Ridgway Machines, world leader in taping machinery for the energy and power industries is pleased to announce the new advanced HCP Hot Coil Compaction Press with programmable HMI process control. Coupled with advanced hydraulic, heating and cooling systems and a rugged, modular construction the HCP ensures that a uniform and precision compaction process is reliably achieved for a wide range of coil consolidation requirements and long term operational life.

The HCP incorporates a set of hydraulic rams built into hinged arm assemblies across the top length and rear face of the working envelope, with independent hydraulic circuits. Each ram can deliver 10 Tonnes of force and the number of rams can be selected to suit specific coil lengths. Typically the machine can accommodate coils up to 3800mm long, with a width between 50mm and 360mm.

Coil heating is achieved using a set of electrically heated platens at the front and rear sides of the machine, each platen is independently operated and controlled from the freestanding HMI cabinet. After pressure is applied, the platen temperature is raised to a set point and held for a period of time (soak time). The platens are then cooled by recyclable water prior to hydraulic ram release and unloading of the coils.

For coil manufacturers who wish to maximise their productivity without compromising process quality the HCP from Ridgway presents a low risk robust solution. The capability for remote diagnostics enable Ridgway to provide live, machine specific user support worldwide and performance can then be rapidly optimised for different operating conditions.
