Ulbrich Installs Braner Coil Packaging System

By on
Braner/Loopco has installed a complete Coil Packaging System dedicated to efficiently packaging thin gauge slit coils produced from a 24-inch Turret Head Slitting Line at Ulbrich Stainless in Alsip, Ill. The compact pack line occupies a footprint of just 26 by 41 feet.

The line features a four-arm horn at the end of the pack line, a programmable "operatorless" downender that automatically picks coils off the horn arm and places coils onto a conveyor. That automatically transports coils to a strapper, where individual coils are weighed and plastic or steel radial strapping is applied.
