Formtek-Maine ships three press feed lines

Formtek-Maine recently provided three press feed lines to a building hardware and connector manufacturer to replace existing equipment. Each system can handle cold-rolled steel up to 0.125 in. thick at 36 in. wide and 0.250 in. thick at 6 in. wide in coils weighing up to 20,000 lbs. The system is equipped with Allen Bradley Kinetix controls with Compact Logix PLC and Formtek’s Total System Control package. A full-color touchscreen HMI at the straightener controls the back of the line and includes functions such as digital roll position readouts, thread-up instructions with illustrations, a maintenance schedule with diagrams, a lubrication schedule, and diagnostic fault messages with recommended remedies.
