ATS has a complete range of packaging lines able to satisfy any requirement for this task. ATS is able to supply bundling and stacking systems for long products rolling mills, packaging lines for cold finishing lines of bars (drawing, peeling, centerless grinding, Deformed Bars welding lines), stacking station for pipe and tube mills, coiling systems for wire rod and thin tube production.

ATS has the following main types of packaging lines:

  • Round bundling system for the service in hot rolling mills for round bars. This system can be equipped with sub-bundling forming pockets and wire ting machines, main bundling system with high speed tying, weighing and tagging, final collecting. ATS tying machines are well known on the market as the fastest machines of this type: they can perform a double turn in less than 7 sec.
  • Magnetic stacking stations for merchant bar mills. The high speed of these machines allow absorbing the high productivity of the up-stream rolling mill. Also this system can be completed by high speed tying, weighing and final storing of stacks.
  • Lance-type stacking system. This type of machine can handle either bars or tubes to form hexagonal and/or square stacks. The main characteristic of the machine is the soft handling of the final product to preserve its surface quality. The stacking unit is completed with strapping machines, wrapping systems with plastic or paper strips, final weighing and storing
  • Magnetic type stacking for heavy products. This type of staking systems are mainly use downstream of seamless pipe mills or for the stacking of heavy bars. They can form either hexagonal or square stack. The heavy and sturdy construction of all the equipment involved assures a long time operation without stops and free of maintenance.

All these lines are fully automatic and easy to set-up for a safe operation of the lines.
