Eurodraw is a leading name in the drawing world. As a specialist in the production of lines and plants for a variety of applications within the wire industry, the historic Italian company has supplied over time world-renowned names such as Michelin, Goodyear, Bridgestone, and Pirelli with excellent equipment.Why so successful? Simple — Eurodraw rhymes with innovation and reliability.As proof of this, the company has recently launched a ground-breaking drawing line that allows to monitor over 40 parameters throughout the entire process.In detail, the line features:- one motorized payoff unit for spools up to ø400 mm. Maximum speed: 25 m/s. Unwinding tension configurable through the motor;- one dancer arm with meter counter and pneumatic cylinder for unwinding tension adjustment;- one instrumented soapbox and die holder;- one pulling capstan with double water cooling circuit and double motor with differential gearbox;- one dancer arm with meter counter and pneumatic cylinder for take-up tension adjustment;- one spooler for ø400 mm spools. Maximum speed: 25 m/s.The many sensors along the entire line allow comprehensive information to be displayed on the HMI (Human-Machine Interface). Moreover, data can be sent to a PC for a more in-depth analysis.Let's take a closer look at each component:Motorized payoff unit:- current and torque measurement;- wire tension measurement;- speed measurement.Dancer arm – payoff:- air pressure measurement and calculation of the force applied on the dancer arm;- meter counter;- laser pre-drawing wire diameter measurement.Soap box:- lubricating oil heating system. Max. temperature: 300 °C;- dry lubricant heating system with soap stirrer;- adjustment rollers to fine-tune the wire feeding position;- 3 temperature sensors in three different positions of the soap box;- oil pump and recirculation tank;- possibility to use lubricating grease;- vertical and horizontal position electrical adjustment with linear encoder;- internal pulley to adjust the wire-die alignment;- thermal insulation.Die holder:- tangential and orthogonal load gauge for drawing force measurement;- temperature sensor;- water cooling system with tank and hydraulic pump;- micrometric screws for position tweaking;- post-drawing wire temperature infrared sensor;- anti-vibration roller with outgoing wire pressure gauge.Pulling capstan:- two motors to apply the maximum possible drawing torque at any speed;- double hot or cold water cooling circuit;- water temperature sensors;- infrared camera to measure temperature changes over the capstan’s surface;- pneumatic press roller;- motor torque data acquisition;- current and speed display.Dancer arm – spooler:- air pressure measurement and calculation of the force applied on the dancer arm;- meter counter;- final wire diameter laser measurement;- calculation of wire elongation by diameter measurement.Spooler:- wire tension, current, torque and speed measurement;- traverse system torque measurement;- traversing speed adjustment.This innovative Eurodraw machine can also be used as a rewinding line by bypassing all the equipment between the payoff and the spooler.Don't hesitate: get in touch with the company through the details on the left for more information.
