Heavy Roll-Formed Section

This system is capable of collating, stacking and strapping sections at 40M/min. As opposed to a manual gang, of 7, who can only do so at 20M/min with the attendant H&S problems. It handles some 28 different sections from 400mm long to 20M.

It is also capable of filling stillages either by placing the sections in layers or simply dumping them into the stillage.

Section profile checking is feasible with a vision system at one end of each section. If a faulty section is detected it can be run out and avoid being stacked as could any new section that was not suitable for the system.

Technician selection is made from a menu on the HMI to determine matrices and types of product orientation.
