STORAGE DEVICES - VERTICAL COMPENSATORS
The vertical compensator is, in fact, a storage place for the extruded strand, which collects the strand when the reels are remounted onto a double-spindle winder. The compensator allows the operator to easily change the spool without interrupting the extrusion process. The compensator can store 30 or 45m.b. of strand. A key element in the compensator’s equipment is an integrated position transducer, which allows precise integration with the winder, eliminating the pulsation of filament stresses in the winding process. It is also possible to adjust the tension of the filament to a large extent, through a system of appropriately selected weights. Standard guide rollers with a diameter of 200mm, or, optionally, for rigid filaments with a diameter of 300mm, can be used in the compensator.
