Designed for high volume production of single wire hexagonal or square section single wire beads, the SWS-6000 breaks the traditional cost barriers associated with hexagonal bead productivity. The system is controlled via a powerful software program capable of integrating the synchronized operations of the five axis Servo System which drive the winder, pay-on head, head height, accumulator and the optional servo-driven former expand/collapse function. Machine parameters are digitally monitored and controlled by a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and a menu driven touch screen so that at each stage the operator is guided to obtain the desired machine operation.


• A SWS-6000 Bead Winder, automatically producing six single wire beads per machine cycle. The winder is complete with a servo driven former assembly for precise speed and position control, a servo driven pay-on head, a servo driven head height adjust assembly and an optional servo driven former expand/collapse feature. The SWS-6000 uses an adjustable radially expanding former design and an automatic bead unloader that deposits the finished beads onto the four-arm carousel. The carousel allows for the temporary storage of beads.

• A Serpentine Festoon that is servo driven. The position and speed of the festoon is precisely controlled by the system PLC/Servo system to match the winder speed. The serpentine festoon design allows for independent speeds of each of the six wire paths.

• A Bartell Cold Feed Plastiscrew Extruder complete with Temperature Control Units and the Bartell 5601 insulating head or the optional pressure control head.

• Let-Off Equipment consisting of six Heavy Duty Let-Off Stands, a six station gathering rail and a guide roll stand.

• Integrated Control System, including PLC and Servo system drives and motors, for automatic control of the process

• Operator Interface Terminal containing menu screens, run screens, manual screens and diagnostic screens.

• We strongly recommend as original equipment, electrically interlocked perimeter guarding designed and integrated by Bartell.

Our machines are designed to meet government and industry standards around the world. The Bartell SWS-6000 is a tried and tested machine, capable of placing at the tire designer’s disposal a single wire hexagonal bead with enhanced uniformity and reduced bead weight properties.
