Waddington zig-zag feeds provide processors the ability to quickly and accurately feed materials to the press while also reducing waste.
Unlike standard servo feeds that move material forwards in pre-set increments, Waddington zig-zag feeds can move materials forward, backward and side to side. This allows processors to program their servo feed so that it will stagger where the press will land. In addition to cutting down on waste, this lets organizations punch patterns into the material.
The Waddington feed uses a servo feed to ensure extremely accurate tolerances, as well as the ability to program multiple jobs. When it’s time for a job change, the user can quickly navigate through the digital interface, pick the pre-programmed job and start going with very little downtime.
As with all EnSight industrial processing solutions, we can tailor Waddington zig-zag feeds to meet a variety of material and process needs.
