Slack Loops

With coil processing equipment, feeders can generally respond much more quickly than most uncoilers, also known as coil reels. In some cases, the uncoiler is additionally required to straighten. For an uncoiler to respond as quickly as a feeder does would require a much larger drive as well as the ability to position. This is why most systems have a slack loop.
