Versa Machinery introduced its motorized de-reeler / dancer that minimizes stretching of elastic materials allowing greater cut length accuracy when measured by a cutter/puller assembly.
A low mass dancer arm controls the system to automatically synchronize its speed with that of the cutter/pPuller. The motorized de-reeler / dancer minimizes surge and slippage and works well with tacky products that tend to stick to themselves when tightly coiled.
The system holds spools or coiled products without spools and adjusts easily for various sizes of loose coils. Adjustable stainless-steel supports are provided to secure the inside of open coils.
Easily cleaned acrylic top and bottom plates contact coiled products. A pinch roll pre-puller extracts material from the spool or coil. The device operates at speeds up to 125 FPM (38 MPM).
For materials up to ¼” (6.35 mm) outside diameter the spools or coils of extruded products are held in a stationary position. An arm sweeps around the perimeter of the coil to pull and guide material.
For materials over ¼” outside diameter a second configuration is available that holds the spool or coil on a horizontal shaft allowing the material to rotate when it is pulled. An electric brake is provided to stop rotation when the system slows or stops. Change-over takes just a few minutes materials in both size ranges are processed.
The control panel includes start, stop and emergency stop pushbuttons. The system will automatically stop in the event of a material jam.
