Coe Announces New SpaceMaster® Series 5 Coil Feed Lines for the Pressroom

Share Article

Coe Press Equipment has announced the introduction of its SpaceMaster Series 5 coil feed lines combine unwinding, straightening and feeding of metal coil stock into one piece of compact equipment capable of processing higher strength, higher yield materials within space-constrained areas.

COE Press Equipment's new SpaceMaster® Series 5 compact coil lines.

COE Press Equipment has announced the launch of its new patent pending SpaceMaster® Series 5 compact coil lines, which combine unwinding, straightening and feeding of coil stock into a single piece of compact equipment that can fit within 28 ft. of floor space where a conventional line feeding a metal stamping press would require a 50-ft. to 60-ft. footprint.

The servo-driven feeder-straightener has 5-in. diameter straightening rolls and 6.7-in. diameter pinch rolls for processing heavy-gauge and high-strength metals. The straightener rollers provide a smaller radius around which to bend the material to accommodate advanced high strength steels (AHSS), which need to be bent more severely in order to exceed higher yield points. Featuring COE’s advanced heavy duty straightener head design, the SpaceMaster Series 5 enables stampers and fabricators to process a wider range of materials including materials with yield strengths up to 1000 Mpa.

Another key feature of the SpaceMaster Series 5 design is its servo-driven pilot release, which momentarily relieves built up stress and binding of the strip through the feed and die due to feed length variation, misalignment, or camber of the coil strip. Whereas most roll feeds and feeder-straighteners are provided with air or hydraulic operated pilot release mechanism, COE’s design provides more accurate piloting timing, faster pilot release, and higher SPM’s. The systems also feature powered pull-off rolls to maintain tension on heavy-gauge and high-strength materials.            

The SpaceMaster Series 5 lines are capable of handling coil materials from .040-in to 0.620-in. thick, 24-in. to 72-in. wide, and 10,000-lb. to 60,000-lb. coil weights. Metals capable of being processed include CRS, HRS, AHSS, stainless and aluminum. The systems are capable of press feeding speeds of 50 to 60 SPM.
