Dallas Delivers Another Feed Line to Toledo Tool & Die

May 15, 2023

dallas-toledo-tool-dieToledo Tool & Die, Toledo, OH, has purchased another feed line from Dallas Industries, the third Dallas line it has purchased in the last 3 yr. The new LoopSelect SpaceSaver feed line is rated at 30,000 lb. by 72-in. wide and boasts 8-in.-dia. rolls, and features a nine-roll, piloting pull-thru straightener with 5-in.-dia. rolls.  Also featured: selectable loop control—the front loop mode allows processing of light-gauge material at long feed lengths and higher speeds, and the back loop mode allows processing of heavy-gauge materials using a clockspring loop to form beneath the coil. 

The line is built on an Allen-Bradley, Ethernet-based control architecture and includes the Dallas SyncLoop and ProfileSelect technologies. SyncLoop monitors average line speed and loop depth and automatically adjusts payout speed; ProfileSelect creates a sinusoidal (cam-motion) feed profile that results in smooth feed motion utilizing 100 percent of the press-feed window, reducing stress on the material and the feed’s mechanical components.
