Resolution

It is worthwhile to set for your operators the goal of keeping the uncoiling and straightening equipment continually running. Any recycling is more energy consuming than continually running. Too frequent recycling can be damaging to equipment. Most variable speed units with loop controls can be adjusted to approximate continual running. In many cases this simply means slowing them down without any detraction from production.
