Press Feed Equipment

Dallas Industries will feature its Zig Zag feed line.

Dallas Industries personnel will discuss its lineup of press feed equipment, including air and servo feeds, pull-thru and powered straighteners, single and double coil reels and cradles.

The exhibit will feature the company's Zig-Zag servo feed. The Zig-Zag feed provides a way to minimize material scrap when running circle blanks. The feed has a one, two or three-out capacity with the servo feed index cycle made simultaneously with the cross-slide lateral travel, producing a diagonal stock movement in the automatic mode. This combination of the cross-slide lateral travel and diagonal stock movement of the Zig-Zag feed enables manufacturers to minimize the scrap generated when stamping out circles.

The manual mode has forward or reverse indexing and cross-travel indexing. The absolute feedback of the cross-slide eliminates the need for homing, making the feed ready at power-up. The servo is mounted on a linear bushing support base that travels perpendicular to the stock flow on case-hardened guide paths. The feed provides optimized strip advance and lateral length based on operator entry of material width, blank diameter and web thickness.
