Abstract : The patent relates to a motor driven wire crimper and former for making magnetostrictive scroll transducer spacers. A wire is gear-crimped and gear-formed by passing it through a pair of horizontal gear wheels and subsequently through a pair of vertical gear wheels. The first pair of gear wheels crimps the wire to form high frequency undulations in the wire, which then is fed into the second pair of gear wheels to form low frequency undulations in a direction perpendicular to the low frequency undulations. Both pairs of gear wheels are driven by a common variable speed motor.
