50 Tips for Better Die Protection


Tip #10 listed below as an example

Half feed for high speed

If the feed cycle is long enough, or the press runs fast enough, full feed won’t occur until after the critical angle.

If this happens, your full feed sensor needs to top stop the press to avoid sticking it on bottom.

Die damage can result…. But… Don’t stop there.
Install a sensor to detect the strip half way through the progression (or early enough to E-stop).


Dorner Retractable Tail Conveyor

A retractable conveyor, or retracting tail, is a conveyor frame with the ability to retract or extend, typically on slides or rails. The capability to retract, either manually or pneumatically, can improve system flexibility by adding functionality into your conveyor. There are a variety of applications for retractable conveyor tails.

Some of the major uses include:

  • Reject for contaminated or rejected products
  • Depositing products onto another conveyor or tray. This can be done in a precise, exact layout or simply dropping product.
  • Product Routing into multiple lines.
  • Walk-Through applications where you need quick and easy access to the other side of the line or access to equipment. Depending on your application, the retracting function can happen infrequently with low accuracy or it can reoccur every few seconds with precision.
