Mexico's Manesa Gains Feed LinesAugust 23, 2019
Dallas Industries, a Troy, MI-based manufacturer of coil handling and press feeding equipment and controls for the stamping industry, has delivered two new UnderLoop SpaceSaver feed lines to Manufacturas Estampadas S.A. de C.V. (Manesa), Chihuahua, Mexico, a metal-parts manufacturer.
The two press-feeding lines, rated for coils to 6000 lb., run steel to 4 mm thick and 36 in. wide. One line is a servo feed with piloting pull-through straightener with load car. The other: a cut-to-length line with a production hydraulic shear, servo feed with pull-through straightener with no load car. Features for both include hands-free threading system with a servo-driven synthetic tension roll for maintaining proper coil tension while uncoiling. In addition, a lower pivoting table with a feeder/straightener mounted rocker arm/de-bender provides easy coil threading and an uncoiler that includes powered coil-guide rolls.
