Introducing the new CS-6200 no-touch loop control

Our popular Coiltek CS-6100 line of non-contact loop controls has finally become obsolete, but don’t fret; we have a new low cost, highly reliable, American-made no-touch loop control system to take its place.

Introducing the new CS-6200 ultrasonic loop control system from Coiltek. This exciting new product line features much of the same technology found in our industry standard CS-5000 V2 line of non-contacting loop controls, and has many of the same capabilities: Instant push-button calibration, on-board storage for up to 8 programs, and optional remote access to up to 3 preset programs, plus much more!

If you would like more information about this product line and it’s uses, such as in the plastic tubing industry, please check out our brochure. If you have further questions or would like up-to-date pricing, please contact us

“Free Loop” Controls

At Coiltek our loop controls are designed as no-touch controls for free loops. A free loop is an unfettered drop off of coil stock – slack in the line – before it enters into a process or is rewound.

The advantages of no-touch loop control systems are many, and have been discussed at some length in previous posts, but one of the major advantages is for use with non-conductive stock, such as extruded rubber or plastic medical tubing.

Our sensitive non-contacting, ultrasonic loop controls can be used on everything from wide stocks to very thin stocks. Coiltek loop controls can also be used with a variety of materials because, in addition to being very sensitive, our loop controls are adaptable.

For use with stocks that move either horizontally or vertically, we created the Hammerhead Accessory and the CS-5140 to ensure the stock is always within range. Additionally, each Coiltek loop control is essentially a custom build. We have several lines of loop controls, including a low-cost ultrasonic control, a stand-less line of loop controls, and our standard product line, the CS-5000. Each CS-5000 is fully customizable, as the customer chooses the height of the stand (either 15″, 54″, 72″, or 84″) and boom length (choose from 9 lengths between 11″ and 48″). This flexibility allows our loop controls to work with everything from tables to pits and everywhere in between. Since our no-touch ultrasonic loop controls rely on sound waves, not electrical contact or photo-technology, reflective stocks and non-metallic stocks are no problem.

Ultrasonic Control Systems

Coiltek ultrasonic loop control systems are not limited to only controlling the speed of a decoiler or straightener. In fact, any variable output device that accepts 0-10 VDC input can be controlled by our loop controls. This means that Coiltek control systems can be used to control loop height, as well as many other applications such as the level of a substance in a tank, in addition to its normal function in controlling feeding for paper processing, feeding on stamping lines, and loop control for rubber extrusion and plastic tubing manufacture.

If you have a new application that you’d like to try out with one of our units, please let us know. We have consignment terms available for customers with good credit references.

Non-Contact Loop Controls

Our Coiltek loop controls are non-contact loop controls. While most manufacturers of ultrasonic loop control systems have only one line of no-touch loop controls which use out-dated technology, we have two distinct lines of completely upgraded ultrasonic loop control systems.

The new Coiltek CS-5000 V2 and CS-6200 lines of non-contacting loop control systems are powerful and reliable. Our updated technology allows for on-board storage of preset programs, USB connected remote programming via computer, and instantaneous manual calibration.

At Coiltek we are always looking for new applications. With this in mind, we are creating a model of the low-cost, non-contacting CS-6200 line, the CS-6202, for use specifically within plastic tubing manufacturing.
