Ductformer – Design One Coil Cradle
Ductformer offers a totally new concept in Coil Cradle Designs to make coil changeovers faster, simpler and most importantly safer. This is an under fed drop in Coil Cradle System that can be produced in a wide range of set-ups and applications for a quick change multiple Coil Payoff System.
Notice the simple one-piece mandrel design that cradles the coil between the two Powered Roller Stations. The mandrels rotate on special heavy duty, hydraulically driven, neoprene rolls for a quiet and smooth feed payoff. The coil is completely supported across it’s width to minimize damaging the inner core of the coil.
Each Uncoiler Station is independently driven and is as simple as turning a switch to select or change from one coil to another. Each Station can be jogged independently or automatically payoff with the Loop Control Sensors. A Pneumatic Hold Down Arm is provided to assist in feeding and rewinding the coil strip into the Coil Feed System.
Coil changeover can truly be a one-man operation. The one-piece tubular Mandrel eliminates the handling of heavy, awkward, and dangerous shafts and End Flanges, which sometimes require the Flanges and Bearings to be beaten onto the Shaft or into the coil. With the one piece tubular Mandrel there is nothing to catch, damage or wrap around the inside core of the coil.
With this design, partial coils can be banded and taken off the Mandrel as simply as they are loaded.
Coil Load Sequence
The flush side design allows the Lift Truck easy access to the Mandrel. There’s no obstruction to prevent for maximum stability.
The outer flange weighs approximately 60 pounds and is much easier to remove and handle. The Mandrel is simply fed through the coil. The outer flange is then slipped back onto the Mandrel.
With the open wide saddle design there’s no need for another person to help guide or lock in the other side. The coil and Mandrel remain steady and stable throughout the coil changeover.
Ductformer new concept design can be loaded with an Overhead Crane or Fork Truck. This eliminates handling of heavy dangerous and awkward coil flanges and shafts. It not only saves your load time, it’s also the safest Coil Cradle System on the market.
Ductformer strives to provide only the latest designs and technology in Duct Fabrication.
