A coil upender to make 90 degree steel coil turnging

In an choice embodiment, the coil upender includes a managing robot made and situated to grab (i.e. directly from the shuttle) solitary rolls positioned using the axis thereof roughly horizontal and turn those to drive them to your position using the axis thereof approximately top to bottom.

According to the invention are indicated hereunder with reference to some non-limiting embodiments and in the appended claims further advantageous embodiments and possible additional characteristics of the coil upender.

The invention also relates to a robot for handling rolls of web material, particularly although not exclusively for use in a coil upender of the above type, comprising an articulated arm, movable according to a plurality of numerically controlled axes and supporting a suction head, according to a specific aspect. The suction head has a surface for gripping the rolls substantially flat in shape and approximately semi-circular, according to a possible embodiment. Advantageously, the suction power mind could have suction power locations that may be activated selectively as a purpose of the size of the roll to get handled.

The suction areas are formed of substantially semi-annular portions, in fluid connection with a suction duct, according to a preferred embodiment of the invention. Also provided are choice people to selectively link mentioned considerably semi-annular amounts for the suction duct. The assortment members are able to comprise a control device.

In a more embodiment, your head of your robot will have a plurality of self-shutting valves, linked to a suction duct and positioned together with the suction power part for the gripping surface of the suction power mind in the robot. The personal-shutting down valves may be designed with individual shut-away from participants which close up the control device if you find no area of a roll to get engaged via explained mind in front of it.

In the specifically recommended embodiment of the technology, a detector to trigger suction power when the head is within proximity to some roll is associated to stated go.
