A. Adjustable slitter | B. Cutter | C. Splicer | D. Slitter System | E. Apply rubber to edges | F. Wind-up steel cord | G. Liner let-off

  • Optional with tension control
  • Integrated loadcell
  • Single sided sensor for easy liner handling
  • Compact guider
  • Integrated to existing network

High Power and High resolution camera OL 91 is used to detect actual angle of steel belt after cutting. Geometry of steel belt is measured accurately regardless color of conveyor.To measure angle of belt after cutting

  • Measurement on conveyor
  • Supported by web based Management
  • Data transferred to PLC
  • Light adaptvity as per conveyor belt condition

Detection of missing rubber on top or bottom. An array of CCD cameras OL 91 is mounted on the front and back side of the calendered steel cord. High intensity LED lights provide the illumination. The cameras evaluate the surfaces continuously and save defect data in a database for quality control.

  • Defect signal communicated to PLC
  • Complete image processing within cameras

Rubberized steel cord coms from the Unwind on to a conveyor. E+L VG14 guider guides the rubberized steel cord to a desired position. This is done by a CCD line scan camera and a combination of the digital position controller and actuator. System is capable of giving feedback to unwind in case of VG14 runs out of the stroke. Steel belt after splicing is guided into the slitter at desired position via camel back guide . Liner is guided into the winder at let-off station by SR41 or set of guiding components consisting for edge sensor, actuator and controller

The ELQVS software is used to record material widths, measured with various E+L sensing systems, in relation to material length. The system can document up to six independent measuring points. The widths are recorded cyclically every 20 ms in a database and displayed on a customized HMI.

Winding station system WSB91 / WSB93

Control components for winding stations with wear-free, brushless digital drive technology for highest control accuracy and control dynamics Can be combined with infrared edge sensor FR 53 or infrared wide band sensor FE 46 or CCD camera OL 82
