Coil Handling System Configurations

Productivity

Selecting the proper options for your system will provide big paybacks in productivity gains.

  • Eliminate waiting time for overhead cranes or lift trucks by installing coil cars and coil storage ramps Coils can be staged when convenient and are ready when the system needs them
  • Reduce handling time and increase safety with coil clamping arms and threading equipment
  • Use dual spindle uncoilers when feeding high demand systems like rolling mills or systems using partial coils
  • Use sonar loop controls to smooth the uncoiling – straightening process, maintain proper loop geometry, and deliver more consistent material to the feeder
  • Use a side shift base on the uncoiler to allow easy coil alignment and adapting for camber during processing
  • Purchase the best material possible to ensure good quality, consistent parts

SUGGESTED SYSTEM ARRANGEMENTS
Mecon Industries Limited manufactures a variety of coil processing systems.
Many factors should be considered when determining the optimum arrangement.

• Plant space available
• Crane capacity
• Lift truck capacity
• Mark sensitivity
• Material thickness
• Material width
• Material strength
• Coil handling: – load and unload partial coils, or run full coils to end
• Coil weight
• Coil inside diameter
• Coil outside diameter
• Production required: -feed length, speed, feed angle, feed time
• Process type: – progressive stamping, blanking, blank and transfer, cut to length, pre-punch, etc.
• Budget
