Packaging methods vary depending on the material, shipment mode, and destination, whether it’s hot- or cold-rolled strip, galvanized, or painted. The most important thing is to move the coils carefully to avoid damage and thus loss of value. We design systems that are unique to you. Semi-automated or completely automatic packing modules are employed and incorporated into the transport systems, depending on the desired level of automation.
Packaging Line for Steel Coils
- With the robot automation packing facility applied to all processes, the complete line may be run with a minimal number of workers.
- Metallic coil packing automation line for the smart idea in preparation for the 4th commercial Revolution is practicable.
- It may provide a “complete solution” of cutting-edge steel packing lines based on a new technology idea developed by our company.
coil packaging line can be taped or banded while the slitter is running, thanks to a turret recoiler with two rewind drums and two overarm separators positioned on a 180–degree rotating platform.
Where does the coil packing line begin and the slitting process end? Perhaps it starts at the slitting line’s exit end, rather than at the turnstile or coil downender.
Tail Banding on Coils
Taping or banding the slit coil tails is the initial production bottleneck, thus this process must be sped up for successful coil packaging.
When all coil tails are cut in a straight line across the coil, a shear put at the slitting line’s exit end can save time by removing the time spent jogging the recoiler to position individual coil tails. A tail hold–down device attached to the recoiler can save time by confining and tightening each coil tail, making OD taping and banding faster, easier, and safer.
Coil tails can be taped or banded while the slitter is running thanks to a turret recoiler with two rewind drums and two overarm separators positioned on a 180–degree rotating platform. Filler plate changes, drum changes, and drum maintenance may all be done while production is running with a turret recoiler. Because the coil ID tail will not tangle, using a coil car to carry slit coils from the recoiler drum to the turnstile arm can be more efficient.
Handling of Slit Coils
The downender, a component that collects individual slit coils from the turnstile arm and sets them eye–axis–vertical on a conveyor, is the next component in the packing process.
There are two types of downenders:
One is a pusher. Individual slit coils from the turnstile arm are pushed onto the downender arbour by a coil push-off located on the turnstile arm. Coils are put onto the downender arbour, tipped 90 degrees, placed on a conveyor, and discharged. This downender is normally operated by a full–time attendant utilizing push buttons.
- It can be customized. A programmable downender glides to the coil on the turnstile, lifts it off the turnstile arm, carries it away from the turnstile, and tips the coil into the conveyor instead of putting it onto the Downunder.
This downender is totally automated, although coil sizes must be programmed into the controller by an attendant. There are no turnstile pushers required, which reduces the risk of damage to the inner wrapping.
