Abstract:

TWO GENERAL APPROACHES TO FLAT WINDING ARE DISCUSSED. IN ONE METHOD, THE WINDING SEQUENCE BEGINS BY WINDING THE FIRST LAYER ON A SPIRAL PATTERN INSIDE TO OUT, THEN WINDING THE NEXT LAYER OUTSIDE TO IN. IN ANOTHER METHOD, TWO SUCCESSIVE LAYERS ARE WOUND BY METERING OUT A PREDETERMINED LENGTH SUFFICIENT FOR A WINDING OUT FROM THE CORE AND BACK, HOLDING METERED FIBER ON AN AUXILIARY SPOOL, WINDING FROM CENTERTO PERIPHERY ON TWO LAYERS SIMULTANEOUSLY WITH COUNTER ROTATING DRIVESWHILE PAYING METERED FIBER OFF THE AUXILIARY SPOOL. OPTELECOM PROPOSES TO DOCUMENT THE REQUIREMENTS FOR FLAT WINDING FROM A FUNCTIONAL POINT OF VIEW, TO PRODUCE DRAWINGS AND/OR MODELS ILLUSTRATING TWO OR MORE FLAT WINDING MECHANISMS, TO EVALUATE MECHANISMS AND SELECT ONE FOR FURTHER DEVELOPMENT, TO BUILD A PROOF OF CONCEPT VERSION OF THE SELECTED MECHANISM, TO PRODUCE AND TEST FLAT WINDINGS, AND TO DEVISE AN ADHESIVE METHODOLOGY SUITABLE FOR FLAT WINDINGS.
