Coil Handling Equipment and Automatic Feed and Drop Hydraulic Press Technology
Hydraulic press equipment, especially those designed for coating applications, have advanced to the point where they can be used for much heavier applications and better performance than ever before. Advances in hydraulic press operation, coating applications, and automation are revolutionizing press rooms everywhere. Coil handling equipment is one of the key components that makes this transformation possible. Press rooms can now take care of much more than just pulling and pushing. New techniques and upgraded parts are making it possible for press rooms to perform a wide range of tasks.
Coils come in all shapes and sizes and perform many different functions. The types of coils are designed to do particular jobs better than others and most are specially engineered for a specific application. A good example of this is the variable speed reels which provide better accuracy and control over temperature than regular roller reels, even for higher speed operations. Variable speed coils also allow for faster and easier coating applications, especially when coiling at more than 40 PSI.
Another vital piece of coil handling equipment is the vertical coil upender. These special tilt up units are a vital part of all hydraulic press tables and are designed to allow for the precise up and down movement needed in coating applications. The vertical coil upenders are also typically fitted with a variable speed control to allow for even more precise movements. These types of upenders often come with both a tilting and a locking mechanism to further control the speed and precision of movements. In addition to the vertical tilt up reel, there are also models designed for horizontal movement in addition to the vertical.
Another important piece of the hydraulic press table is the steel coil handling equipment spool. These pieces of steel coils allow for the quick and easy transfer of fluid from one part of the machine to another. When selecting the type of steel coil to be used in the hydraulic system, it is important that these coils have been specially designed for that particular application. As well as the size and the material of the coil, it is important that the coil be designed and built in a way that allows for easy and quick removal of the fluid.
Other important pieces of coil handling equipment include the air upender and the ac variable speed loop controls. The air under is essentially a small pump which is used to transfer air from the compressor to the reels when pressing the trigger for the high pressure hydraulic plunger. The ac variable speed loop controls are generally used in conjunction with either one or two steel coils that are fitted to the top of the air upender. Once the air has been introduced into the hopper, it can then be ejected through the hopper either using the trigger or a hydraulic handle to guide the action. The air can then be reused by the compressor for subsequent applications.
Automatic feed and drop handling equipment also include a wide range of tools including the auto feed system and the automatic feed and drop hydraulic press technology. The auto feed system moves the material automatically between the hoppers via hydraulic pistons and automatically adjusts the position of the material for the appropriate position in the sheet of metal. The auto feed system uses an electric motor to power the hydraulic press technology and the material are fed into the hopper via a roller guided track. As well as being used in applications where there is a requirement for precise feeding, the automatic feed and drop hydraulic press technologies are also used in the heavy duty industrial applications where high volumes of materials can be processed on a frequent basis.
