Machine Concepts’ Light Duty Decoilers offer a low cost solution to a wide range of light duty coil handling/payoff applications. This series of machines is designed to handle coil loads up to 2,500 pounds per mandrel. The light weight coils are clamped on the inner diameter using a hand ratchet system to expand and collapse on varying coil inner diameters. The use of the hand ratchet expand and collapse feature eliminates the cost and space consumption of a hydraulic system.
When paired with the Machine Concepts’ EV/L2 or G2 Precision Straighteners, these decoilers can achieve superior coil handling control. The electric motor powered payoff option allows these decoilers to feed extremely thin or low yield strength materials into a straightener without damaging the material. This feature prevents tension in the strip of material created between the straightener and decoiler when the straightener pulls material off of the coil. The electric motor powered payoff sustains a loop of material between the straightener and decoiler.
