Oscillate Wound/Ribbon Wound

Oscillate winding is a technique that ws develooped to aid in winding and shipping customer orders for multiples. (Multiples are created by slitting or shearing a coil into any width or set of widths) The slits are wound back and forth on a mandrel in the same manner that a fishing line is taken up on a reel; that is left to right, right to left, left to right. This allows for multiples to be wrapped on one wide coil that is easily handled in shipping.
