Feeding system

4/6-roller motorized wire and strip feeding system

This system is meant to be integrated onto an existing wire or strip working machine. It is delivered with a double-plane wire straightener. It has the ability to feed in two directions, 4 different lengths of material.

The system houses a PLC + colour touch screen to set-up feeding parameters: length and feeding speed. It features a push-button to test each setting.

Two additional push buttons, on the main console, do help the setter to feed at manual speed in both directions. This speed can be adjusted as well.

Machine is equipped with 4 sensors. Each one will, independently, master one feeding, in speed, length and direction. It is the duty of the user to place each sensor in front of a metallic moving part in the main machine, in order to give the ‘top’ for each feeding (usually mounted on a cycle camshaft of the main machine.

The electronic parts + touch screen are mounted on a separate console, which console is movable on casters.

Standard languages: English and French.
