Class Information
Number: 242/476.7
Name: Winding, tensioning, or guiding > Helical or random winding of material > Distributing material along the package
Description: Subject matter wherein the winding station includes material traversing means for systematically shifting the point where the material meets the take-up member (i.e., the winding point), typically in reversely directed back and forth strokes generally parallel to the axis of the take-up member, to orderly accumulate convolutions of material on the take-up member.
