a motor-driven roller knife, which cuts the foil at pre-calculated positions. This system comes equipped with a TIG welding system, which offers a motor-driven welding torch guidance mechanism, too. To put it another way, the vast array of horizontal winding machine technologies on offer covers every possible commercial requirement. Even when our standard systems do not meet a specific need, they can be adapted to make them suitable. Our in-house team of design engineers are happy to discuss the particular requirements of this nature for the right project.
