Decoiler machines are widely used in the stamping industry due to their affordability, customization options, and wide range of applications. Among the various types of decoiler machines, non-powered decoiler machines are still an essential part of the category because they can significantly reduce the floor space of the production line. However, traditional non-powered decoiler machines have a significant shortcoming when it comes to their brake devices, which makes them less suitable for high-frequency alternation of the stamping production process.
The Need for Improved Brake Devices in Non-Powered Decoiler Machines
In traditional non-powered decoiler machines, the coil is placed on a supporting tile plate, and the coil head is manually guided into the leveling machine. However, when the leveling machine feeds, it pulls the coil and the supporting tile plate to rotate together. When the leveling machine stops feeding, the rotation should also stop; otherwise, the coil will become loose and affect the subsequent feeding. However, usually, after the leveling machine stops feeding, the supporting tile plate will continue to rotate due to inertia. Therefore, non-powered decoiler machines must have a brake device for the supporting rack.
However, traditional non-powered decoiler machines cannot achieve alternate high-speed braking and release of the supporting tile plate with their brake devices. Since the feeding of the leveling machine is intermittent, the brake device of the supporting rack must also be able to alternately perform high-speed braking and release of the supporting tile plate. Without this functionality, traditional non-powered decoiler machines fall short of meeting the needs of customers for automated stamping production.
The Solution: Improved Brake Devices in Non-Powered Decoiler Machines
To address the shortcomings of traditional non-powered decoiler machines, significant improvements have been made to their brake devices. The improved brake device consists of a brake bracket, a brake disc, a brake lever, a friction plate, and a retractable cylinder. The upper and lower brake levers and brake disc are installed on the brake bracket, with the brake disc fixedly connected to the supporting tile plate. The friction plate and retractable cylinder are installed on the brake lever.
During actual use, the upper and lower brake levers are driven to rotate along the brake bracket by the cylinder extension and retraction. When the cylinder retracts, the upper and lower friction plates clamp the brake disc, immediately stopping its rotation and thus stopping the decoiler machine from releasing the material quickly. When the cylinder extends, the friction plates release the brake disc, which rotates under the drive of the rotation sleeve of the supporting tile plate. The supporting tile plate rotates freely with the rotation sleeve, realizing automatic uncoiling.
Benefits of Improved Brake Devices in Non-Powered Decoiler Machines
The new type of non-powered decoiler machine can achieve alternate high-speed braking and release of the supporting tile plate, which fundamentally meets the needs of customers for automated stamping production. With the improved brake device, non-powered decoiler machines provide better control over the uncoiling process, reducing the risk of coil becoming loose and affecting subsequent feeding. Additionally, the new design significantly improves the functionality of traditional non-powered decoiler machines, which makes them a more viable option for stamping owners who are looking to reduce the floor space of their production line.
With the improved brake device, non-powered decoiler machines have become a more reliable option for stamping owners who are looking to automate their production process. The new design meets the high-frequency alternation needs of the stamping production process and ensures better control over the uncoiling process. By reducing the need for floor space, non-powered decoiler machines can also be a cost-effective option for businesses looking to optimize their production line.
