Coil Handling Equipment
Press Feeds With Pull Through Straighteners
servo feeds with pull-thru straighteners are engineered, built and
have the power to easily handle materials up to .650 inch thick
and widths from 6 up to 84 inches. Coil weights can be up to 50,000
lb. They are best utilized in progressive die and transfer-type
stamping operations. The close proximity of the straightener to
the press tooling facilitates rapid flatness correction of coil
stock as it is being processed.
Dallas pull-thru straighteners are available with 5, 7, 9, 11 and
17 straightening rolls in 2-1/4 up to 3-1/2 inch diameters on 5
inch centers depending on flatness requirements. Additional features
include LCD readouts, powered and air operated pinch rolls, automatic
disengage clutch, pivoting straightening head plus special roll
coatings are also available, all designed to help reduce job change
down time while making presses more productive.
West Bend Equipment mechanical upender offers a cost-effective means
of upending metal coils, molds, dies and other heavy and bulky loads.
upenders can rotate steel coils and other cubic loads though 90
degrees. West Bend Equipment mechanical upenders are available in
standard configurations or may be custom engineered for your particular
application to up-end or down-end your load. West Bend mechanical
upenders have a cylindrical shaped cradle that is placed on four
machined rollers. Rotation is achieved with a gear motor driving
a single or dual chain sprocket.
design features for mechanical upenders include:
Standard designs from 3,000 to 100,000 pounds capacity
designs with capacities up to 120 tons (109,090 kg)
platforms or V-saddles to support coils in a horizontal orientation
platform sizes and shapes available
180-degree base rotation which eliminates fork truck repositioning
or powered conveyors which allow integration with the production
Bend Equipment hydraulic upenders provide great flexibility to meet
your material handling requirements. Hydraulic upender platforms
can be sized to handle a wide variety of load configurations, including
long loads such as paper rolls, or other loads whose length is significantly
greater than its width or diameter.
upenders employ one or more double-acting cylinders to rotate the
platforms. On a hydraulic upender, one platform may be significantly
smaller or larger than the other. This makes these upenders suitable
for loads that are larger in one dimension than the other. These
coil upenders can also handle more than one coil.
Bend Equipment Hydraulic Upender The hydraulic upender's power unit
provides an ideal power source for secondary functions such as shifting
saddles and pallet centering.
of hydraulic coil upenders with fully integrated, heavy-duty hydraulics
and precise positioning is available.
platform sizes can be designed to customize West Bend's hydraulic
upenders. Other options include tilting capability, various types
of conveyor decks, and wheels for rail travel or mobile capability.
Single and Double Arm Reels
engineers a wide variety of reel sizes and configurations to meet
your current requirements as well as future needs. Single and double
arm reels handle coils weighing from 1,500 to 60,000 lb. in stock
width capacities from 12 to 84 in. wide. Dallas manufactures both
motorized and pull-off type reels depending on which is best suited
for your application.
examples of what sets Dallas reels apart is that we use pillow-block
bearings, heavy-duty cabinets, and only well-known brand names of
features on Dallas equipment include wedge or link type expansion,
with manual or hydraulic threading drives, coil keepers and loop
controls. Several types of loop controls are available including
dancer arms, paddle type, ultrasonic and photo electric, all of
which help and eliminate surface damage on the material while enhancing
payout operations. Dallas uses name brand brakes, which can be electric,
air operated, or fail-safe type.
