Smart coiler for corrugated pipes

The F1 0800C automatic single head coiler by FB Balzanelli for easily adjustable pipe reels consists of a pipe length measuring system, cutting system, dedicate pipe size tools, automatic stretch wrapping and off-loading of the finished coils. Designed to obtain perfect coiling of PVC, PP and PE corrugated pipes and corrugated prewired pipes. The coils optimal sizes, are achieved, thanks to the adjustments available, repeatable and storable into a number of recipes.


The reel diameter can be easily adjusted on each arm by a worm screw, while the width is mechanically adjusted by the operator. Through the pipe guide integrated system, the pipe is distributed regularly by means of two driven axes while the on-board cutting device allows perfect cut to length. The stretch wrapping station applies the stretch film in the middle of the coil for a set number of turns and can be programmed to traverse toward both reel edges between which the film is tensioned for better coil protection. The finished coil is ejected from the coiler front side onto a conveyor in its final position outside the machine safety guards.


The machine software, developed by FB Balzanelli based on two main PLC and components brands, allows the operator to control the machine through the interactive panel.
