Press Room Equipment Co. recently shipped an Air Feed to a Structural Steel Fabricator in the Southeastern United States. The air feed was a Single Gripper Model with an Adjustable Height Mounting Cabinet. Press Room Equipment Co. air feeds feature a compact footprint, pilot release circuit with limit switch, stock roller guides, dual hydraulic deceleration or shock cushions, and crank operated stroke length adjustment with digital readout that is conveniently located at the operator’s position.
Air Feeds are still an economical method of feeding many types of products. They are especially useful in feeding many types of shapes or extrusions that aren’t easily rolled with a Servo Feed.
Other common options on Air Feeds are pull-thru straighteners, surge tanks, batch and/or multi-stroke counters, material support catenary rolls, non-marking grippers for surface critical materials, anti-buckling guides, and casters for portability.
Press Room Equipment Co. also manufactures Double Gripper Air Feeds, Bridge Gripper Air Feeds, and Belt Feeds for light material.
