Press-Feed Equipment Lineup Features Zig-Zag FeedOctober 1, 2017
Dallas Industries will discuss its lineup of press-feed equipment, including air and servo feeds, pull-through and powered straighteners, single- and double-coil reels, and cradles. The company’s zig-zag servo feed has a one-, two- or three-out capacity with the servo-feed index cycle made simultaneously with the cross-slide lateral travel, producing a diagonal stock movement in the automatic mode. This combination of the cross-slide lateral travel and diagonal stock movement of the zig-zag feed enables manufacturers to minimize the scrap generated when stamping out circles. The manual mode has forward or reverse indexing and cross-travel indexing, and the absolute feedback of the cross-slide eliminates the need for homing, making the feed ready at power-up.
The servo is mounted on a linear bushing support base that travels perpendicular to the stock flow on case-hardened guide paths, and the zig-zag feed provides optimized strip advance and lateral length based on operator entry of material width, blank diameter and web thickness.
