Troy, Mich.-based Dallas Industries, a manufacturer of coil handling, press feeding equipment and controls for the stamping industry, delivered a new UnderLoop SpaceSaver feed line to Tennessee Industrial Specialties Inc., Sugar Springs, Tenn., a manufacturer of steel belt conveyors and replacement conveyor belts.
The UnderLoop SpaceSaver feed line design consists of a hands-free threading system featuring a servo-driven synthetic tension roll for maintaining proper coil tension while uncoiling. The system also incorporates a lower pivoting table with a feeder/straightener mounted rocker arm/de-bender for easy coil threading. The uncoiler includes powered coil guide rolls that eliminate the need for slide-on coil keepers and automatically centers the coil on the mandrel. The servo feed with pull-thru straightener combo features pilot release for both the upper feed and straightener rolls
The UnderLoop system delivered to Tennessee Industrial Specialties is designed to run steel up to 0.250 in. thick and up to 30 in. wide. It is rated for coils up to 15,000 lb. The model DRFHDS-636 servo feed has 6 in. feed rolls with matte chrome finish and a pull-thru straightener with 4 in. diameter rolls. To enhance setup time, the feeder passline height, edge guides, and coil guide rolls for auto coil centering the coil on the uncoiler are automatically adjusted to position. The settings for these axes are stored in the job recipe—a Dallas feature termed AutoSet.
