LBU SHOWING SPRING LOADED ARMS
LBU SHOWING SPRING LOADED ARMS

The line wire balancing unit incorporates separate spring loaded arms for each line wire to allow for averaging of the payoff speed during the line wire advance by the mesh welder. Only applicable to line wire diameters up to 8mm. Each wire is fed through a separate pulley system for 50mm centres, and two wires per pulley for 25mm centres.

Model Number LBU32
Wire diameter: Max. 6mm
Wire diameter: Min. 1.8mm
Linewire pitch 25mm dual or
50mm single

 

Loop accumulators


The coil feeder consists of a free standing drive unit and a separate loop accumulator. The coil feeder drives the linewires into a low resistance loop taking all of the forces of the payoff units and the linewire straighteners. This allows the mesh welding line to run with minimal drag on the linewire advance system.

The backtension roller assembly is located between the loop accumulator and the welding machine. This is a 3 roll straightening roller bank which is used to remove any permanent set in the wire from the loop accumulator and to provide a small amount of back tension between the welding machine and the loop accumulator.
