Scalable, modular drive designs, consistent automation, and high-performance hardware and software ensure fast and easy automation for your plant.

Solutions for wire drawing and winding

Efficient automation of wire processing machines


Patented solution for active wire tension control with minimum fluctuation in drawing force

Continued growth in electromobility is leading to increased demands on machines for the automated production of electrostators for electric motors. In addition to maximum productivity, shorter setup times for changing products, and high winding quality, this trend is also focused on plant availability and use in the powertrain.


Whether it’s for needle, flyer, or linear winding technique, or hairpin technology, Siemens has a comprehensive portfolio for the consistent automation of the entire electric motor production and for recording the necessary process parameters. 


A scalable approach to controlling sometimes very complex motion sequences is based on the SIMATIC S7-1500T technology CPU for standard machines and on the proven SIMOTION motion control system for high-end machines.

Likewise, Siemens can provide a plan to implement systems in the powertrain based on the existing Transline standards for machine tools, along with consulting and powerful support for integration.

Core topic: wire tension control

A patented control procedure developed by Siemens lets you control the wire tension process and minimize force fluctuations, even with right-angled coil bodies. The result: shorter winding times and better quality.


The scalable Siemens portfolio provides the right product for all winding machines: the SIMATIC S7-1500 controller is perfect for basic applications, while the SIMOTION motion control system covers all high-end tasks, and SINAMICS S120 booksize drives with highly dynamic servomotors are ideal for winding applications.
