Dual In-Die Conveyors for Fast Part RemovalFebruary 26, 2020
Automatic Feed Co., Napoleon, OH, has introduced vacuum in-die conveyors that can remove multiple blanks through the exit end of a press, eliminating the need for side-out conveyors or side stackers. Based on a standard Automatic Feed design, the sizing of the conveyor system adapts to fit each customer’s dies.
The systems offer variable belt speed to enable integration of part-removal timing with the press stroke. Venturis create a secure vacuum hold to maintain part orientation as they move along the conveyors. And, they feature a variable-frequency drive integrated into the coil- feed-line controls.The conveyors, rated to 650 ft./min., feature user-friendly operator screens that enable individual programming of speed per part. Pneumatic power and control are supplied from existing equipment.
