Class Information
Number: 242/470
Name: Winding, tensioning, or guiding > Helical or random winding of material
Description: Apparatus or method for creating a storage coil formed by coiling an elongated material (e.g., textile strand, wire, or narrow web) directly on the outer surface of a take-up member adapted to be supported at a winding station while either systematically distributing convolutions of the material parallel to the axis or permitting convolutions of the coiled material to be placed at indiscriminate points along the axis in which the coiled material is removed from the winding station (i.e., removed from the means for supporting it for rotation) before unwinding the material.
