Coil Handling and Feeding

PRI offers a wide variety of coil handling, feeding, and cut to length equipment to uncoil, straighten, feed, and shear metal, paper, or plastic coiled material. PRI can help you select the proper equipment to deliver coil stock to power presses, shears, or similar equipment. Our coil processing equipment solutions include: air feeds, servo roll feeds, stock straighteners, single and double end coil reels, coil cars, coil cradles, pallet decoilers, complete coil lines, space saver coil lines, and cut to length lines.

Proper coil handling and feeding equipment provides added flexibility to your coil processing capabilities, reduces setup time, improves quality, reduces scrap, and minimizes floor space requirements.

Whether you need a simple low cost die/press mounted air feed or a complete coil handling and feeding line our Application Engineers can provide personal assistance to help you select and implement the best equipment for the job.

Our coil handling and feeding equipment is accurate, repeatable, and reliable. We have equipment to handle material widths from ¼” to 84” and thicknesses from .002” to .625”. Feed lengths of fractions to 999.999” or longer can be managed at high accuracy and high stroke speeds. Features are available to accommodate short or long run times with quick and easy setup.

If your tool change frequency has increased and your need for quick, accurate, repeatable coil feeding has become more important we can offer servo feed replacements for worn or unreliable air feeds, hitch feeds, or crank driven roll feeds. A new servo feed will allow you to change feed lengths in seconds, feed with accuracies of ± .002”, eliminate die breakage due to misfeeds, and feed material at faster press speeds.

We also offer drive and control upgrades for older servo feeds of most major brands.

Feeding and coil handling equipment can be integrated with new or existing press automation controls of most major brands.

We carry the most respected names in coiling handling, including Accra-Wire, Coe Press Equipment/Sesco Products, Durant, Rapid-Air, and Waddington.

PRI offers coil feeding recommendations to maximize pressroom productivity. Just specify coil weight, coil ID/OD min/max, thickness, min/max width, and max feed length and speed, and our Application Engineers will take care of the rest.

Air Feeds
Bridge style air feeds that grip flat material across the top are available for stock widths from fractions to 16” (406mm) wide, .150” (3.81mm) thick, and in lengths up to 20” (508mm). Pulling capacities of up to 250 pounds (114kg) are available on heavy duty models. Our smallest feed is capable of 260 cycles per minute at a 2” (50.8mm) progression and can cycle much faster at shorter progressions.
Open jaw air feeds grip material from the side and are available to handle much wider and thicker materials at longer feed lengths.
