With 6 high speed winding machines available we can wind coils up to a length of 300mm and a diameter of 250mm depending on wire size and insulation requirements. Our machines can handle wire sizes from 0.14mm to12mm.
In addition we have 2 Low Voltage coil winding machines available.
We have 4 toroidal winding machines which we use to produce a range of bespoke ring type current transformers up to a core diameter of 900mm to order.
With our in house capabilities we are able to produce a range of specialised windings ranging from field oils to shim tubes for medical scanners and stator windings for high speed motors. We are happy to work with our customers on such specialist applications in order to produce solutions to their problems.
A more recent addition to our special windings skills is a range of magnet coils. The large winding machines can wind up to 1.75 tonnes of wire per coil.
Our capabilities enable us to offer assembly and fitting to meet customers’ requirements. We are able to fit a wide range of metering units, voltage transformers in oil filled tanks, tube mounted current transformer arrays, current transformers in aluminium and ABS housings, pole mounted assemblies etc.
The standard material used in our resin casting process is rigid polyurethane and the majority of our resin cast units employ this. We can also offer epoxy resin for this purpose when specified by our customers.
The casting process can include VPI, vacuum chambers, and an autoclave facility.
A cold cure polyurethane resin is also used for specialised uses such as current transformers in ABS boxes.
We are able to offer a service to our customers which enables them to refurbish old or obsolete switchgear from a number of manufacturers including AEI, YSF6, SWS, and J & P. If you are interested in refurbishing these or any other obsolete switchgear please get in touch.
