Servo-Feed Press Feed ControlOctober 1, 2014
Dallas Industries, Troy, MI, will demonstrate its DRF-308 servo feed, equipped with its latest control technology, at FABTECH. The new control features three modes of operation in one package—time-based servo-feed synchronization; auto compensation for on-the-fly increases in press speed; and the unique ProfileSelect technology that minimizes electrical and mechanical stress on stamping equipment and materials.
ProfileSelect uses a sinusoidal profile (cam motion) that provides a smooth motion and material feed, utilizing 100 percent of the press-feed window while putting less stress on all mechanics. The process is ideally suited for progressive-die work when the part’s cosmetics are a factor, or when running delicate material. www.dallasindustries.com
