Roll Former 20

Tata Steel CEP, Newport, South Wales

the project

The Exit Handling System supplied for the 20 Stand Roll Former Process Line at Corus CEP was designed to process the various forms of rolled cold steel sections used in the Construction Highways Industry. IAC supplied a turnkey solution to transfer all product types from the roll forming line to an operator programmable stack. The system was designed to facilitate the easy addition of new products, including the ability to define stacking parameters, and the ability to handle any material up to 12m.

the solution

The control system used Parker SSD Servo Controllers and drives as the primary control system. The customer hazard analysis gave a risk category 3 and this was achieved using a Pilz Estop system coupled to safety access gates, light barriers and Estop pushbuttons. The line was controlled from an operator’s station with a 19” flat panel PC and desk mounted PC running IFix Scada software.
