This paper proposes a new Thin-Wire Production System (TWPS) and wire conveyance module. The TWPS consists of a conveyance module, thin film deposition module, and so on. The conveyance module is a key component in the TWPS because it decides both specifications of produced wire and production system performance. The proposed conveyance module combines transportation and rotation units to achieve transportation rotating the wire. This paper proposes a new mechanism to generate transportation performance by a difference in rotation action of the transportation and rotation units. This paper verities the effectiveness of the new mechanism by experiments.
