The feeding step is an important aspect of the punch press feeder, as it determines how much material is fed into the press each time. The feeding step is also known as the feed length and is based on the requirements of the stamping process. Different molds have different requirements for the feeding step, so it is important to determine the exact feeding step for a given project.
There are different types of punch press feeders, including NC servo feeders, air feeders, roller feeders, clamp feeders, and gear feeders. NC servo feeders have the ability to set the feeding step between 0 and 10 meters, making them a popular choice for many applications. However, other types of punch press feeders have strict requirements for the feeding step. For example, high-speed roller feeders come in different models based on the material width and feeding step required.
To determine the exact feeding step, it is important to consider the material’s width, thickness, and material, as well as the tonnage and feeding step required by the press. Customers often know the attributes of the material and the press, but may not be aware of the requirements for the feeding step. It is essential to understand the actual needs of the feeding step in order to choose the right punch press feeder.
In conclusion, the feeding step is a crucial aspect of the punch press feeder that must be carefully considered when choosing the right equipment. The feeding step affects the efficiency and effectiveness of the stamping process, so it is important to determine the exact feeding step based on the specific requirements of each project.
