Turnstile

A turnstile is very beneficial in keeping a coil processing line moving.

It stores up to four coils so a crane does not need to be used each time a coil is processed.

A round machine usually with 4 arms forming an X, the turnstile works as a staging area or storage buffer for the coil car to drop off and pick up coils.

Turnstiles are particularly efficient for partial coils, noting that coil staging rack systems are usually a better choice for full coils.

Turnstiles are available in a classic 1, 2, 3, 4 arm configuration.

However the recommendation is a 3 or 4 arm configuration for maximum efficiency and decreased downtime.

These can be both automatically or manually operated however the manually operated turnstiles have a maximum of 20,000 lbs capacity.

When possible a turnstile arm should feature a 'C' hook slot so that coils over 18 in can be removed before being downended.

This insures that the product does not become damaged and a smoother packaging line is developed ready for any challenge
