RCU-CH-EH Robotic Strap Cutting Machine
The RCU-CH-EH automates the cutting and removal of steel strap, reducing operator involvement in the processing of steel coils. Its intuitive design coupled with a multi-axial robot arm allows for processing different coil sizes and strap configurations, making it ideal for a wide range of production facilities.
Strap Cutting Process
- Strap placement identification
As the coil is rotated the robot scans to detect the end-lap, once detected rotation continues until the end-lap falls between the 5 - 7 o'clock position.
- Cutting and removal
The powerful gripper units hold the strap in place, while the cutter cuts and removes the strap from the coil.
The gripper unit places the strap into the folding and rolling unit to pack the strap into a small, easily handled bundle.
The unit places the processed strap bundles into a designated waste container on the machine.
