Vertical Strip Accumulators

Floop® Vertical Strip Accumulator

The Floop® Vertical Strip Accumulator is the most recognized strip accumulator in the world! The Floop® was developed over 50 years ago and is now on more than 1,000 coil processing lines on five continents. The Floop® eliminates all downtime associated with coil changeovers by accumulating enough strip to allow a coil joining operation to take place while the line runs from the accumulated material.

The Floop® is available for a wide range of applications. Vertical Strip Accumulators have been around for many years and are used on a wide range of applications. Kent Corporation has Floops® running on applications from .020” – .250” thick and material widths from .75” – 22” in 52 countries around the world!
