Troy, Michigan – The Zig-Zag servo feed minimizes material scrap when running circle blanks. A one-, two-, or three-out capacity with the servo feed index cycle, made simultaneously with the cross-slide lateral travel, produces a diagonal stock movement in the automatic mode.

The manual mode has forward or reverse indexing and cross-travel indexing. The absolute feedback of the cross-slide eliminates homing, making the feed ready at power-up. The servo is mounted on a linear bushing support base that travels perpendicular to the stock flow on case-hardened guide paths.

The Zig Zag feed provides optimized strip advance and lateral length, based on operator entry of material width, blank diameter, and web thickness. Dallas Industries
