Title (EN) A WINDING APPARATUS FOR AND METHOD OF MANUFACTURING HELICALLY WOUND TUBULAR STRUCTURES
(FR) APPAREIL D'ENROULEMENT ET PROCÉDÉ POUR LA FABRICATION DE STRUCTURES TUBULAIRES HÉLICOÏDALES
Abstract:
(EN) A winding apparatus for and method of manufacturing helically wound tubular structures (116) includes: a rotating inner faceplate (74) upon which are mounted a forming station for forming a supply of strip material before it is wound into a desired structure; a plurality of inner supports in the form of inner support rollers (110) mounted for radial displacement and rotation about an axis; an outer faceplate (118) having a plurality of outer support rollers (92) mounted for radial displacement and rotation about an axis. In operation, the inner support rollers act to support an inner portion S1 of strip material wound thereon whilst allowing it to be supplied from an inner diameter thereof to said forming station and the outer support rollers (92) act to support an outer portion S2 of said strip. The inner support rollers (110) and outer support rollers (92) are adapted to move radially to maintain support of said strip material as it is consumed.
(FR) Un appareil d'enroulement et un procédé pour la fabrication de structures tubulaires hélicoïdales (116) comprennent : une plaque frontale intérieure rotative (74) sur laquelle est formée une station de formation destinée à former une alimentation en matériau en bande avant son enroulement selon une structure souhaitée; une pluralité de supports intérieurs sous la forme de rouleaux de support intérieurs (110) montés en vue d'un déplacement radial et d'une rotation autour d'un axe; une plaque frontale extérieure (118) comportant une pluralité de rouleaux de support extérieurs (92) montés en vue d'un déplacement radial et d'une rotation autour d'un axe. En fonctionnement, les rouleaux de support intérieurs servent à supporter une partie intérieure S1 de matériau en bande enroulé sur ceux-ci tout en permettant sont alimentation depuis son diamètre intérieur jusqu'à ladite station de formation, et les rouleaux de support extérieurs (92) servent à supporter une partie extérieure S2 de ladite bande. Les rouleaux de support intérieurs (110) et rouleaux de support extérieurs (92) sont conçus pour se déplacer radialement afin de continuer à supporter ledit matériau en bande lors de sa consommation.
