Coil Packing Line

Automatic Coil Packing Solution

The coil packing line is a comprehensive system that combines the coil handling machine, coil packing machine, and strapping machine to automate the process from the production line to the warehouse with PLC program systme and ERP data system.

Handling steel coils manually is challenging due to their heavy weight. To ensure safety and improve efficiency in coil packing, many factories are in search of solutions to address the issues associated with coil status.

Automatic Coil Handling

Automatic Coil 


This is the solution mainly form helping to easy handling the slitting coil with slitting line. It is for seperating the steel coil from turnstile one by one that replace the manually operation with more safety and efficiency.


The solution for making the coil handling and packing in a pipe line 

The handling solution primarily focuses on lifting the coil from the coil car and transferring it into the stacking machine, serving as an alternative to traditional cranes or fork lifters.

Stacking line


This marks the beginning of the coil packing line. The coil car moves the slit coil from the winding machine to the turnstile.

This equipment lifts the bare coil from the turnstile and down ends it onto the conveyor one by one. It includes a hydraulic station, coil lifter, and conveyor.

The Automatic Strapping Machine is engineered to carry out the ID strapping of the coil packages autonomously. Manual operations can also be performed using the control desk screen or the button panel on the machine.

This packaging approach reduces the amount of air in the package by using tight layers of packing material, which decreases the chance of moisture formation and consequently the risk of corrosion or water spots. This machine significantly reduces labor requirements in the coil packing procedure.

Handling speed: Can handle a coil every 70-120 seconds.

Max. Coil Weight: 6T

Strapping: By PET/STEEL

Packing Material: As per requirement

Control Level: Level 1-3

IoT: Yes

Compatible with: MES, ERP

Space: According to factory layout

FHOPE provides a tailored coil packing system designed for various packaging objectives and budget levels. The packing system requires only 1-2 people for all operation steps. Depending on the handling method, the packing line can be designed with coil car feeding, crane loading, or even forklift in&out.

Automatic slitting coils packing solution with prefect ROI 

The idea behind the coil packing line is to integrate the coil strapping machine and packing machinery for enhanced automation. The machine applies compact layers of packing materials across all surfaces of the coil.


Coil Packing System

Coil Packing System


The system integrates relevant management experiences, industrial practices, and information technology. It is designed to process and store production performance, quality, and material-tracking data promptly. This promotes communication across all departments and roles within the steel slitting plant, enhancing the conditions for production decision-making, and ensuring timely and accurate information transmission for decision-making.

For this project, to meet the requirement of handling same-size coil stacking on pallets, the turnstile can be programmed to inspect and rotate the arms. This prepares each arm for feeding in coils of the same size.

Through data sharing from the ERP system or via profit-bus, the coil can be automatically picked up according to width, eliminating the need for manual coil data input.

The strapping material used for coil binding is a steel belt.

Coil data can be transferred to the printing and ERP systems for online label printing and application.

Data generated from the packing line or shared from the ERP system can be printed and automatically applied to the surface of the steel coil.

In the wrapping machine, a second layer of packing material is applied as needed. This outer layer secures the ancillary package in place and further protects the inner airtight film layer. Any handling damage is limited to the outer layer, while the inner layer remains intact, thereby keeping the coil sealed and protected due to the ancillary material sandwiched between the two layers.

With centering at the stacking position, this arm-type stacking machine can pick up and shift the steel coil precisely within 0-3mm on the pallet.

The turntable gathers the coils and rotates the pallet for coil stacking based on the stacking formula setting. Each pallet station can be set to receive a specific coil size. There’s also an automatic indication for coil pallet unloading once the coil number reaches the set limit.

If you’re unsure about the functions needed in a coil packaging line, the following solution diagram can guide you to understand the typical requirements of a slitting center. Alongside strapping and wrapping, there are stations for weighing, labeling, coil centering, and automatic timber feeding…


Cold Roll Steel Coil Packaging Line

Cold Roll Steel Coil
Packaging Line


This is the coil buffering area designed to receive the coil and manage packaging time, coil handling, or troubleshoot machine issues…

This orbital wrapper uses shuttles that carry packing material for through-eye wrapping. It can handle Cold roll coils with a Max. OD of 2500mm, Width of 2200mm, Weight of 35T. Packing materials: VCI film, Paper, HDPE…

Two primary packing materials covering the steel coil OD are corrugated paper, plastic sheet, or steel sheet. After feeding the material, it will be cut to fit the coil OD. The packing material head & tail are connected by glue or tape.

This is one of the most challenging packing processes to automate. For the automatic solution, it usually requires a robot. Most companies opt for manual corner protector insertion.

This machine straps the steel coil at its OD with a steel belt or PET, according to the number setting.

This machine straps the steel coil through its ID with a steel belt or PET, according to the number setting.

The equipment varies based on the packaging goal and the function of the packing line.

Control system should enable in a reliable way:
➢ Process control
➢ Processing of measurement data
➢ Visualization of statuses and processes
➢ Data archiving
➢ Recording of any selected input signals or secondary signals generated in the system
➢ Diagnostics: alarms, warnings, operator events, breakdowns of industrial network, malfunction
of servers and operator stations

Preferred standard for PLCs in AMP are Siemens S7-1500 PLCs (process line PLCs) and S7-1200
(in case of package installations). Selection of PLC series is done after agreement with AIM. For
scattered stations Siemens ET 200MP HF or ET 200SP HF is a standard solution.

It is recommended to use modules offering Shared Device functionality. Use of any other scattered
stations only upon agreement with AIM. Supplier should ensure unification i.e. use one type of
CPU, CP, PS for each series. Version of utility software, Simatic Manager or TIA Portal, should be
agreed with AMP. Allowable size of work memory utilization in PLC is 60%. Maximum time of
OB1 cycle is 150ms.

All PLCs should be in one multi-project, if possible, together with HMI projects. In case of Simatic
Manager (PLC) or TIA Portal (HMI) software, Device Proxy functionality should be used.

Programs in PLCs should be written according to strictly defined rules and criteria, and use
common library. Requirements and rules should be agreed on during initial design phase with
AIM employees.

All PLCs should be available from engineer station, including configurable network devices,
measuring and operating elements if it is possible to connect them to network and manage
them using PC/WWW application.

Contractor will supply source codes and documentation of all libraries used. It means that there
should be no element of the system for which the source codes are not provided, excluding
standard Siemens library blocks. Source codes should be written in a clear way with comments
in English and/or in Polish. Expectations to this requirement should be discussed during

PLCs should have automatic backup of modified parameters (e.g. process settings, regulators,
alarm thresholds, etc.) so that CPU starts-up with current parameters after restart or reset.
System should enable its easy expansion by adding new modules or stations, devices.
