Dallas Industries Delivers Feed Line to Kapco Metal Stamping

Dallas Industries conventional feed line at Kapco Metal Stamping.

Dallas Industries, a manufacturer of coil handling and press feeding equipment and controls for the stamping industry, has announced that Kapco Metal Stamping, Grafton, WI, has taken delivery of a new Dallas Industries feed line. Kapco is a family owned manufacturer of precision metal stamping and formed parts. Its capabilities also include fabrication, tube fabrication, weldments, tool and die machining and assembly.

The automated conventional coil feed line is rated for materials up to 20,000 lbs. x 30" wide and is equipped with a model DRFH-530 servo feed (5" diameter rolls). It is fitted with a threading table, a heavy-duty nine-roll powered straightener (model DPS-3.5-30-9-5T) with peeler/threader/coil restrictor with a motorized end wheel and 20,000 lb. capacity coil reel with coil car.

It also features Dallas' SyncLoop technology, wherein the average line speed and loop depths are monitored and payout speeds adjusted automatically to ensure a smooth payout. The line also incorporates a number of automated axes (or AutoSet) for fast, repeatable set-ups.

AutoSet allows for some or all of the adjustable points on a feed line such as straightener rolls, edge guides, coil guides and feed pass line to be automatically positioned based on job parameters. The line is built on an Allen-Bradley Ethernet-based control architecture and features ProfileSelect, a 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.
