Our client’s challenge nkt cables were building a new factory...
Meltech design and manufacture automated coiling and winding systems for extruded metal products that run at up to 150 metres per minute.
Our equipment is able to coil continuously at full production speed even during transfer of the tube or profile to another reel for coiling, while a full reel is removed. It allows extrusion machines to operate at faster speeds, maximising extrusion throughput, whilst providing accurate layering of extruded profiles.
Automated winding of extrusion profiles has particular benefits for customers handling continuous multi-rod extrusions. The ability to continuously wind multiple tubes of complex profiles delivers significant productivity benefits over manual handling.
