Design and simulation of automatic tape winding system
Based on two-axis manual tape winding machine, this paper describes and developes 3-axis automatic tape winding system. Beginning with motor analysis, discussion on the relationship between motors torque, angular velocity and winder inertia, calculation of required torque and tape tension, and connecting hardware parameters with estimated physical environment. The second part provides two methods for tension measurement and two methods of tension control, comparing their differences and errors. Then associates with previous calculations, we converted the hardware parts into mathematical model in MATLAB/ Simulink, separated the whole system into control module with PID control algorithm, motor drive and spindle model module. The simulation of the closed-loop tension control winding system is finally realized.
