Lines > Rewind Systems
The rewind system is critical to achieving evenly wound coils with uniform
tension, and involves both the design of the individual components and the engineered line arrangement.
ALCOS offers several recoiler designs and exit rewind systems to maximize productivity and allow the slit coils to be removed without delay.
Our recoilers include both Standard Cantilever Recoiler designs, which can be provided with or without
outboard bearing supports which conveniently retract to allow access to unload the coils, and our Turret
Recoilers, which rapidly rotate to allow “off-line coil banding”
ALCOS Coil Retaining Systems can be provided to retain the slit mults during coil banding.
ALCOS hydraulically expanded multi-wedge hardened recoiler drums incorporate our integral gripper system which compensates for variations in material thickness. The drums can be provided as fixed designs with removable saddles or rapidly interchangeable quill type to accommodate various sizes of coil ID.
Exit handling systems usually include exit coil cars complete with self contained coil retainers to ensure that narrow mults remain upright during traversing and transfer turnstiles with hydraulic push off units.
