Motorized rolls are surely one of the most innovative transfer solutions for hot dip galvanizing plants. Gimeco is able to design solutions that would include motorized rolls for the efficient transfer of spin galvanizing baskets. Such a design, when combined with robotized arms on the furnace, dramatically shortens up process cycle times, saving energy and money. The same combined system is also a great way to reduce the need of several spin baskets, since cycle time is quick enough to allow massive and rapid reuse. One of the most interesting uses of motorized rolls in Gimeco’s signature plants is their integration in general hot dip galvanizing buffer systems. In these buffers, rolls are controlled by accurate encoders and actuators, positioning each specific rack in a known position. Each rack is therefore constantly tracked and identified, so that automatic process technology can apply the chosen process recipe according to product features.
Integrated internal logistics allow Gimeco to offer its Customers a new perspective on their operation: low operational costs and high production efficiency with total environmental protection and workers safety.Motorized rolls
