    Thorite controls keep Bridon's wire coiling

    Monday 18th March 2013

    Thorite, has recently supplied 20 in-house designed single station control panels, plus a range of pneumatic cylinders, actuators and air preparation equipment, for a new 20 station line of Vertical Take-up Units (VTU's) at Bridon's Wire Mill & Ropery in Doncaster.

    Each Thorite panel controls pneumatic actuators which activate nip rollers and accumulator arms feeding wire from Bridon's galvanising plant on to a wire coiler. This unique system provides an advanced, remotely controlled electro/pneumatic interface, enabling the VTU operators to transfer fully coiled reels from the production line to an accumulating reel, remove the old reel and install an empty reel as part of a continuous process.
