During production process of steel coil, loops of steel strip continuous unit have many forms. Here we briefly introduce the features of these loops.
1.Horizontal-type loop: Generally, it is set above the equipment or below terrace, featuring small floor space, large storage volume and simple structure.
2.Vertical-type loop: It is the most suitable for storage unit of thin steel strip. It enjoys large capacity despite of small space area. CAMELSTEEL uses vertical-type loop during production of color coated steel sheet. It can be easily used to control steel strip operation and the tension of steel strip.
3.Loop pit: It is a storage way of steel strip which is used for continuous unit since early time. The disadvantage is that it is easy to cause friction between the buckling of loop bend and steel strip surfaces, which will impact the surface quality of steel strip.
4.Spiral loop: It is only suitable for continuous unit with narrow width and low speed. Friction among steel strips can greatly impact the quality of products.
