Coe Press Equipment, Sterling Heights, Mich., has shipped a new coil feeding line to Hudson Industries, Hudson, Ind., a manufacturer of metal stampings for the automotive industry. Commissioned to feed a new Eagle 400T progressive-die press, the coil handling and feeding line has a maximum coil width capacity of 36 in. It handles coil weights up to 30,000 lbs. and can process high-strength steel at 55,000-PSI yield strength with a thickness of 0.020 to 0.187 in., depending on material width.
The line features a CPRF-536 roll feed with #3 matte chrome rolls and a ServoMaster controller that provides automatic passline height adjustment and roll pressure control through the Job Recipe Manager, helping to reduce setup time. It is housed in a heavy-duty cabinet base with a +5-in. height adjustment.
The line’s CPPS-406-36 power straightener has a 30-HP, AC, variable-speed drive and digital control; digital upper straightener roll height indicators; #3 matte chrome pinch rolls; and a Trabon automatic lubrication system. The straightener includes an Alligator peeler dekinker station that enables hands-free threading of the steel coil.
The accompanying CPR-300-36 coil reel has a hydraulic traveling coil car for coil staging and loading. Other features include fail-safe drag brake to prevent coil overrun, automatic drag brake compensation, and coil hold-down arm with motorized endwheel.
