Turnstile for coils and slit coils

For the processing of coils and slit coils, as well as for storage or as a buffer space, our turnstile is used. The turnstile is foreseen at coil processing lines, such as slitting lines, cut-to-length lines, coil feeding lines or rollforming lines.

We build turnstiles with 2, 3 or 4 support arms to hold the coils in hanging position.

Each support arm is screwed to the upper housing which is mounted on roller bearings. The positioning of the selected support arm follows through the motorized swiveling motion of the upper part until the selected angle position has reached. Subsequent automated locking of the upper housing follows and thus all support arms cannot move to secure the angle position. The entire swivel range amounts 360 degrees.

Depending on the maximum coil weight and coil width, the support arms can be designed in a completely "open" shape, i.e. the support arms are open at the top and bottom in order to combine the coil loading with the customer's C-hook, coil transporter or coil lifting car.

We can manufacture the turnstile as a fully self-sufficient system with its own control. The operator pre-selects the loading or unloading position of the requested support arm and the turnstile rotates automatically as soon as the current loading or unloading process has finished.

The associated safety and protection devices complete the turnstile area.
