According to the abstract* posted by the World Intellectual Property Organization: "The present disclosure relates to apparatuses configured to pre-form atomizers. The apparatus may include wick and heating element supplies configured to respectively provide a substantially continuous wick and a substantially continuous heating element. A winding mechanism is configured to wind the heating element about the wick. An adjustment mechanism is configured to adjust a position at which the winding mechanism winds the heating element about the wick. Additionally a synchronization mechanism synchronizes winding the heating element about the wick with adjustment of the position at which the heating element is wound about the wick such that the heating element defines a coiled heating element segment wound about the wick. This process may be repeated to produce multiple coiled heating element segments wound about the wick. A related method is also provided."
