Second hand binders and tapers in the Wire & Plastic Machinery inventory

Second hand binders and tapers in the Wire & Plastic Machinery inventory

Wrapping a tape or thread (or multiples of one or the other or both) can happen concentrically or eccentrically. In the concentric process, the main cable or wire is fed through the center of the core of the tape pad or binder package while it is being rotated. The key problem is that trying to make a continuous process means that multiple pads/packages must be set up ahead of time. In the eccentric process, multiple pads/packages are wrapped around the cable completely from the outside. Here it is very easy to stop and replace the empty pads/packages but because the rotational mass has shifted so much farther from the center, maximum rotational speed is less.

Wire & Plastic Machinery Corp. based in Bristol, CT, USA, proposes different second-hand models for your immediate use. Check out these highlighted versions:
