Optimizing Decoiling Machines through Advanced Configurations
Decoiling machines play a crucial role in automated production, and Henli has developed a range of optional configurations to optimize their functionality and adaptability for various stamping processes. Two common add-ons include pressure arms and support arms. But when should these additional features be utilized?
Understanding the Roles of Pressure Arms and Support Arms in Decoiling Machines
Pressure arms are designed to secure the outer ring of materials during the decoiling process. By doing so, they prevent issues with loose material and maintain consistent pressure during continuous feeding. This ensures a seamless decoiling process. Support arms, conversely, help manage the material head after decoiling. Working in conjunction with a leveling machine, they enable stable feeding while avoiding damage to the material’s edges. Both optional features are highly recommended for materials with a thickness of 2.0 mm or greater.
When a decoiling machine is outfitted with both pressure and support arms, it is often used alongside a thick plate leveling machine or a leveling and feeding machine. This combination creates a two-in-one thick plate leveling machine or a three-in-one feeding machine. In this article, we explore the operation methods for these machines when equipped with pressure and support arms, as explained by Henli:
1.Adjust the pressure arm of the decoiling machine to a higher position and the support arm to a lower position to prevent contact during the coiling process.
2.Use the independent handle to press the “shrink” button, adjusting the expansion and contraction drum to a diameter smaller than the material roll’s inner diameter.
3.Utilize a hoist or forklift to load the material roll onto the decoiling machine’s expanding drum, aligning it near the inner side of the material stopper arm, and expand the drum to secure the material.
4.Clamp the material by pressing down the left and right material stopper arms of the decoiling machine.
5.Lower the pressure arm, ensuring the pressure wheel firmly engages the outer ring of the material roll.
6.Start the decoiling machine, position the material roll’s head appropriately, and raise the support arm to hold the material roll.
7.Decoil the material, switch the electric control box to manual “inch forward” mode to drive the material, and position the material head near the leveling machine’s inlet. Use the leveling machine’s hydraulic feeding guide device to bend the material head, allowing it to smoothly enter the feeding roller.
8.Employ the decoiling machine’s power to continuously push the material forward, and use the leveling machine’s hydraulic feeding guide device to bend the material head, enabling it to enter the leveling roller.
9.Clamp the material by pressing down the front feeding wheel, and lower the support arm and hydraulic feeding guide device.
10.Operate the leveling machine to pass the material through the leveling rollers, feeding it into the feeding machine. The equipment is now calibrated and prepared for automatic feeding operations.
By incorporating pressure arms and support arms into the decoiling process, you can optimize the performance of your machines and ensure smooth, efficient production.
