MODEL SMXHD72SE4 FOUR ROLL, HEAVY DUTY SERVOMAX ELECTRIC ROLL FEED

 

Servo driven 4-roll feeds are state-of-the-art devices meeting modern production demand for delivering coil stock material to CTL/blanking operations with unprecedented speed and accuracy. The four roll feed allow for twice the surface contact area with half of the rolls pressure of conventional two roll feed units. To achieve highest output rates, uncoiler and leveler equipment must sustain both the linear output and response rates necessary to support the feed. Adequate slack material must be furnished and controlled properly. There is no substitute for a fully coordinated CTL/blanking system in meeting these considerations and thus achieving optimum productivity.

FEED FEATURES:

  1. The unit is powered by a modern, low-inertia, high performance servomotor for efficient response to feed-to-length demands.
  2. Roll positioning is continuously monitored by a low-inertia resolver.
  3. The closed loop control system dictates positioning accuracy of plus or minus .002" at any settable length.
  4. The accel/decel slope is pre-programmed in an optimized trapezoidal velocity profile to minimize stock slippage and deliver accurate lengths in a timely manner without impractical operator interpretations.
  5. Low inertia feed rolls are constructed of 4" diameter, 5/8" wall high strength tubing.
  6. Roll width maintains full stock contact and ample clearance at rated capacity.
  7. A matte chrome finish on the hardened and ground rolls improves wearability and traction.
  8. The top rolls are opened and closed via solenoid operated valving and two air cylinders for pilot release and powerful clamping without adjustment for stock thickness.
  9. Anti backup rolls, which prevent the pullback of stock during feed roll release, are pneumatically opened for threading.
  10. A heavy duty, precision gear reduction operates in a bath of oil to efficiently transfer power to the feed rolls with continuing accuracy.
  11. Five, zero backlash, universal couplings transfer power from the motor to the gearbox and on to all four feed rolls in the most efficient and serviceable, in line drive style.
  12. Entry and exit handwheel adjusted self centering edge guides with slip gear arrangement for off center when required allows adjustability from operator side of the feed.
  13. An automatic central lubrication system with air pump and electric timer facilitates maintenance by ensuring properly metered lubrication to critical points.
  14. Massive, 3" thick upright roller housings employ dual bearing arrangements for each end of each roll.
  15. The four roll design permits unparalleled tractions on the stock without the geometric increase in roll inertia that large diameter rolls would cause.
  16. Low inertia, moderate diameter rolls are enabled for high capacity stock feeding by an exclusive roll backup arrangement which prevents deflection, maintains parallelism.
  17. A rugged steel weldment cabinet is furnished to a fixed passline height suited to the application.
  18. Entry cascade rolls support the material in a gradual arc coming out of the looping area.
