All functions in the station are actuated by hydraulic cylinders capable of providing the force and speed required across a broad range of materials (.020" - .250" thickness). The two-axis peeler table features a telescoping peeler blade to reach the leading edge of the coil, and is designed with tapered ends to facilitate threading of wide coils. The upper dekinker table is mounted for independent operation and comes with a motorized threading roll, which is driven by a hydraulic motor.
The system operates by pinching the leading edge of the coil between the threading roll and peeler table. The peeler table is then lowered or raised to achieve effective dekinking. The threading mechanism operates in tandem with a reel-mounted hold-down and motorized endwheel.
