It’s no secret that producing large amounts of precision parts from coil requires robust coil handling equipment up to and including
- Powerful Coil Reels, Unwinders, Decoilers
- Precision Straighteners to correct edge wave and center buckle
- Accurate pneumatic or servo feeding equipment able feed accurately and quickly
- Coil Cradles, Up Enders, Levelers and Threaders + More
Because of this, DMS is teamed with Dallas Coil Handling and Press Feeds to bring you the best. Dallas Industries designs, engineers, and manufacturers both air feeds and servo feeds, pull-thru and powered straighteners, single and double end reels, cars, cradles and a host of other options. Also, everything is manufactured just outside Detroit Michigan USA not overseas like others in the coil handling space..

Dallas servo feeds with pull-thru straighteners are engineered, built and have the power to easily handle materials up to 0.500 inch thick and widths from 6 up to 84 inches. They are best utilized in progressive die and transfer-type stamping operations. The close proximity of the straightener to the press tooling facilitates rapid flatness correction of coil stock as it is being processed. Pull-thru straighteners are available in 5, 7, 9, and 11 roll versions with roll diameters from 2 ¼” to 5”. Additional features can include LCD readouts, powered and air operated pinch rolls, automatic disengage clutch, chrome and polished rolls and even a pivoting straightening head for true pilot release.
Dallas Powered Straighteners have a reputation for durability and running the most demanding materials while meeting and often exceeding material flatness requirements. Standard features include gear driven and individually adjustable straightening rolls, separate and larger cluster gear driven entry and exit pinch rolls, heavy side plates, bearings with inner and outer races, hardened rolls, heavy beveled gear or jack-type adjustment. Dallas drive packages include AC vector drives with controls that can be synchronized with the feed for advanced slack loop control. Depending on the application, a number of features/options can be supplied including: matte or smooth chrome finished pinch rolls, high flight back-up rolls, AutoSet automation package, and easy access opening for straightener roll cleaning.
Dallas engineers a wide variety of reel sizes and configurations to meet your current requirements as well as future needs. With coil weight capacities ranging from 1,500 to 60,000 lb. in stock width capacities from 12 to 84 in. wide, we have you covered. Reels can be manufactured as either motorized (AC drive) or pull-off (drag brake) depending on which is best suited for your application. Dallas reels are built with superb quality that includes the use of pillow-block bearings, heavy-duty cabinets, and only well-known brand names of supplied components. Standard features on our reel include wedge or link type expansion, manual or hydraulic expansion (and/or hydraulic threading drives), coil keepers and loop controls. Options include various loop controls (laser, photo electric, etc.), brakes designs including failsafe designs, hold down coil restrictors, and load cars.

Our craftsmen specialize in machine renewal and we are best-equipped to handle your used or refurbished needs. The photos below illustrate the painstaking process we go through to get machines to as like-new as possible. And what’s in it for you? It may be as simple as economics. We can retrofit and restore and the economics can be truly dramatic. But it’s more than “skin deep.” It’s the construction. The mechanics. The electronics and all that goes into getting your machine back to its most useful and profitable operation.
Dallas air feeds are available in 6 different models with capacities for standard and heavy-duty press feed requirements. Dallas air feeds will handle material widths up to 84” and run .010” to .500” material thickness. A properly sized and equipped air feed system will make an economical and efficient press partner for many low to medium speed applications. Ruggedly constructed, accurate and dependable, Dallas air feeds include standard features such as pilot pin release and mechanical digital stroke readout to enhance performance. Optional features are recommended for specific application requirements. Most air feeds are equipped with a pull thru straightener as a compact feeder straightener combination and are available with 5, 7, 9, or 11 straightening rolls to meet all flatness requirements.
