Manufacturer Delivers Feed Lines to Orick Stamping

Dallas Industries, a manufacturer of coil handling, press feeding equipment and controls for the stamping industry, has announced that Orick Stamping in Elida, OH, has taken delivery of a new Dallas Industries feed line.

The feed line employs the unique Dallas LoopSelect compact coil line concept. This type of line allows for two different material loops to be employed depending on the thickness of the material. For lighter gauge materials, a front loop is developed between the reel and feeder/straightener. For heavier gauge materials, a back or "paddle" loop is developed below the mandrel. Both loops are controlled via Dallas' SyncLoop technology, wherein the coil O.D. and loop depths are monitored and payout speeds adjusted based on a combination of the line speed average (from the feeder), coil O.D. size and loop depth settings. The closed loop system constantly monitors the speed to maintain a smooth and low violence loop throughout the coil.

The compact line includes a servo feed with a piloting pull through straightener that enables both the upper feed and straightener rolls to lift off of the material momentarily for proper pilot registration. The feeder has 5" diameter rolls and the seven-roll straightener has 4" diameter rolls. The system is rated for up to 36" wide material at up to 0.135" thick (0.210" at 18" wide). The included reel and load car are rated for coil weights up to 20,000 lbs.

The line is built on an Allen-Bradley, Ethernet-based control architecture and feature ProfileSelect. ProfileSelect is a unique feed control system that is exclusively available through Dallas Industries. It uses a cam-motion (sinusoidal) profile. This smooth profile results in a feed motion that utilizes 100% of the press feed window, reducing stress on the material and the feed's mechanical components.
