Let's discover with OMG, a company specialized for over 50 years in the production of special machines,the handling of reels and coils sector.

Coils represent one of the most common handling requests but they do not find a solution in the standard product. They actually require customized applications, studied ad hoc in relation to the real needs of the end user.OMG knows this very well and has been making special equipment for this niche market for several years, answering promptly and effectively to the various needs of the customer.

There are several factors that affect the study and implementation of these models of equipment. Among these we can certainly mention the different types of reels and the variability related to the required movement.

320KN portabobineLet’s start from this last aspect. The types of movement can essentially be traced back to the necessity of a simple transport, to the need of placing the object at a certain height or handling the reel itself. If, on the one hand, for the simple transport, it will be enough to choose an equipment that does not damage the coil during handling, on the other hand is the case in which a vertical displacement of the object or a manipulation of it is required. In these situations, particular attention must be paid to ensuring, on the one hand the stability and the non-deformability of the mast of the truck, in relation to the weight of the loads, on the other the capacity of the equipment itself to adapt to the work environment and type of intended use, as for the case of lateral movements of the load.

It is therefore immediately evident that the choice of a manufacturer that not only realizes but also immediately understands what the customer wants to do with the equipment is an essential aspect for this type of sector.

A simple displacement, for example, requires a totally different truck compared to another that has to place the coil inside a machine. Not to mention the environmental elements that affect transport. Narrow spaces, for example, which could lead to having to move the reel not stretched but vertically.

And it is precisely the characteristics of the reel that are the main discriminating factor in the selection and manufacture of the equipment: different materials ranging from steel to paper, up to fabrics, with very varied dimensions and/or weight, require a very accurate design phase. The very nature of the load will often lead to having to go for unconventional handling solutions. A 775BLK portabobinecoil, for example, of very delicate material, cannot be manipulated on the sides because of its natural deformation. It will have, instead, to be moved through spurs or booms, single-sided cylindrical tools that will allow the load to be moved through its central hole.

It is therefore easy to understand how only a perfect knowledge of the type of coil and the application that the customer intends to make of the machine can lead the project, both from a technical and economic point of view, in the right direction. In this OMG has proven over time to be an ideal partner, providing the end user a wide range of equipment, customized every time on request. We start, for simple movements, from low lift trucks models equipped with a cradle, prismatic forks or folding sides, depending on the need to handle rolls with a variable diameter range. If, on the other hand, there is the need to lift the load and manipulate it, OMG designs stackers equipped with specific attachments, such as pliers or spurs that guarantee the possibility of gripping the load, from the ground, from pallets or from machinery, also allowing a rotation of the same from horizontal to vertical position. All solutions that can be adapted to coils of each material and size, answering to different handling needs.
