Heavy Duty Center Driven Payoff

Heavy Duty Center Driven Payoff


Progressive-Ruesch Machine Company's Model 247 is a flexible unwinding system designed for the smooth payoff of pre-slit master coils or any number of similar pancake coils (mults). Typically the Model 247 is mounted on linear ways to facilitate side to side motion either for the purpose of tracking to maintain coil orientation or to step position when paying off mults.

This versatile uncoiler is available with several drum options to accommodate a variety of package configurations. Options include a variety of coated drum surfaces, filler plates for multiple coil I.D.s, and side support flanges.

The uncoiler is available various drive options which are determined by customer requirements and can be used at speed ...
Scrap Winder

Scrap Winder


Progressive-Ruesch Machine Company introduces the Model 254 Traverse Scrap Winding Machine for metal strip. This model is capable of matching line speed to 1000 FPM (as determined by the prime mover) on a 16" ID and will facilitate scrap bundles up to 36" in diameter with a maximum face width of 12", Maximum package weight is 500 pounds. This model incorporates a removable flange with a tapered hairpin drum to facilitate bundle removal to either a customer supplied pallet or container.

The Model 254 is also available with an optional hydraulically operated tailstock that can be initiated by an operator when the drum is full. When the slide and flange retract, the scrap bundle simply falls off the tapered hairpin drum and rolls down ...
Linear Over Arm Separator

Linear Over Arm Separator


Progressive-Ruesch Machine Company introduces the Model 260 Linear Elevating Over Arm Separator to maintain consistent position between strip and over arm tooling throughout the coil build-up. The Model 260e was specifically designed for use in core slip winding and in particular with our Sliptech core slip rewinding system (U.S. Patent #5,292,084).

The Model 260 is a separately floor mounted, free standing unit that incorporates a sonic coil diameter sensing device. This sensor actuates the hydraulic directional control valve thus elevating the strip pass line and separator roll tooling to maintain guiding geometry as the O.D. of the coil increases.

This eliminates tension that would otherwise be created by strip surface ...
S-Wrap Pull Bridle

S-Wrap Pull Bridle


The Progressive-Ruesch Model 267 Pull Bridle is used to isolate tension between a slitter, edging station or upstream process and individual winders or downstream equipment. The bridle includes two rollers that, while working in tandem, produce consistent pull against the slitter upstream and yet provide sufficient hold back to allow for the control of winding tension downstream. The result is the effective isolation of separate tension zones within a line.

A Load cell indicates tension levels between the slitter and bridle thus allowing for speed regulation. Tension downstream is typically controlled via torque or dancer control on the winder or other secondary equipment.

Each 18” bridle roll will have an air operated ...
Elevating Tension Stand

Elevating Tension Stand

(2)
Progressive-Ruesch Machine Company ’s elevating tension stands are separately floor-mounted units designed to guide and uniformly tension each slit strip while rewinding. Tension is introduced either by way of pinch roll in the case of the 295 or through a covered wiper type arrangement on the 296 style.

The 295 style offers pinch rolls that can be pressure adjusted to control tension and can be provided with a variety of coverings to configure the machine for particular product needs.

The 296 utilizes an air bladder type pressure pad to reduce the possibility of marking the material as opposed to the rigid beam manually or air cylinder actuated tension stands. The amount of air pressure required for the desired strip ...
Core Cutter

Core Cutter


Progressive Ruesch Machine Co., Inc., introduces the Model 307Cost Cutter, Core Cutter for the repeatable production of consistent, high quality cores. The 307 produces accurately cut, straight, parallel cores with dimensions held to thousandths of an inch and free from fray. The Core Cutter produces better cores which, in turn produce better coils.

The Model 307 utilizes a simple thumb wheel adjustment for setting core size and a microprocessor for storing parameters and actuating the system. The simple, easily accessible design provides durability with limited maintenance. Blade changes are easily accomplished in seconds rather than minutes.

Safety, which is often an issue of concern with core cutters is prominently ...

Strip-Turn-Ender

Strip-Turn-Ender


This unique, low cost coil handling aid is a simply hung manipulator that allows an operator to remove heavy coils, reposition, and off load with minimal effort. Consequently, downtime is minimized, safety is maintained and operator satisfaction is increased.

The simple 4-Step unload process is as follows:
1. Secure coil with hand tightening knobs to the Strip-Turn-Ender from turnstile or winder.
2. Effortlessly down-end the coil from a vertical to horizontal position.
3. Use your overhead crane to position the Strip-Turn-Ender for unloading.
4. Down-Ending complete! Unfasten the coil from the Strip-Turn-Ender.
