Rowe Machinery recently teamed up with B&K® Levelers and AIDA press to supply Laser Technologies a Press Feed Coil Line to blank precision Laminations.
Rowe Machinery supplied the 30,000LB Coil Loading Car, Uncoiler and the High Speed Servo Roll Feeder. Primary in the decision to utilize the Rowe Press Feed Equipment was the part accuracy guaranteed by the Servofeed's AC Servo Feed Positioning Drive and the Zero Backlash Precision Oil Bath Gearbox.
A B&K® Precision Corrective Leveler was installed in the new Press Feed Line to precisely control flatness of the finished parts.
Precision Levelers are much better at removing coil set and crossbow than coil straighteners or coil flatteners. Precision Corrective Levelers can also eliminate shape defects such as center buckle and edge wave in coil strip by selectively bending the work rolls. B&K® Corrective Levelers utilize a series of relatively small closely spaced leveler rolls that incorporate roller back-ups to prevent deflection. This arrangement allows the material to be worked beyond the yield point to remove trapped material stresses. The result is material that is more stable so that part quality is consistent.
