MTM developed through a 30 years long experience in the field a fully automatic “hands-free” work-cycle.
The automatic entry line consists in:
- peeler device for coil opening
- double decoiler with clamping vices fixed on the turret and with strip containment rolls (see picture)
- automatic shear and end welding unit for cutting and joining the strip
- horizontal accumulator to continuously feed the tubemill line while coils are placed on decoiler and strip ends joined
This configuration can continuously feed any coil processing line at a speed up to 200 m/min without any stoppage and requires only one operator to be implemented.
The work-cycle is designed in order to minimize operator direct intervention. This is particularly relevant in all situations in which the task is to reduce cost of labour, but not only. Most of all the automation increases line’s performance and safety.
MTM has always considered safety first. This is why on our hands free strip preparation all the risky tasks are automatically carried out without the operator's intervention.
Automatic work-cycle is also designed so to let operator perform his tasks carefully and not in a hurry, with positive impact once again on safety and on an error free performance of the line.
MTM had many successes in upgrading the performances of coil processing lines by the introduction of its automated strip preparation section.
