The twin channel offers solution to bar handling at cooling bed at high speeds. Twin channels are available for bar sizes up to 40mm in India and stock speeds as high as 30meters per second. This carries the bar in a closed channel until the material comes to a standstill position and discharges it to the bed below automatically.
This is an excellent system as it carries the bar in a closed channel, minimizing the accident hazards. Specifically while carrying out high speed rolling the system is an absolute necessity.
Its design features makes it possible to work in conjunction with braking pinch rolls, minimizing the length of run-in. The operations of twin channel are automated and are guided by the discharge of the rods from dividing shear. An innovative idea for cast iron center boxes has drastically brought down maintenance time.
