A series of new, low cost, easy to install coil loading cars from the Rotobloc-PSP division of the Dimeco Groupe is available from Shear-Form Machine Tools Ltd, Coventry, the sole UK representative for the French coil processing equipment manufacturer.
These new coil cars CCM.3 (maximum load 3,000 kgs), 4 and 5 (maximum load 4,500 kgs) have been designed for easy retrofitting to most de-coilers found in coil processing lines and require only a minimum amount of floor space. They are very economical to use as they only require an air supply line to operate the lifting carriage to load coils with a maximum diameter of 1,500 mm and maximum width of 1,500 mm. For narrow coils 4 holding pins can be supplied as an option. A small electric motor fitted to the end of the rails is used to move the carriage in and out. They do not require any hydraulic link to the decoiler
They operate on a set of 2-rails, which are designed to fit under the feet of the decoiler. The rails are bolted to the floor thereby reducing any tilting and de-railing to an absolute minimum. All models have a very low height at bottom dead centre (BDP) of 315mm and the maximum lifting height is 500mm for loading and unloading of coils.
