Coe Introduces Spacemaster Series 4 Coil Feed Line

Newly-designed compact coil press feeding line processes high-yield materials at over 70 SPM in under 23-feet of floorspace

Sterling Heights, Mich. November 09, 2015 -- OE Press Equipment has announced the availability of its new SpaceMaster Series 4 compact coil lines, which combine unwinding, straightening and feeding of coil stock into one piece of compact equipment capable. The new Series 4 is designed to process higher strength, higher yield materials within space-constrained manufacturing areas. The SpaceMaster Series 4 fits within 22-ft. of floor space where a conventional line would require a 40-ft. to 50-ft. footprint.


The patent-pending Series 4 Feeder-Straightener features COE's new servo-actuated pilot release of the upper straightener rolls. The servo driven lift mechanism provides more accurate piloting timing, faster pilot release, and higher SPM's than hydraulic and pneumatic designs. The systems also feature powered pull-off rolls to maintain tension on heavy-gauge and high-strength materials.

The SpaceMaster Series 4 is capable of handling materials from .020-in. to .40-in. thick, 12-in. to 72-in. wide, and 10,000-lb. to 60,000-lb. coil weights. Materials capable of being processed include CRS, HRS, AHSS, stainless and aluminum. The systems can achieve press feeding speed of 70 - 80 SPM as compared to 40 to 50 SPM in traditional compact coil lines.

Other features such as powered coil guides, hydraulic hold down with motorized endwheel, and pivoting peeler-debender are provided for effective coil containment and threading. Payoff is controlled by a linespeed averaging loop control and material is directed into a horizontal loop cage to optimize slack loop storage. These machines are provided as standard with all necessary features for effective coil containment, hands-free threading, and accurate feeding of the coil strip.

COE Press Equipment designs and manufactures a complete line of premiere coil handling and servo roll feed equipment from stand-alone roll feeds, straighteners, reels, cradles and air feeds to complete integrated feed systems and cut-to-length lines. The company supplies and services a wide variety of global markets and industries including automotive, appliance, lighting, metal processing, housewares, lawn and garden, contract stampers, tool and die builders, and many others.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
