Dallas Industries Delivers Feed Line to Kapco Metal StampingAugust 14, 2020
Kapco Metal Stamping, Grafton, WI, has taken delivery of a new Dallas Industries automated, conventional coil-feed line, rated for coils to 20,000 lb. by 30-in. wide. Included in the line is a model DRFH-530 servo feed (5-in.-dia. rolls), threading table, heavy-duty nine-roll powered straightener (model DPS-3.5-30-9-5T) with peeler/threader/coil restrictor and motorized end wheel, and 20,000-lb.-capacity coil reel with coil car
As part of the line’s automation capabilities, the Dallas SyncLoop technology provides monitoring of average line speed and loop depths, and then automatically adjusts payout speed to ensure a smooth payout. To enable quick and repeatable setups, the line includes Dallas’ AutoSet technology, which allows for automatic positioning of some or all of the adjustable points on the feed line—such as straightener rolls, edge guides, coil guides and feed passline--based on job parameters.
The line is built on an Allen-Bradley, Ethernet-based control architecture and features ProfileSelect, a unique and exclusive feed-control system that uses a cam-motion (sinusoidal) profile. This smooth profile results in a feed motion that utilizes 100 percent of the press-feed window, reducing stress on the workpiece material and on the feed’s mechanical components.
