                                           ZIG-ZAG FEED

equipment_04_Servo-feed_-ZZ308

 

Zig-Zag feeds provide a great way to minimize material scrap when running circle blanks. Dallas’ reputation as a leader in zig zag feed technology is well-earned.

  • Program provides recommended strip advance length and lateral length based on operator entry of pattern, blank diameter and web thickness.
  • The feed index is made simultaneously with the cross slide lateral move.
  • Feed is mounted to a linear bushing support base which travels perpendicular to stock flow on case hardened guide shafts.

Servo Feeds With Pull-Through 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.

                   FEEDER / STRAIGHTENERS

This photo shows a cabinet mounted servo feed with pull thru straightener. This compact and affordable design is ideal for progressive die applications as it is equipped with our piloting pull thru straightener which lifts the upper straightener rolls to enhance proper pilot registration. This feed is also equipped with an automatic lube system and our touch screen controls system with ProfileSelect.

Servo Powered Straighteners

               PILOTING HEAD STRAIGHTENERS

servo-feeds-DRFS-436_SUBHERO_rtchd

 

To add even more versatility to a servo feed with pull thru straightener, consider adding our unique Piloting Head Straightener. This option allows the upper straightener rolls to lift during pilot registration making it a great feature to include on a progressive die application. By releasing the upper straightener rolls, the pilot pins can locate easily as the material will not be bound in the straightener rolls. The Dallas Pilot Head Straightener uses a unique ToggleLock closing mechanism to assure the head stays closed when straightening material.

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.

COIL CRADLES

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.

CRADLE STRAIGHTENER COMBO

equipment_11_CRADLE-STRAIGHTENER-COMBO

 

Cradle/Straightener Combo – This design combines the cradle and powered straightener into a single piece.  The material is decoiled from the top and is driven into a slack loop in front of the straightener.  A servo feed can be cabinet or press mounted to complete the feed line.  Optional “hands-free” threading devices can be added to optimize operator safety.

CRADLE WITH OVERHEAD DEFLECTOR

equipment_12_CRADLE-4-CSF_RGB

 

Cradle with Overhead Deflector – this is a common configuration for a cradle line.  The coil is driven via the cradle nest rolls and a pinch roll assembly up the overhead deflector where the loop is stored.  The material travels down the chute to a servo feed with pull thru straightener for an effective and compact, heavy gage feed line. Alternatively, a powered straightener may replace the pinch roll in the cradle base if desired.  Numerous options can be added to help safely process thick materials.

USED / REFURBISHED

Whether you’re looking for used equipment, or need your current machines refurbished, look to the experts in press feed technology. 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.
