Coil Handling Equipment for Industrial Processes
Coil handling equipment includes anything that is related to the mechanical processes of an engine. Power-adjustable coil straighteners, hydraulic cylinder liners, oil handling cradles, air inlet valves, oil inlet ports and the various other components used for oil disposal are some examples of Coil Handling Equipment. It is very essential that these parts are well maintained to ensure long service life of the engine.
All Coil Handling Equipment must have a variable damping system. This helps the mechanical process and provides adequate insulation from high temperatures. The coil-upender must be made up of a variety of different materials to suit the varied requirements of different industries. Some of the commonly used materials in the construction of coil handling equipment are steel coils, aluminum alloy wire, polyester mesh and nylon braided.
A number of manufacturers specialize in producing customized, high-quality coil handling equipment for many different applications. There are two basic categories; Feeding and Reserve Feeding. Feeding reels are usually adjustable and used for small pump-driven pump cranes. Reserve feeding reels are much larger than feeding reels and are most often used on the larger cranes. Both of these types of cranes require wide widths of spindles, which must be precise and compatible with the diameter of the machine spindle.
Servo-driven cradles use oil or compressed air feeds as well as the conventional air hydraulic systems. The servo-feeding machines need more precise widths of spindles and are usually used on the large cradles such as vertical and horizontal air feeds. These large cradles generally need the best quality servo-driven coil handling equipment available. Such equipment comprises of high precision servo-driven coil springs, high speed electric motors, and high quality gears and bearings. These pieces of equipment are the heart and soul of all the mechanical assemblies of a crane.
Some other important components that must be present in a high quality machine are high-speed electric motors, precision die casting and die cutting, high quality aluminum forging tools, high-quality high pressure sodium vapor compression fittings, reliable and durable metal fabrication parts, high precision oil feed supplies and a wide range of high-tech computer software that makes sure that all the machine’s intricate workings are executed flawlessly. One of the most popular uses for these machines is for deep drawing operations. It is important that cradles and other similar pieces of machinery have the right type of crossfeed features so that drawings are not interrupted mid-depth. In addition to this, accurate and smooth crossed functionality is required for intricate and delicate tasks such as 3D drawing of plans, engineering schematics and other similar drawings. Such functions require high precision and smooth functioning of the crossfeeds. In order to meet all these requirements, coil handling equipment manufacturers incorporate various technologies in their machines such as hydraulic presses, die cutters, and stamping presses.
With the advent of modern technology, hydraulic presses, die cutters, and stamping presses have become highly efficient in their mechanical processes. They also feature automatic lubrication which significantly increases productivity. Automatic lubrication is achieved by means of an automatically controlled lubrication system that provides a continuous flow of lubricant. The efficiency of such machines is increased when such pieces of equipment are fitted with high speed electric motors. This allows the operators to perform more work in less time.
