Decoilers are highly customizable equipment used in the stamping industry for material feeding and decoiling. They come with various optional devices, such as frequency converters, press arm attachments, hydraulic expansion devices, loading platform attachments, and photoelectric induction devices. However, there is another optional device that is not well-known but can greatly impact the decoiling process – the material support arm.
Composition of Decoiler Material Support Arm
The material support arm is composed of a frame, a material support frame, and a secondary support frame. The material support frame is pivotally mounted on the lower section of the frame, while the secondary support frame is located at one end of the material support frame corresponding to the expandable and contractible decoiling roller of the decoiler.
Operation of Decoiler Material Support Arm
The inner wall of the frame is equipped with pneumatic telescopic cylinders, and the extending rod of the telescopic cylinder is connected to the rear end of the material support frame to drive it to rotate up and down around the pivot point. The frame’s lower section’s inner side walls have corresponding side seats, and a corresponding pair of arc-shaped guide grooves are formed on the side seats. The guide wheels on both sides of the secondary support frame can slide in the guide grooves, allowing the decoiler material support arm to perform the action of expansion and contraction along the guide grooves.
In use, the decoiler material support arm is driven by retracting the extending rod of the telescopic cylinder downwards. This directly drives the material support frame to pivot around the pivot point of the frame, causing the other end of the material support frame to extend forward and upward. Since the secondary support frame is slidably mounted in the guide grooves of the side seats by the guide wheels, the secondary support frame can be connected and driven to extend forward, improving the smoothness of the material feeding. Conversely, when retracting the material support arm driving structure, extending the rod of the telescopic cylinder upwards directly drives the other end of the material support frame to retract downward. The secondary support frame is slid downward relative to the guide groove by the guide wheel, allowing the secondary support frame to be connected and driven to retract backward without manual assistance, greatly improving the action’s stability.
Impact of Decoiler Material Support Arm
The material support arm has a significant impact on the decoiling process, making it more stable and smooth. It also assists in the automatic feeding action of subsequent leveling machine platforms. Therefore, stamping owners should consider the material support arm as an optional device for decoilers. It can greatly improve the efficiency and quality of the decoiling process, making it a worthwhile investment.
In conclusion, decoilers are important equipment in the stamping industry, and the material support arm is an optional device that can significantly impact the decoiling process. Its composition, operation, and impact on the decoiling process have been discussed in this article. Stamping owners should consider the material support arm as an investment that can improve the efficiency and quality of their decoiling process.
