Each Uncoiler Station is independently driven and is as simple as turning a switch to select or change from one coil to another. Moreover, each Station can be jogged independently or automatically payoff with the Loop Control Sensors. Additionally Pneumatic Hold Down Arm is provided to assist in feeding and rewinding the coil strip into the Coil Feed System.
All in all, a coil changeover can truly be a one person operation. The one piece tubular Mandrel eliminates the handling of heavy, awkward, and dangerous shafts and End Flanges. This sometimes requires the Flanges and Bearings to be beaten onto the Shaft or into the coil. However, with the one piece tubular Mandrel there is nothing to catch, damage or wrap around the inside core of the coil.
Furthermore, with this design, partial coils can be banded and taken off the Mandrel as simply as they are loaded.

The flush side design allows the Lift Truck easy access to the Mandrel. Hence there is no obstruction to prevent for maximum stability.
Equally important 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 is 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.
