Dallas Industries (Troy, MI), a leading manufacturer of press feed equipment, will exhibit a Zig-Zag servo feed featuring its ProfileSelect™ with press compensation servo feed technology in Booth S-4208. The feed control technology features three modes of operation in one control package. The control provides time-based servo feed synchronization and auto compensation for on-the-fly increases in press speed. The unique ProfileSelect, which is part of the DallasSmart™ Controls technology, also minimizes electrical and mechanical stress on stamping equipment and materials. ProfileSelect uses a sinusoidal profile (cam motion) to provide a smooth motion and material feed, utilizing 100 percent of the press feed window while putting less stress on all mechanics. ProfileSelect is ideally suited for running cosmetic and/or delicate materials. The company will also feature upgrade packages that make existing press feed equipment more efficient.
