Floor Loading Decoiler (FLD)
An industry first, our FLD system enables operators to load spools simply by rolling them in and out as required. When loading, they move it into the loading zone, push a few buttons to clamp the spool and then raise it into the ready position. It’s that simple.
Next the material is threaded into the downstream equipment and secured within it. At this point the FLD coiling system sensor array checks for spool diameter and left to right web position. Finally, at start up, speed and position corrections are made allowing for the centered payoff process to begin.
This uncoiling machine has resulted in accelerated paybacks due to significant reductions in downtime. When the material runs out, the time it takes to change out spools is dramatically reduced, which reduces labor costs and increases profit.
