to Capitol Technologies

Features include 4-in.-dia. crodon-surfaced feed rolls and a pull-through straightener. Sealed-for-life double-row ball bearings mean that the feed has only one grease point. Dual pneumatic cylinders provide roll lift and pilot release. The feed is mounted on an adjustable-height cabinet with a four-roll curve section, a remote jog pendant and adjustable edge guides. Controls include a PLC-based drive package and allow feed-length adjustment on the fly. For more, visit
