Roll Forming Section
The uncoiling unit is placed at the beginning of the production line. Its main function is to hold and drive the steel coil that is being fed into the roll forming machine. Thanks to an automatic connecting system it is possible to connect two coils without stopping the line. The roll forming station consists of both upper and lower forming group. Its main function is to form the sandwich panels sheet surfaces. Individually controlled top and bottom steel pre-heaters heat the steel to the correct temperature prior to the application of the polyurethane. The configuration of the roll forming is specifically designed according to the end-product characteristics.
Foaming And Double Belt Section
This section is a key stage in the production process. Ekosystem’s multicomponent dosing unit is at the heart of the production line for sandwich panels with polyurethane core. Our double belt design is the result of years of manufacturing experience and feedback from operating units. Ekosystem can supply modular double belt conveyors with different lengths according to specific production needs.
After leaving the double belt conveyor, the sandwich panel proceeds towards the cutting section, where finished panels are cut to the desired length. The cutting machine is composed of an automatic panel cutting system with band saw, laminator out-feed conveyor and cross cut with band saw.
Before stacking, the panels enter the so-called ‘cooling area’ through a conveyor. The conveyor is planned to receive the cut panels coming from the cross cutting machine and, by means of lateral translation belts, to push them into the cooling system. The cooling conveyor is made by a set of vertical forks in order to hold the panels in vertical cooling position. The cooling phase determines the final quality of the panel as it allows heat dissipation and prevents any deformation on the surface of the panel. The stacking unit is designed to stack the finished panels exiting from the cutting section or the cooling conveyor. The stacked panels are then wrapped thanks to the packing unit placed at the end of the line.
