Vibration Isolator Damper Prep System
Automatic Screen Crinkler

The Challenge

A manufacturer of heavy duty vibration isolators required a method for taking rolls of stainless steel wire mesh and convoluting it in order to make their vibration isolators. The mesh could be anywhere in width from 1" to 12".

The Solution

Creative Automation designed and manufactured a reel-to-reel system to automatically feed and crimp wire mesh. The crimp roll configuration was developed to achieve a specified amount of convolution without breaking wires in the mesh.
