A new coil strapping system, introduced by Conair for its ATC Series tube coilers, automatically and securely straps finished coils of small-diameter extruded tubing. Handling coils up to 24 in (61 cm) in diameter, the system prevents tube damage or unraveling and making the coils far easier to grasp, handle and move. It uses roll-fed PP and PET strapping and is FDA compliant for medical-tube applications.
The strapping system is available as a factory option for new ATC coilers or as a retrofit for existing units. Conair introduced the dual-spindle automatic cut-and-transfer ATC Series coiler in 2013 to provide tensionless, high-speed winding of small-diameter flexible tubing in sizes from 0.040 inch (1 mm) to 0.5 inch (12.7 mm) on coils up to 24 inches (61 cm) in diameter. The coiler fully automates the transfer of tube winding when a coil is full, eliminating the need for operator involvement or process disruption.
Additional ATC Coiler features, including automatic unloading, conveying, and wrapping of strapped coils, are planned by Conair for future release.
