The CSF lines work to uncoil material by holding the coil's outer diameter while accurately indexing the material to the press with a combination piloting straightener-feeder. Where traditional CSFs unwind the coil from the bottom, COE's design unwinds from the top, which produces a small slack loop for improved straightening-feeding performance.
For improved feeding accuracy and tool life, the new design relies upon a hydraulic pilot release function, which effectively releases both the feeding rolls and straightening rolls. This is an improvement over traditional CSF"s, which typically do not effectively raise the straightening rolls. These systems can process coil widths up to 60" wide, coil O.D.'s up to 63" , and coil weights up to 20,000 lbs.
Standard features include two driven coil support rollers, two exit pinch rolls (3.93" dia.) and seven straightening rolls (3.93" dia.). All rolls are synchronously driven. Also standard is hydraulic opening/closing of the Alligator" style straightening head for material threading and roll cleaning, a hold down arm with a motorized endwheel, and a snubber/peeler for hands-free material threading.
Additionally, COE's updated ServoMaster 3 Controller provides 500-job memory storage, "on-the-fly" length micro adjustment, batch control, bi-lingual programming, feed interrupt-continue interlocks, and many more efficiency enhancing features.
