Press Release – Benchtop Winder now has the ability to monitor wind angle using an incorporated inspection camera. – Oct. 2020
October 2020 – The Benchtop Winder now has the ability to monitor wind angle using an incorporated inspection camera. The operator can see the filament on the color monitor and can “bump” the pitch up/down to adjust winding angle. This allows winding tight-pitch coils that would normally require vision angle control, like is available in […]
November 2019 – A new version of the Tube Expander Free Expanding machine is now available to reliably expand tubing up to 3/8 inch outside diameter for a lower machine cost, starting at $120k. This expander contains all the EBD expansion technology but has been reconfigured to enable a significant reduction in price. Reconfiguration consisted […]
Press Release – Braider Respooler is now available from EBD as a method to reload Steeger or similar type bobbin spools – July 2019
July 2019 – The Braider Respooler is now available from EBD as a method to reload Steeger or similar type bobbin spools. This respooler can fill 8 spools per set-up. Typical braiders use 16 spools so this respooler could fill 16 in two unattended cycles. No more waiting for prefilled Bobbins. EBD technology allows precise […]
June 2017 – The Desktop Winders mission is to provide the lowest cost mandrel coil winder available, allowing basic coil winding with superior results. “Our goal was to provide the industry a performance Coil Winder at a rock bottom price,” states Dale Henson, P.E. and President of Engineering By Design. View the desktop coil winder.
September 2016 – The Latest product to our Benchtop equipment series is ready to amaze. Its size and low cost were specifically developed for the Research and Development arena but suitable for production needs. The standard systems size and weight were designed for a standard 60” benchtop. This new system will accept up to DIN […]
Press Release – Reduced footprint Reel to Reel Spooler platform designed for savings ready to ship – December 2015.
December 2015: Our Standard Reel to Reel spooler has been redesigned for savings. Realize a 50% reduction in size and cost with minimum performance reductions using our new PLC platform. The tension control of these units will complement our winders for providing manageable spools of supply wire.
June 2013: Engineering by Design, of San Jose Ca, is now offering a new version of their tube expander for cross-linked polymers. This new version machine promotes the latest technology for closed loop pressure control of accurate expanded tubing diameters.
March 2012: Engineering by Design, of San Jose Ca, has now released the next generation Double Vision Winder to meet the coil industry’s ever demanding needs. The new modularity of this system adapts easily to customer customizations. Filament tensions can now be easily changed from the standard range of 5-80 grams up to 40-600 grams […]
January 2012: Engineering by Design, of San Jose Ca, just installed their first generation cable notching line with overwhelming success. This automated system replaced a hand operated machine increasing the throughput over 10x.
Patent Numbers 7,891,597 and 7,997,521 Awarded for “tension Control System for a Continuous Winding Machine”
August 2011: Dale Henson, of San Jose CA, used this technology to enable wireless control of tension on a spinning wind head powered by a rotary transformer as designed by a former satellite design engineer. The wireless communication allows tension set points to be changed remotely while the new system maintains the linked servo loops […]
