Types of Coil Handling Equipment
Coil handling equipment is used in various industries to increase production efficiency by reducing downtime due to broken parts or worn out equipment. The basic function of this equipment is to maintain an assembly line in full swing by supporting the equipment as it moves through various stages of the manufacturing process. A coil stock handler maintains smooth functioning of a hand-operated tool upender, a part of the overall equipment solution for equipment manufacturers. An integrated circuit is the key to the operation of this type of system.
This component facilitates the easy control of rotary motion that is necessary for the smooth functioning of rotary reels of every type. There are basically two types of coil handling equipment: hydraulic and electric. Hydraulic operated straighteners are preferred over electric operated reels in most cases. However, both the types of straighteners have their advantages and disadvantages.
Some of the most common hydraulic coil handling equipment components include: custom designed coil springs, custom-designed hydraulic roller tracks, custom-designed hydraulic buckets, customized coil upenders, preloaders, and preloaders with flexible hose couplings. Electric-powered coil handlers, on the other hand, consist of several different kinds of applications such as: wire electrical coils, steel coil springs, flexible steel coils, and flexible metal coils. Hydraulic cylinder reels are manufactured in numerous different sizes, including: small, medium, large and extra large. These cylinder reels are used for processing medium-sized and extra-large diameter raw materials.
In the category of electrical coil handling equipment, some of the most common types include: wire electrical coil upenders, electric coil blenders, vertical coil tilting and lifting system, counterweighted vertical coil tilting and lifting system, and horizontal coil tilting and lifting system. Customized pole rollers are also widely used by companies and industries around the world. All of these equipments have one common feature that is: they all require precise installation procedures and proper maintenance procedures.
One of the best-known types of Industrial and Engineering coil handling equipment are the AC variable speed loop controls. AC variable speed loop controls or Variable Speed Loops (VLS) are very useful components which control the rate at which a particular machine moves in its fixed position. Commonly used in applications requiring robotic equipment, these parts include: screw machines, linear actuators, cutting machines, and belt-driven screw pumps. The variable speed loop is made up of an electric motor that is connected to a series of shafts that connect to each other via a gear in between. As the speed of the motor increases, so does the speed of the individual shafts.
Finally, the most important category of Coil Handling Equipment includes the hydraulic press technology. Specifically, this type includes: automatic feed systems, automated drum rolls, high-pressure die casting and stamping presses, rotary stamping presses, and other types of automatic press systems. While each of these applications may use slightly different types of coil handling equipment, the principle behind all of these pieces of equipment is the same: reduce labor costs, increase production efficiency, and simplify many processes that are required in almost every industry.
