Horizontal Wire Braider


High speed horizontal wire braider


Penguin Braidmaster is engineered for precision braiding of high performance hoses. Penguin braiding machines are built with design and material perfected over years of experience in building a range of braiding machines. The modular design makes it possible to tailor the machine to suit the requirement of the customer. Machines are available as vertical/ horizontal configuration, suitable for wire/ yarn braiding, single or multiple deck with options of capstan/ caterpillar take-off.

Penguin Wire Braiding Machines are indigenously designed and Penguin is the only indigenous manufacturers of these heavy duty machines in India and one among the very few manufacturers in the world.

These Braiding machines are characterized by high productivity, simplicity and excellence in performance. The hoses manufactured by these machines are far superior to conventional hoses in strength, appearance and durability.

Braiding technique is used to retain the shape & increase the strength and the life of Special purpose hoses made from materials like rubber, PVC, etc.

Braidmaster is a high performance precision braider. This wire braider is engineered to give sustained performance over long periods.

The machine is built with a steel framed structure. The drives and take-off are located at the top of the machine. The vertical configuration occupies a floor area of 1.7x1.6m. The spindles can be accessed from either side through conveniently placed safety interlock doors. The deck assembly is engineered to ensure smooth sliding and exchange of shoes. Exceptional smooth running, minimum vibration and very low noise level are salient features of the machine.

The wire carriers are of proven design. They are engineered to perfection for trouble free performance. The wire carriers have bobbin capacity of 820cc. Molded integral plastic carriers with shoes are also available for yarn braiding applications on this machine.

The performance of the machine is continuously monitored by a PLC. This provides continuous monitoring of pitch and production data. Essential production data can be stored and retrieved conveniently by this arrangement. Optic sensors are used to sense the presence of wire in the bobbin. Electronic circuit senses breakage of wire strands. All faults are monitored through the PLC. This machine incorporates all features required by the hose industry for producing wire braided high-pressure hoses.

The machine can operate speeds upto 175 horn gear rpm. The deck speed can be varied through change gears. For haul-off of large diameter hoses without slippage, a 250mm wide, 750mm diameter capstan is provided. The initial take off tension is provided by dead weight arrangements.

The braiding machine is designed based on research and development experience for over a decade in the field of hose braiding machines. Penguin also manufactures cure tape wrapping and unwrapping machine, wire winding machine, spares and accessories for the hose industry.
