Compact Coil lines manufactured by Rowe© are designed specifically to handle coil stock in a space-saving footprint. The compact coil line incorporates a motorized uncoiler, servo controlled straightener/feeder and an optional coil-loading car all mounted in a spacesaving footprint. This compact coil line provides coil material loading, uncoiling, straightening and feeding while only requiring 14' of floor space. Because the material is straightened at the entrance to the press, no looping pit is required. A unique feature of the Rowe© SpaceManager™ series of compact coil lines is the ability to process materials with either top or bottom payoff from the uncoiler for maximum versatility. The Compact Coil SpaceSaver™ Line is equipped with Entrance and Exit Feed Rolls with a precision straightener mounted between them, which makes it ideal for the tough jobs that require a higher degree of straightening. The Entrance Feed Rolls can be used to thread the material in the machine. After thread up, they assist the Exit Feed Rolls in accurately positioning the material. With two sets of Feed Rolls, the Compact SpaceSaver™ Coil Line provides twice as much "Grip Force" as units equipped with a single set of feed rolls. In some tough applications, all the straightening rolls may be powered, reducing material slippage and ensuring an accurate part length.
A touchscreen control with machine help screens and fault diagnostics is available. The latest technology in electronics, microprocessors and software has been incorporated in the Rowe© SpaceManager™ control providing unsurpassed automation at affordable prices. Touchscreen control package includes 500-job memory, feed length control, feed speed control and digital roll position readouts. Jobs can be selected locally at the SpaceManager™ touchscreen control or via a communications port.
