The rod wire overhead pay-off system is preferably installed in front of drawing machines with very high inlet speeds, i.e. draw-rolling lines with 2 – 4 reductions for mesh wire production and in all cases where only a limited floor space area is available.
Rod Wire – Overhead Pay-off System
The pay-off system works according to the principle of vertical overhead wire guidance. In case of appearance of a loop during operation, the following drawing line will be stopped automatically by an integrated loop-catcher. In order to guarantee a continuous operation of the drawing line as well as to have the possibility to load new rod coils and to weld them together, 2 hydraulically swivelling platforms with integrated carrier for take-up of the rod are installed on floor in front of the pay-off stand.
|Loading capacity per platform||Rod wire diameter range||Pay-off speed||Space requirement (LengthxDepthxHeight)|
|up to 3.000 kg||5,50-13,0 mm||up to 39 m/s||approx. 6.000 x 3.200 x 6.000 mm|
