Robotic Roll Changer

Actually, it's a game changer and the only way we could add more automation to our fully automated ERW mill.  The operator removes the stand locks, inputs 3-4 parameters on a touchscreen, and the Robotic Roll Changer does the rest.  It performs a complete roll change in about 30 minutes, saving you labor and reducing down time.  The mill then uses the automated Digital Roll Positioning system to precisely position the rolls for the size to be made.  Set up time and scrap are reduced by eliminating trial runs and manual adjustments necessary on conventional mills.  Another benefit is the reduced time and expense necessary to train mill operators.  When combined with FD's automated coil entry and tube bundling systems, you can reduce your manpower by as much as 50%.

The Robotic Roll Changer is an option for any of our mills up to 8.00" O.D.  If it's not time for a new mill, the Robotic Roll Changer can be retrofit onto your existing mill.  Please contact your FD representative for more information.
