Note: Texte fondé sur des processus automatiques de reconnaissance optique de caractères. Seule la version PDF a une valeur juridique
What is claimed is:
1. A wire brake for a wire winding machine for electrical cables, comprising;
a. a support frame;
b. a carriage slideably mounted on said support frame;
c. a stretching device coupled to said carriage for moving said carriage relative to said frame;
d. a plurality of brake strands, forming a brake cable, wound about the wire in a single layer and having first ends thereof fixedly clamped to said support frame;
e. a twisting device in said support frame and coupled to the second ends of said plurality of brake strands for selectively winding the second ends of said brake strands about the wire;
f. a plurality of pressure strands, forming a pressure cable, wound about said brake strands in a single layer and having first ends thereof coupled to said support frame; and
g. a control element, rotatably supported by said carriage, coupled to the second ends of said pressure strands, for controlledly rotating the second ends of said pressure strands to control the pressure exerted on the brake strands on the wire to control braking thereof.
2. A wire brake as claimed in claim 1, wherein said brake strands comprise a soft material such that the surface of the wire located within the brake cable is at least up to 50% in contact with the brake strands.
3. A wire brake as claimed in claim 2, characterized in that said brake strands comprise strips of leather.
4. A wire brake as claimed in claim 1 or 2 or 3, wherein said control element is coupled to a servo motor controlled by a controller, and wherein the controller operates in dependence upon the deviation of an actual value obtained between the wire brake and a winding station for the tension of the wire relative to a reference value.
5. a wire brake as claimed in claim 4, characterized in that said stretching device exerts a constant force on the carriage.
