SPACE SAVER FEED LINES

The Finest Coil Processing Equipment & Technology since 1965

COLT Space Saver Feed Lines (CSSU)

COLT’s Space Saver Coil Feed Lines offer the same performance using less space. Light gauge or heavy gauge. 

COLT Automation is a pioneer in space saver coil feed line design, offering a variety of different styles for heavier gauge, light gauge, mild steel, or AHSS. The introduction of the powered Torque Drive Uncoiler (2012) allows fully synchronized fixability to feed directly into the Feeder/Straightener of the back loop.

COLT AUTOMATION SPACE SAVER FEED LINES:
• Use up to 33% less the space

• One operator can thread a new 30,000 lb coil in under 4 minutes

• Hydraulically operated cradle side plates provide ease of
set-up and coil centering

• A closed loop servo system offers precise feed lengths, less
downtime and more productivity
