If you’re in the metalworking industry, you’re probably familiar with the decoiler machine’s essential role in processing material rolls. However, did you know that adding a material stop arm to your decoiler can improve your production line’s efficiency and output quality? In this article, we’ll explore the benefits of using a material stop arm and how it can help you achieve better results.
What is a Material Stop Arm?
A material stop arm is an accessory designed to limit the movement of material rolls on a decoiler machine. It serves two purposes: first, to ensure that the material roll stays level with the production line, preventing deviations in the decoiling material strip. Second, it limits the material roll’s movement to prevent slipping or collapsing on the support plate.
Why Replace the A-Type Iron Stopper?
Traditionally, the A-type iron stopper is the standard material stop device used for decoiler machines. However, Henli has developed a material stop arm to replace it, driven by a cylinder to achieve automatic material stoppage. This device provides a better material stop effect, simpler operation, and shorter processing time. It’s particularly suitable for stopping various wide-format and large-sized material rolls.
How Does the Material Stop Arm Work?
The material stop arm consists of two sets of upper and lower material stop groups, a material stop wheel device, a moving device, a frame, and a telescopic cylinder. The upper and lower material stop groups correspond to the material roll’s upper and lower edges, respectively. The material stop wheel device of each group can be moved closer or farther from the end of the material roll through the moving device.
The material stop rod of each material stop wheel device can be raised or lowered by its telescopic cylinder, which has self-lifting and tilting functions. When the material roll is fed, all the material stop rods of the material stop wheel devices can be lifted to avoid unnecessary damage caused by collision. When the material roll is placed on the decoiler machine’s reel, the material stop rods of each device can be lowered and adjusted to limit the material roll at the feeding position.
The material stop rod of the material stop wheel device produces a buffering effect when it approaches the material roll. This effect is achieved by the elastic body of the buffer unit and effectively extends the device’s service life.
Adding a material stop arm to your decoiler machine can help you achieve better results. It’s an innovative accessory that provides a better material stop effect, simpler operation, and shorter processing time than traditional stop devices like the A-type iron stopper. With its unique design and functionalities, it’s a must-have for anyone in the metalworking industry who wants to improve their production line’s efficiency and output quality.
