Servo Press Feeds with Pull-Thru Straighteners

Another option for feeder/straightener units is a servo press feed with a pull-thru straightener.  These systems are a great way to save space and cost.  The servo press feed is sized with a high torque servo motor and reducer to provide the power for the feed rolls to pull the material thru the break rolls of the straightener.  Feed Lease offers pull-thru straighteners for all sizes of both our EF and RF series servo press feeds.

Airlift Pilot Release System
for Upper Straightener Rolls

airlift_pilot

For over 35 years, Feed Lease has employed a unique pull-thru straightener for feeder/straightener combos that require pilot release. We call it Airlift. An Airlift straightener's upper rolls pilot release momentarily, allowing the pilots to register properly. Airlift provides true pilot release without sacrificing the money and space saving benefits of using a feeder/straightener combo.
