Optimize Straightener-Feeder Power Consumption Based on Sheet Thickness

December 7, 2021

Amada Press System America Inc., Erlanger, KY, has introduced its Eco Release mechanism for straightener-feeders, designed to control and optimize air-cylinder pressure while processing sheet. By optimizing pressure based on sheet thickness, the mechanism promises to reduce power consumption by as much as 50 percent and reduce CO2 emissions, say company officials. 

Eco Release-equipped products, designed to contribute to metal formers’ sustainability efforts, include several models of straightener-feeders for coils to 51 in. wide and with sheet-thickness capacity to 0.354 in.
