Linear Transfer Automation New Product

Linear has announced that it has forged a strategic alliance with Strothmann Automation of Germany. Strothmann and Linear have entered into an exclusive technology agreement for the North American market for the Compact Crossbar and the high-speed Tandem Press Line Automation products from Strothmann.

The Strothmann Innovative feeder for press lines lowers production costs.
This feeder can do more than simply load and unload presses: The FeederPlus 6neo can also center blanks and deposit workpieces in the correct orientation. This reduces the costs and space requirements of press lines significantly.

The starting point was the FeederPlus 6, which has been used with great success in a total of 11 press lines for 10 years. Through further development into the FeederPlus 6neo the feeder was adapted to the current demands of modern press plants. The feeder is designed for max. 16 strokes/min. A sophisticated combination of state-of-the-art mechanics and highly-developed software allows the feeder to perform functions in the FoL and EoL, which would otherwise require bulky, expensive additional components.
