Wire home-stead of AWSM machine. System for very precise driving of wire moving, loading and unloading wire on the spool, regulation of tension and speed of wire (wire diameter from 140 to 200 microns). Wire from spool A is moved on the spool B with speed 8 - 12 m/sec, total length up to 600 km, tension 2500 - 3000 cN with accuracy 1 - 2 cN in all regimes - Quick start and quick stop too (trough 15 seconds) without wire breaking. All run in both directions etc.

Intellectual, production, & financial bases - Silicon 2008, new technologies & machines AWSM, SQM for slicing of Si ingots and other hard materials
