AUTOMATIC REEL AND SHAFT HANDLING SYSTEM

The handling system consists of three items of equipment which work together automatically with the client’s extrusion line winder. This system automatically extracts the finished reel and returns the expansive shaft to the winder.

GENERAL INFORMATION

EQUIPMENT SIZES SPEED OF PROCESS AUXILIARY EQUIPMENT
1. ROLL CART: equipment used to remove rolls from the expansive shaft and transport it for packing or to be put on a pallet. 2. EXPANSIVE SHAFT EXTRACTION COLUMN: these columns automatically remove the air from the shaft and together with the roll cart allow for it to be removed from inside the reel. The operator places the new core on the shaft which is then expanded and positioned to be picked up by the gripper. 3. GRIPPER: two grips pick up the expansive shaft and then return it to winder.
To match the useful dimensions of the client’s extrusion line winder and the weight and size of the expanding roll and reels(s). Contact us to check for compatibility with your winder
The operation cycle of the three items of equipment is approximately 4 minutes (excluding manual operations by the operator, such as inserting and centring the tube and reel packaging operations). For faster speeds, please contact us
SECONDARY SUPPORT ARM: Support equipment for handling expanding rolls when they are too heavy or too long. This equipment avoids excessive flexing and breakage of the shaft tip
BENEFITS PROGRAMMING OTHER
- Less time spent on handling processes both with respect to reels and expanding rolls at the end of winding operations; - Automation of entire handling process; - Greater time availability for operator. - Enables the possibility of a fully automated process
The system is connected with the existing winder and managed via an electrical panel with touch control allowing: - Manual movement for maintenance purposes - Full configuration of all system;
Should the client wish to automate the process even further, it is possible to alter reel arms so that reel extraction with the roll and synchronisation with the table is faster and more efficient
