retrofits & refurbs
upgrading what you've already got
system and equipment upgrades and refurbishment
Capital equipment investments are nothing to be taken lightly. So, it’s important to get the best performance and service life you can from your equipment. But, sometimes new materials and production requirements can challenge equipment. COE provides a number of options that can help improve the productivity of your existing coil feeding line.
A simple controls upgrade can help you gain productivity in affordable ways. COE offers control packages that can be quickly implemented into existing lines, whether the original equipment is COE or produced by another manufacturer.
ServoMaster® Touch. Available in six different drive sizes from 2” – 8” in diameter and 6” – 78” wide.
High Power Retrofits (COE HPR). For any size roll feed, DC motors from 50 – 500 HP
SyncMaster® integrated controls. Allows operators to manage feed and straightener
functions, setups and diagnostic reviews from a single, user-friendly touchscreen.
If your existing feeds, straighteners, and reels are functioning, but seem to be a bit challenged by throughput requirements or new materials, there are a number of improvements that COE can provide to boost your productivity.
Straightener Capacity. Straighteners can be upgraded and/or retrofit to effectively process today’s Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS) with COE’s new, high-performance drives and motors, improved reduction packages and straightener packages designed specifically for processing AHSS.
Coil Containment. Upgrades to the threading drive system and the addition of hold-down arms, lower hold-up arms, and motorized end-wheels can help stampers safely process a wider variety of materials.
-Load Direction Changes. Changing the loading direction of the coil reel or the controls position on the straightener and servo feed can give stampers the flexibility to improve plant layout.
Threading Safety. Existing coil feed lines can be upgraded with thread tables, peeler tables, debenders, and hands-free peeler/threader hold-downs to improve coil change efficiency and safety.
-Motorized Line Functions. Machine axis such as passline height setting, edge guide adjustments, and straightener roll depth settings can be effectively motorized to enhance setup speed and consistency.
Line Speed. Upgrades to the machine drive and reducer package can double coil rate speeds—up to 100 FPM.
