COE Press Equipment recently shipped and installed a 6” coil processing line to Nucor’s facility in Frankfort, Kentucky, which manufactures building envelope systems designed to protect roofs, exterior walls, foundations and fenestration systems. The new line, which consists of COE’s 6” Series 1 Servo Roll Feed, a Series 250 (2.5” x 6”) Power Straightener and a 4,000# X 12” capacity Coil Reel, feeds a newly installed SEYI press.
The Nucor line is designed to handle galvanized steel at 40,000 PSI up to 0.051” – 0.125” thick in coil widths from 2”-6”. It can achieve a roll speed of 392 feet/minute with a feed accuracy of +/- 0.003”.
The line features COE’s ServoMaster Touch™ Controller including Feed Advisor and Work Roll Advisor, which eliminate guesswork during job setup by calculating feeder speed and acceleration, and straightener work roll settings for the user, significantly reducing setup time. Additionally, a Micro-Adjust feature automatically compensates on-the-fly for short/long parts, adjusting to the ideal index length for a job.
