Automatic single head coiler consisting of one automatic adjustable reel, including pipe length measuring system, cutting, dedicate pipe size tools, automatic Stretch Wrapping and off-loading of the finished coils. Designed to obtain perfect coiling of PE Gas and PEX pipes; this coiler can work either in-line as well as within re-coiling lines. The coils optimal sizes, are achieved, thanks to the adjustments available, repeatable and storable into a number of recipes.
The reel ID is automatic adjustable through a centralized mechanism programmable from the main panel, while the width is mechanic adjusted by the operator. Through the pipe guide integrated system, the pipe is distributed regularly by means of two driven axes. The on-board cutting device, with dedicated cutting blocks, allow the perfect pipe cut to length. One shaped pipe end paddle is adjustable on three direction, to match the position of the pipe end after cutting. One stretch wrapping station applies the stretch film in the middle of the coil for the number of programmed turns. The stretch wrap station can be programmed to traverse toward both reel edges for a better coil protection. The stretch film is tensioned to be tight on both edges. The coil is ejected from the coiler front side onto a conveyor to achieve its final position outside of the machine safety guards.
The software developed by FB Balzanelli, based on two main PLC and components Allen-Bradley brands allow the operator to control the machine through the interactive panel.
