SCIMA-8000 Automatic Stator Cell Inserter Machine


  • Automatic form, cut and insertion of cell insulation into stators with cell material up to 0.5mm (0.022 inch) thickness.
  • Cell insulator length preset in Operator Control and obtained by high resolution servo motor driving form rolls.
  • Cell material cut lengths up to 92 mm (3.63 inches).
  • Cell insulator length on most insulating materials +/- 0.15mm at 1.33 CpK.
  • Load and unload determined by machine model.
  • ALLEN-BRADLEY SLC-500 Programmable Controller.
  • Allen Bradley Data Table Access Module, 2 line and 16 characters.
  • Operator Control Panel on movable pendant.
  • Sensor to detect paper movement.
  • Low material, malfunction, and cycle interrupt lights.
  • Automatic dereeler for uncoiling cell material from incoming rolls.
  • Guarding with electrical interlocks.
  • Welded steel frame and robust side plates.
  • Metric construction where possible.
  • Cycle time typically 6 seconds for two cell papers


  • SCIMA-8000 – BORE HORIZONTAL Automatic Load and Unload with bore horizontal from guide rail or belt conveyor.
  • SCIMA-8000p – BORE HORIZONTAL Automatic Load and Unload with bore vertical from pallet system.
  • SCIMA-8000V – BORE VERTICAL Automatic Load and Unload with bore vertical from belt conveyor.


Tooling to accommodate most insulating materials including rag, paper, laminates, mylar, or other similar plastic materials and laminates up to 0.5mm (0.022 inch) thickness.  Thicker materials require custom designs.

Tooling consisting of upper and lower form rolls, cell cavity, anvil, arbor, ram, clamp, tamp blade, and knife.

Tooling designed to provide cell material formed to precisely fit the contour of the lamination and extend at least 1.6 mm (1/16 inch) beyond pole tips.


  • Notching die in one location as cell material can be preprogrammed to be indexed to the die cut position and then to the cut off position.
  • Material slitting mechanism to automatically cut cell material to desired width. Width to be 3.2 mm (0.125 inch) wider than desired final width.
  • Quick change part number stamping mechanism with tooling.


Electrical Requirements

  • Standard 3 KVA; 240, 330, 416, and 480 Volts.
  • 3-phase; 50/60 Hertz.
  • Special voltages are available upon request.

Pneumatic Requirements

  • A 0.5 in. (13 mm), 100 psi (6.8 atm) capacity air line should supply the machine.  A supplied pressure regulator will reduce pressure to 80 psi (5.4 atm) for machine operation.
