CAM's CT Harness Taping Machine has undergone a modernization. Like with our coil taping equipment the development of industrial servo drives has greatly improved the operation of our harness taping machines. In the past the choice was clutch driven continuous running motors or the old noisy DC motors. The new systems use high torque servos which are extremely quiet and have excellent low speed torque giving unmatched control during operation.

At CAM we are experts in tape application technology and can help you avoid costly design flaws and prototype failure. That's why we decided to launch a website dedicated to our spiral wound taping capabilities.

When wire harness manufacturers are looking to save time and money in their production, an often overlooked area to gain productivity is their method of taping.
We ask our customers what do they need in a Custom Taping Solution to help them save? To develop their solution they answer questions such as:
•What do you need to tape?
•What is the diameter of the item?
•How many pieces do you tape?
•What type of tape do you use?
•How fast do you want to tape?
We have also developed a calculator aimed at helping our customers see how much time they will save when they automate their spiral taping:

Customer's Need/Requirement: The customer needed a complete manufacturing line for a new precision cable assembly to unspool up to 9 wires and bind them together with a controlled twist to ensure even electrical properties. Once the bundle was created it had to be covered with film tape and a consistent overlap and respooled so that it could be moved to the next operation.
CAM's Solution: A custom comprehensive line was created by combining several proven components. The wire spools are mounted on shafts on a rotating frame. Each spool has a rotating frame and an individual brake to produce tension in the wire so that it is straight and taut while being formed into the bundle. The frame rotates the spools at the preset speed to produce the programmed twist.
Wires are gathered into a rotating die which ensure perfect alignment. Once combined, the bundle passes through an FT Taping Head to apply the film cover tape. The taped bundle is wrapped onto a spool. A precision layering device guides the wires onto the spool so that the bundle is evenly placed and does not become tangled. The drive system pulls with constant force to help the bundles on the spool tight.
This is an example of how CAM combines our proven technology for machine integration automation into a comprehensive line.
