A tailout feeder offers the advantage of being retracted within the safety zone during die changes, but then can extend out close to the die when the line is running. By closing up this gap, less material is wasted. Additionally, COE's tail-out feeder design results in less material being left in the die, making the remaining material removal quicker and safer.
COE's tailout feeder extension is manually operated via an air cylinder. During normal operation the primary feed indexes the coil into the die. Once the tailout sequence is initiated, the secondary feeder takes over the feed cycle. COE can custom-designed the equipment frame so that it attaches directly to your existing servo-feed.
A tailout feeder can help increase production rate and control costs – providing a manufacturer with increased flexibility, safety and material savings, helping to quickly prove out its worth on the pressroom floor.
