Automation Roll Handling

In the area of automation roll handling, Davis-Standard designs and builds pivot shaft systems, removable shaft systems, shaft pullers, and lift tables including the full integration of controls. Controls integration is also available for equipment supplied by a third party such as wrapping, conveying, and storage systems. Pivot shaft systems can be supplied with select machines. Both pivot shaft and removable shaft systems are available in fully-automatic or semi-automatic arrangements. Custom engineering is offered for new equipment as well as field retrofits.

Highlights of a typical pivot shaft system

  • 45-second cycle times depending on application.
  • An unloading range of 30 to 90 degrees depending on facility space requirements.
  • Semi or automatic core loading with precision core positioning and core cutting options.
  • Doffing conveyors to automatically position the unloading roll diameter for a smooth transition, eliminating the possibility of shaft damage.

Highlights of typical removable shaft systems

  • Traversing lift table and pivot arm unloading systems for 80-second and greater than 80-second cycle times.
  • Semi or automatic core loading with precision core positioning and core cutting options.
  • Variable frequency driven mill duty shaft puller for smooth precision operation.
  • Lift tables with multiple options for different applications such as conveyor unloading, tilt tops, precision positioning for side-lay and offset wind applications.
