Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0743108A1] A method and apparatus for transferring rod sections (1) from a flying shear (3) to a cooling bed (60), via a run-in table (6) wherein electromagnetic coils (11) are placed in hollow rollers (5) at a downstream end of the run-in table to pull the leading ends of the rods onto the rollers and prevent bouncing of the rods whereafter braking force is applied to the trailing end of the rods before the rods are lifted by a lifting apron (20) for transfer to the cooling bed. The rollers containing the electromagnetic coils are hollow and detachable to gain access to the interior of the rollers and the electromagnetic coils therein. <IMAGE>
