AbstractAn apparatus for automatically processing the wire ends of cores includes a forming die for bending the axially projecting wire ends back to project parallel to one another generally away from the core. Cores are received in a receiving station aligned with the forming die and orientated so that the wire ends are spaced as far as possible from the die. When the wire ends are sensed to be in the correct orientation, an actuator is operated to push the core through the forming die. The core with its wire ends bent back is then preferably stepped through a series of processing stations to trim and tin the wire ends and then ejected from the machine. A series of cores can be stepped continuously one after the other through the machine.
