Vendor Information: Press setups have traditionally used makeshift coil supports to prevent coil stock sagging and buckling between the press feeder and die entry. Improvised coil supports such as a pallet, a bucket, or some other internally fabricated support are typically used to address this problem. These traditional solutions can be expensive to build, setup, and too often are difficult to store then locate on the shop floor when needed for repeat runs. Material feeding is less than desirable and a potential for scratching the coil exists.
Bennett Tool & Die Company, Inc in Nashville, TN has solved this longstanding coil-feeding problem thanks to an innovative product, the CoilBridge Conveyor.
