La-Z-Boy Takes Delivery of Feed Lines from Dallas IndustriesFebruary 1, 2018
Dallas Industries, Troy, MI, a manufacturer of coil-handling, press-feeding equipment and controls for the stamping industry, has announced that the La-Z-Boy facility in Neosho, MO, has taken delivery on two feed lines. One line is a 36-in.-wide conventional line featuring a model DRF-536 cabinet mounted servo-feed, threading table, model DPS-3.5-36-7 powered straightener and a 20,000-lb.-load-capacity reel with load car. The second line is an 18-in.-wide conventional feed line featuring La-Z-Boy’s existing model DRF-418 cabinet-mounted servo feed (with a new controls retrofit), threading table, model DPS-3-18-7 powered straightener and a 6000-lb.-load-capacity reel.
Both lines were built on an Allen-Bradley, Ethernet-based control architecture and feature SyncLoop and ProfileSelect. SyncLoop controls synchronize the feeder and straightener speeds to enhance the slack loop’s stability and control. ProfileSelect is a unique feed-control system and a Dallas Industries exclusive. It uses a cam-motion (sinusoidal) profile for a feed motion that utilizes 100 percent of the press-feed window, reducing stress on the material and the feed’s mechanical components.
