Aluminum Material Handling


Unable to Effectively Integrate with Third-Party Coating Line.

The client manufactures aluminum tubing for HVAC systems. They needed new equipment designed and built to uncoil, guide, inspect, mark, size and then re-coil in the precise manner after the MPE was coated in customer supplied machinery in order to integrate with equal speed and precision.


PD&B Inc. delivered a totally integrated line that provided exact control over the line speed and tension with the added benefit of near level winding spooling of the tube.  We achieved that utilizing our standard Floor Loading Decoiler (FLD), our sizing/marking station, custom controls design and build, total system program integration, a proprietary web cooling package and a servo driven Floor Loading Coiler (FLC).  The customer is enjoying increased productivity and greater efficiencies resulting in a more competitive market position
