The addition of a pull-thru straightener to a ServoMax Servofeed is a cost saving design that saves floor space when compared to a conventional press feed line equipped with a power driven straightener. A servo feeder equipped with a pull-through straightener can also help reduce material scrap and reduce downtime. As a coil of material is depleted during operation, the coil set increases as the OD decreases. This change in coil set may require deeper roll penetration to produce an acceptable flat part. The pull-thru straightener is located right in front of the servo feeder. Therefore adjustments to the pull-thru straightener improve the quality of the part almost immediately reducing material jams and scraped parts.

Servomax H servo feeder with a SXM5 pull thru straightener capable of accurately feeding materials up to ¼" thickness. The Servomax H servo feeder utilizes a 4:1 pivot assembly that produces 4 times more roll pressure than competitive servofeeds for superior material traction. The pull-thru straightener is equipped with air lifted pinch rolls and powered pinch rolls synchronized with the servo feed rolls for ease of thread-up. An automatic lubrication system and adjustable height cabinet are also included.
