Coil handle equipment is used for handling the rollers that are present on the flat surface of the manufacture line or in the tooling stage. A coil stock handling unit feeds, holds, positions, discharges, straightens, and stores material of different weights and sizes into a pressing unit. The equipment allows manufacturers to easily control the amount of material that is fed into the press or the equipment. This enables them to determine the amount of materials that they need to press with ease.
There are many advantages of using coil handling equipment for the manufacture of flat sheets. It saves setup time since the machine does everything else, which includes, feeding lines, straightening and cutting. It also reduces material handling costs. Since the equipment maintains consistency, it improves feed-to-cut efficiency. This means less work pieces need to be cut at once or have their cutting edges sharpened to a fine point before cutting them. Some of the types of straighteners that use the coil feed are the roller deburring straightener, the vertical line feeder, the multi-line feeder and the horizontal line feeder.
There are three types of coil handling equipment: wire feeders, rotary feeders and the servo electric. The rotary feeder uses counter-rotating cylinders that rotate and feed the material either clockwise or counter-clockwise. The clockwise rotation is due to a variable-frequency drive motor. For this type of straightener, the counter-rotating cylinders can be positioned at any point so that they can also serve as feeders. Servo straighteners use a servo motor that controls the turning of the rotary cylinder. It is ideal for smaller applications and it can also be adjusted to regulate the feeding rate and the tension of the servo wire.
If you are thinking of getting a coil handling equipment, you should check out the various options that you have when it comes to feed and sizes. You should also take note of the stock widths of your motorized coil feeder. This is essential because you want the feeder to work well even with narrow stock widths. The stock widths of the different machines may vary from one to another, but the number of the different stock widths that you can have should be the same. You should also check on the bolt pattern of the machine so that you will be able to get the most out of the equipment.
It is important that you also look at the range of the coil handling equipment when you are getting one. Most of the time, these are offered in standard and high-end versions. If you intend to get high quality models, then you may have to pay more money for it. If you want to find a model with standard or low-end price, you can look for units with the minimal number of steel coils.
There are also units with automatic coil handling equipment that you can choose from. If you are going to get this, you should check on the quality of the automatic coil processing machine. You should also make sure that you are getting this from a reputable company so that you will be able to get the best results possible. There are lots of coil processing companies that offer automatic coil handling equipment, but not all of them can give you excellent results. To make sure that you will get the best results, you should do some research first before making a purchase.
