There is a wide variety of Filament Winding and Tensioning control systems that were deployed during the 1980s and 1990s. Several companies were producing systems and implementing their own control platforms, some even including custom circuit boards.
Most if not all of these control platforms are now obsolete, which is understandable due to advancements in computing and robotics technologies since that time period.
Many of the companies which produced the majority of the filament-winding equipment in operation today have been either acquired or closed. This makes it essentially impossible to get service for these outdated, partially custom control systems.
It is not uncommon for us to find 'mission critical' machines with a PC running Windows™ NT / Windows™ 98 at the core of the equipment.
If this sounds familiar, or the photo pictured at left looks familiar, now is the time to take action.
