  • Patent number: 4292114
    Abstract: Method and apparatus for winding wire on a double flanged spool by means of a single spooler wherein the wire is automatically carried from a feed roller toward the spindle by grasping the free end of an endless wire, guiding the grasped end in an orbital path about a spindle, until a portion remote from the wire is grasped by another means adjacent to the spindle and wire is then caused to be cast from the other grasping means over the end flange of the spool and onto the spool itself. Thereafter the wire is wound about the spool after which, the wire is automatically grasped and cut from the spool by the orbital means so as to restart a new cycle of winding.

  • Patent number: 4098467
    Abstract: Filamentary material is continuously wound on a pair of rotating spools, provided with feed means for excursively drawing the material to the spools and a transfer device for changing the feed of the material from one spool to the other. The transfer device is moved from association with the spool around which the material is being first wound to the spool around which the material is to be next wound in advance of the actual changeover of feed of said material from one spool to the other.
