Waddington Direct Drive High Speed Servo Feeds

Feeds with drive gearboxes have backlash, but direct drive feeds perform reliably for billions of cycles with no change in accuracy or repeatability.

Very accurate     +-.0005

Very Fast up to 400 spm for many applications with high speed pilot release as an option.

Direct load connection eliminates maintenance of gearboxes, belts, or pulleys
Reduced number of components – no belts and pulleys. Gearing between rolls run in oil with full thickness range useable without any adjustments. Gears remain fully engaged through the entire feed thickness range.

New controls feature touch screen user interface.
