Metzner Production Line

for fully automaticprocessesing of
wound steel ropes, steel cables and wire ropes

Metzner has developed a production line for the fully automatic processesing of wound steel ropes with outstanding cutting quality and length accuracy. In addition to the cutting process, the equipment also marks all the rope positions that will be required for later processing.

The steel rope is fed in using a motorised feeder connected to a loop control system. The speed of the feeding process is controlled by the position signals of the loop control system. Thus, the material is fed in a way that it is protected without the machine coming into contact with the floor.

In order to avoid drilling on the cut rope ends, the production equipment fastens marking bands to the section points that will be cut at a later time. In this process, all the marking bands are programme-controlled to be glued to the steel rope - with a cycle time of less than 2 seconds. In addition, a wax printer marks all the fastening and processing points that will be required for subsequent processing. This marking method is carried out in the throughput. This is followed by the cutting process. Precise length accuracy is ensured here by a special laser measurement system.

For the orderly storage of the steel rope, Metzer has integrated a material stacker with a storage space of up to 12 metres. All cut steel rope can be stored and sorted according to length so that it can be removed at a later point.
