The SpaceMaster Compact Coil Line machines combine the three functions of unwinding, straightening and feeding of coil stock into one piece of compact equipment ideal for space-constrained applications. This compact arrangement provides programmable coil feeding with pilot release operation and saves valuable plant floor space.
The lines installed at Tri-Con are COE model CCL-S3-11024, which can handle coils from 3" to 24" wide, coil diameter of up to 64", 11,000# coil weight, and material from 0.156" to 0.250" thickness depending upon width. With a roll speed of 160 FPM, these machines come with all necessary features for effective coil containment, hands-free threading, and accurate feeding of the coil strip. True pilot release functionality is provided by the pivoting feeder-straightener.
The SpaceMaster components are rigidly mounted on a common machine base for maximum stability during the feeding process. Both the coil reel and the feeder-straightener are driven by AC digital control servo drives and motors.
