High-speed roller feeders offer a wide range of specifications and can be customized to meet specific material width and feed length requirements. When selecting the right feeder for your application, it is essential to align your choice with your actual needs. FANTY Machinery is here to provide a detailed overview of the key factors to consider when choosing a high-speed roller feeder:
1. Press Machine Details:
Brand, model, and tonnage of the press machine.
2. Output Shaft Orientation:
Identify the direction of the press machine's output shaft concerning your perspective when facing it. Is it on the left, right, or facing you? In the case of traditional mechanical press machines with flywheels on both sides, ensure the output shaft is at least 50mm away from the brake disc. If uncertain, you can send us images of your press machine, and we'll assist with the determination.
3. Material Width:
Specify the width of the material to be fed.
4. Material Thickness and Material Type:
Provide information on the material's thickness and its composition.
5. Feed Length and Precision Requirements:
Define the feed length (each feeding cycle) and the precision required.
6. Feed Rate (High-Speed):
The feed rate per minute is related to the feed length in each cycle.
7. Die Height and Presence of Pilot Pins:
Mention the die height and whether the die has pilot pins. Additionally, specify the height of the press machine's working table concerning the lower die.
8. Press Machine Working Table Width and Thickness (Side):
Provide the width and thickness of the press machine's working table, particularly on the side where the feeder will be installed.
9. Output Shaft Diameter and Length (for back-up roller installation):
Mention the diameter and length of the press machine's output shaft.
10. Center Height of the Output Shaft Above the Press Machine's Working Table:
- Calculate the length of the connecting rod.
* Special Feeder Accessories
1. Feed Length Micro-Adjustment Device (for RF-1310 or presses with a capacity of 65T and above):
This device, structurally similar to the eccentric disc of the roller feeder, is installed on the rocker arm and replaces the rocker arm's connection to the transmission shaft. It allows fine adjustment of the feed length within 0.1mm, saving time.
2. Addition of PU Rollers (Imported from Germany):
PU rollers are suitable for sensitive, soft materials and do not cause any imprints or scratches on the material surface during the stamping process.
3. Pneumatic Relaxation:
The standard relaxation method for roller feeders is mechanical rod relaxation. However, if the press machine's structure is not compatible with the mechanical method, pneumatic relaxation can be added by installing a cylinder and electromagnetic valve.
In summary, when selecting a high-speed roller feeder, it is crucial to meticulously consider these factors to ensure that your chosen machine aligns with your production requirements. FANTY Machinery is dedicated to providing you with the knowledge and guidance necessary to make informed decisions for optimizing your manufacturing processes.
