With a new drive concept, LUKAS ensures a further improvement of quality in the taping technology: Undesirable effects may occur occasionally in taping units, due to frictional wear on moving parts of the force transmission (e.g., drive belts), especially when using certain taping materials. These effects appear as an "undulation" of the diameter of the finished wire product. LUKAS has now developed a new drive concept that reduces these effects to a minimum. A hollow shaft drive together with a light weighted carbon head improves the running qualities so that frictional wear is reduced and – as a positive side-effect - the production speed can be significantly increased. Additionally, the design of our components has been revised for easier handling and better serviceability.
