In the realm of automated stamping production, the paramount goal is ensuring top-notch quality for stamped products. This necessitates a seamless synergy of high-precision stamping presses, advanced feeding equipment, molds, and top-grade stamping materials. Thus, priming the material before stamping becomes crucial. This involves material flattening, internal stress elimination, and enhancing flatness to perfection. Enter the hero of the hour: the two-in-one uncoiling and leveling machine.

Types of Uncoiler Section

The uncoiler section of the two-in-one uncoiling and leveling machine manifests in two distinctive forms: powered and unpowered variants.

Powered Uncoiler:

Powered by a motor via a gearbox and belt, the main shaft orchestrates the rotation of the uncoiler plate, effortlessly unwinding the coil. Ensuring synchronization with the leveling section, the powered uncoiler boasts photoelectric sensors or 24V inductive racks. These sensors control the initiation and cessation of the uncoiling process. A remarkable feat of automation is witnessed as when the material sags to a specific arc, it triggers the sensor or interrupts the light beam, promptly halting the uncoiler. The resumption of feeding occurs once the material disengages from the sensor or no longer obstructs the light beam, achieving seamless automation.

Unpowered Uncoiler:

Devoid of an electric box or motor, the unpowered uncoiler relies on the pulling force from the leveling section to facilitate material feeding while leveling. To ensure operational stability, a ring-brake brake adorns the main shaft, its tightness adjustable via a handwheel rotation. Operators fine-tune the feeding stability based on handwheel feedback, vigilantly observing the material to forestall loose coils induced by the leveling section’s inertia.

Working Principle of Leveling Machine Section

The leveling machine section comprises transmission components and a robust base. The transmission mechanism encompasses a motor, transmission gearbox, sprocket at the gearbox’s output shaft end, transmission shaft, gears on the leveling frame, leveling rollers, and feeding rollers. Levelling maneuvers are executed by the feeding and leveling rollers, with meticulous adjustments to the feeding rollers pre-levelling to ensure seamless material passage.

When employing the two-in-one uncoiling and leveling machine, fine-tuning of the leveling handle commences, guided by the material’s thickness and ductility. The leveling effect is scrutinized during adjustments, with inadequate outcomes prompting incremental pressure adjustments on the leveling rollers. However, a delicate balance is imperative, as excessive pressure may incite ripples and imprint roller marks on the material. Thus, adjustments mandate meticulous and iterative fine-tuning for optimal outcomes.
