The workhorse for multi-axis production

So expansive the possibilities are limited only by the imagination!

The Cyclone is McClean Anderson’s precision multi-axis production filament winder.  Best suited for winding applications where high precision is required.

The Cyclone is driven by the Windows® based Ocelot machine control and Simwind pattern development software.

Machine Control
McClean Anderson’s Ocelot machine control system is a PC / PLC based system that makes filament winding simpler, faster and more accurate. Since the system is PC-based, users can develop and edit programs right at the control with SimWind part development software – even while winding!

McClean Anderson’s SimWind is an advanced offline software programming tool used for designing and modeling complex filament wound structures. During part program development, winding simulations can be rendered with ease, allowing the users to analyze a multitude of winding scenarios in a matter of seconds.
