Troy, Michigan – Dallas Industries, a manufacturer of coil handling, press feeding equipment, and controls for the stamping industry, has delivered two BackLoop SpaceSaver compact feed lines to Tru Form Manufacturing LLC, Dickson, Tennessee.

One of the lines is 36” wide, the other is 48”. Each is rated for handling coil weights up to 20,000 lb. Both are outfitted with automated coil guides, SyncLoop, and hydraulic peeler/threader/coil restrictor with 3M Synthetic Fiber Wheel for maximum grip during threading and rewinding. They each have servo feeds with 7 roll pull-thru straighteners. The pull thru straighteners have a Toggle-Lock roll lift feature to lift all upper straightener rolls during pilot release, as well as ProfileSelect and dual roll-edge guides with self-centering and independent adjustment.

BackLoop SpaceSaver feed lines can have a footprint as short as 20ft featuring servo feeds with pull-thru straighteners and heavy-duty drives. They have the power to handle materials up to 1/4” thick safely while maintaining accurate feed tolerances. These lines feature a peeler/threader/debender with coil restrictor providing hands-free threading of material from coil to press.

The line features ProfileSelect, a feed control system that uses a cam-motion (sinusoidal) profile. This smooth profile results in a feed motion that uses 100% of the press feed window, reducing stress on the material and the feed’s mechanical components.
