Benefits of the New Coil Winding Machine
Northlake Engineering Custom Transformer Expertise


When manufacturing custom high voltage transformers, it is vital that they exceed all industry requirements and standards. Therefore, high voltage transformers must be produced with superior quality materials, intricate designs and robust configurations. Very precise coil winding machinery is used to achieve these stringent high voltage requirements. Hence, why the Northlake Engineering facility in Bristol, WI recently introduced a new coil winding machine.

Benefits of the New Coil Winding Machine

The new coil winding machine is designed to help create high voltage transformers more quickly and without errors. Therefore, the machine operates via programmable logic controls (PLC) that use custom transformer winding software controlled from a computer. Programming that winds and feeds the interlayer paper automatically. Resulting in significant production cost cuts and 40% increased output compared to the previous equipment. Additionally, the PLC operation further reduced overall training time for operators from six months down to one.
