At Dallas, we have 30+ years of servo feed design and manufacturing experience… and we continue to innovate. Each model of servo feed from Dallas has a pivoting upper roll lift for better gear mesh and even roll pressure, greasable roller bearings for maximum durability and comes with our exclusive ProfileSelect software that minimizes stress and jerk. Dallas servo feeds are available in models from 6 to 84 inches wide with material thickness capacities from .010 up to .750 and speeds up to 300 strokes per minute. Additional standard mechanical features include cluster gear driven upper rolls, pneumatic pilot release, heavy duty entry support roll assemblies with overhead trap rolls, AC brushless servo motors coupled to precision gear boxes, matte finished chrome feed rolls, and adjustable entry edge guides. Our servo feed controls include numerous standard features, along with options such as zig-zag motion, gag feeding and dual axis (push-pull) controls.
Rapid-Air pioneered the first compact air feed with internal air circuitry, setting the technological and performance standards for the industry. The unique dual air valve system provides outstanding performance backed by reliability that has made Rapid-Air the recognized innovator and leader in air feed technology.
SERVO FEEDS - WITH PULL-THRU STRAIGHTENERS
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.
Dallas coil cradle capacities range from 4,000 to 50,000 lbs. and come standard with heavy-duty cabinets and side plates built to stand up to your toughest jobs. Features include full width powered nest rolls, adjustable side plates, AC variable speed drives, and cluster geared pinch rolls. Both pinch rolls and nest rolls are powered from a common cradle drive. Optional overhead, enclosed loop deflectors and guide-chutes direct the flow of the material and provide easy loading. Powered straighteners can be added to this configuration. Alternatively, cradle/straightener combo units (slack loop in front) are also available.
