tooling for coiling systems
Without ultra-precision tooling, coiling micro wire sizes to extremely precise tolerances would not be possible. KineCoil manufactures and individually inspects its tooling to precision tolerance levels.
custom tooling tailored to your application
KineCoil offers special natural diamond coiling point tooling to solve the challenge of deflection coiling stainless steel materials encountered when using standard carbide coiling points. As an ISO 9001:2015 registered company, KineCoil follows strict quality procedures to ensure every piece of tooling functions properly for the customer. Our engineers will provide you with a more comprehensive insight into how these selected tools can be customized for your particular needs or project specifications.
Arbor size must be carefully chosen for individual coil configurations and varies with wire size, coil diameter, and material. An arbor that is too small can lead to a kinked or bent end as the coil is cut.
Coiling point selection is dependent on wire size and wire material. Coiling points are available in both carbide and natural diamond materials. Carbide offers a superior surface finish to help wire easily slide through the tooling while natural diamond offers superior wear resistance and is less prone to galling or sticking.
Preliminary wire guide size helps steer the wire into the feed rolls. The standard preliminary wire guide is sized to accommodate your maximum wire size and can be used for any wire size smaller than that. Special wire shapes like flat wire require special preliminary guides.
Final wire guides are critical to the deflection coiling process. The upper and lower final guides contain the wire while allowing it to travel easily through the feed rolls. Coiling wire experiences a high compression column load making it highly prone to buckling. Lower final guides are typically standard for a given wire size. Upper final guides are standard for a range of wire size and coil diameters.
Cutter size is determined by wire size. Typically, cutters are double-ended so customers get two cutting tools in one. Standard cutters work for a range of coil diameters. Special cutters are available for large diameter coiling applications.
Pitch tools typically accommodate all coil sizes and wire sizes. Standard pitch tools can accommodate all round wire sizes for a given machine. Special pitch tools are available for flat and shaped wire applications.
Feed Rolls are the first critical piece of tooling that contacts the wire under load. The upper and lower feed rolls pinch the wire with enough force to continuously push it through the final guides, coiling points, and pitch tool during the coiling process. Smaller feed rolls are available for ultra-small wire applications. Custom feed rolls are also available for shaped and flat wire applications.
