Coil processing: insights and techniques

Produtech has been able to answer the market’s needs, thanks to the intuition that coil processing, compared to the traditional sheet metal processing, has more incredible advantages. Let’s take a look here at all the pros of coil processing.

Coil processing has a long list of advantages that make this kind of supply much more convenient than the traditional sheet metal processing, specifically from two main standpoints: higher saving of raw material and higher production speed.


Coil processing: less raw material used

Coil processing machines allow to cut on raw material, optimizing its use: thanks to the nesting of the figures on coils without a length limit, we can produce a higher number of pieces than if we were working with previously cut metal sheets, reducing waste by 20-30%. Less waste and more pieces produced: with the same surface area, the coil nesting allows to make better use of the raw material available.

This implies two great advantages:

  • The first is to be intended in terms of time saved, considering that you don’t need any extra time to cut the metal coil into sheets;
  • The second one is in regard to how much money is saved, considering that coils have a lower cost than metal sheets.

Therefore, coil processing allows to reduce waste material and purchase costs, while increasing productivity in terms of number of pieces produced.

Coil processing: higher production speed

Thanks to the automatic feeding system, coil processing allows to highly increase production speed. Coil processing doesn’t require constant loading and unloading operations of metal sheets into the machine, which causes a great cut in regards to the time needed to load and unload raw material.

Produtech’s coil processing lines work automatically on the entire productive cycle, from raw material to the finished piece, without the constant supervision of an operator or the need to manually reposition of the pieces from a machine to another.

This implies a higher level of automation and performance of the productive processes, with less need for for either economic or manpower resources in order to carry on with production.

Besides being extremely more effective, coil processing is also more sustainable than the traditional sheet metal processing, because it allows to use less raw material and it requires to change wearable pieces with a lower frequency, thanks to direct-drive engines.

Also, coil processing implies a reduction in terms of hazardous emissions: Produtech’s coil processing lines do not emit CO2 and operate in almost complete absence of fumes generated by liquid lubricants.


Coil processing by Produtech

Produtech, thanks to its knowledge and exclusive technological know-how, was able to perceive the great potential of coil processing, which is exactly way it chose to make this kind of processing the number one peculiarity of its machines.

All of Produtech’s machines are manufactured with the specific trait of processing coil, and not metal sheets. A characteristic that makes them unique and very competitive on the market.

Specifically, Produtech manufactures:

Each one of these machines can be completely personalized, according to the client’s specific production needs, and it’s perfectly equipped to allow the automatic production of pieces through coil processing.
