The task is simple: "The new coil palletizer should produce less rejects, be more flexible, work more effectively and, if possible, get faster".

Idea, construction, implementation

project A&E GmbH set itself the goal of solving this task, and of course the customer's specific improvement wishes should also be included. After numerous considerations, constructions, a lot of sweat and trials, the project-competence-team finally found the optimal solution with our PROPAL and the right gripper.

Gripper arm and palletizing

At this point, the process of strapping the coil is optimized to save time already. Also, the copper coil is already picked up still lying down. Thus, at the same time it straightens and moves the coil to the pallet - as an additional component, the 90° tilting table falls away. With this process optimization valuable time can be saved again. Furthermore, the gripper arm has a variety of safety system: Among other things, a "padded sword" protects the role from damage. In addition, the telescopic-protection secures the precious role.

Additional control

Another advantage of the PROPAL coil palletizer: The rolls are weighed before palletizing and compared with the data of the unwinding. This is an important control system for the customer from Osnabrück. The four-axis robot places the deviating rollers on a separate pallet space.

But how do you want to complete this task cost-effectively, quickly and reliably without having to hire your own staff?

Connection to existing system

The PROPAL has been integrated into the existing system by project. Existing technology was taken up and installed together with the new technology. The interfaces were revised and adapted by the project-team in order to smooth out the exchange of data with the upstream and downstream facilities.

Love challenges

"It's best to tackle challenges and later see your own ideas successfully implemented in production! And if the customer is satisfied then so are we at project ", said the designer of the project.
