Wardwell Before and After

Wardwell Braiding Co. Continues to Offer Refurbishing and Upgrading Program

Refurbishing Offers a Less Expensive Option During These Uncertain Economic Times

Wardwell Before and AfterWardwell Braiding Co., Rhode Island, a world leading manufacturer of wire braiding equipment for over 100 years, wants to extend its support to customers during this uncertain time and will continue to operate at full capacity. Wardwell understands that many companies have a hold on their budget for new equipment and will continue to offer its refurbishing and upgrading program on all Wardwell Braiding machines with original, new parts as a more cost-effective option.

As machinery ages, it begins to decline in performance and consume more replacement parts. Wardwell’s braiding machines are excellent candidates to be refurbished with new parts and updated features. Options can include high-efficiency motors, drives, broken wire detection, empty bobbin detection, core run-out sensors and longitudinal taping systems. The advancements in mechanical and electronic components make retrofit a cost-effective option to improve performance on existing machines.

Wardwell Before and AfterRetrofitting is a safer option than purchasing used equipment and offers the additional benefits of reduced machine downtime and increased output, often, at a lower cost. Reconditioning is particularly suitable for Wardwell machines because wear is, generally, limited to the braiding head and rotating parts. These are easily removed, shipped to Wardwell for refurbishing, and re-installed when complete.  The work is carried out by Wardwell’s trained technicians, who evaluate the machine’s mechanical components and advise customers on the condition and options available. Electrical and safety systems are replaced with factory-original parts and modernized to comply with current standards. Machine functions are tested and validated after completion.

Wardwell Retrofit Before and AfterRetrofitting reduces or eliminates the costs associated with acquiring and evaluating used equipment, purchasing of additional replacement parts to achieve the required performance plus the training needed by operators and maintenance personnel. This process is an excellent option, especially in these times of economic uncertainty.


Wardwell, Central Falls, Rhode Island, began in 1911 as a supplier of braiding machines to the manufacturers of textile products and later developed machinery models for reinforced hose and composite structures. Since the 1970s, the company’s focus has been on specialized braiding machines that serve the wire and cable industry. Today, Wardwell is a global supplier of braiders, winders and payoffs for the wire and cable industry.
