Electric Actuating Valves

ElectricActuatingValve

ELECTRIC ACTUATING VALVES

An alternate to the standard actuating valve provided with each feed. Electric valve 2-way, normally open, 115 vac/60hz one size for series A & B feeds, one for Series C, D, F, H, J & W feeds, and another with quick exhaust for Series L, P, FX & LX.

Custom Stock & Feed Clamps

CustomStockFeedClamps

CUSTOM STOCK & FEED CLAMPS

To accommodate special material configurations, such as extrusions, delicate surfaces or soft, pliable materials. Rubber, leather, nylon and vinyl are among the clamp insert materials available.

Special Wear Plates

SpecialWearPlates

SPECIAL WEAR PLATES

Replaceable wear plates can be grooved to accommodate special shapes and sizes.

Anti-Buckling Guides

AntiBucklingGuides

ANTI-BUCKLING GUIDES

Specialty designed guides to prevent buckling of very thin flat or wire stock feeding at high speeds and/or long progressions.

Belt Feeds

BeltFeed

BELT FEEDS

Enables feeds to accurately feed very limp delicate stock, including metals, teflon and other tapes, foil strips, fabrics, paper, photographic film and gasket materials. Material (even skeleton) is sandwiched between two endless belts to move it into or out of a press or other machines.

Safety Guards

SafetyGuards

SAFETY GUARDS

See-through high-strength plastic safety guard shields the moving mechanism. For applications where safety requirements include machine guarding.

Pilot Release Stock Clamps

PilotReleaseStockClamp

PILOT RELEASE STOCK CLAMPS

The spring-loaded stock clamp, optional with all Rapid-Air feeds, is recommended for most applications. For unusual requirements, the pilot release stock clamp is available. An electric signal actuates the pilot release clamp so that it lifts completely to allow for free movement of stock to position material when pilots are used. Solenoid valve not included. Order separately from Rapid-Air.

Air Feed Flat Stock & Wire Straighteners

FlatStockWireStraighteners

AIR FEED FLAT STOCK & WIRE STRAIGHTENERS

Add-on flat stock and wire straighteners for air feeds. Models SO and WO can be attached to our air feeds for special light duty applications.

Loop Controls

RS1

MODEL RS2
Optional optical non-contact loop control

Automatically adjusts the operating speed of a powered reel to maintain a free material loop and to match material flow to a required line speed. No moving parts, no stock contact, no loop sensing arm, mechanical linkage or other hardware. Works with equal precision for both conductive and non-conductive materials. The optical distance sensor locates the material position anywhere in the sensing range. Signals are transmitted to an integral microprocessor which programs the speed of the coil reel. A free loop, even at high speeds, can be kept under precise control without erratic stop and start. Special stock types and configurations can be processed without damage – regardless of coil coating finishes, density or capacity.

RTB

MODEL RTB
Optional electronic hi-lo touch system loop control

The Rapid-Touch system works without use of a material sensing arm by sensing the upper and lower position of conductive material. For use with non-conductive material, an adjustable probe is furnished on the inside of the large diameter, flexible sensors. As the material ranges between the sensors, a solid state controller automatically sets the most uniform line speed for continuous operation and changes this speed to match variable requirements. Power requirements and interfacing are satisfied when the plug connection is made with the Rapid-Air reel. Sensor height is adjustable three ways to accommodate varying material loop positions.

LLRIC

OPTIONAL LLRIC / LLRIM
Remote mount single actuating arms.

The modular design of our Rapid-Air proportional loop arm allows it to be remote mounted. This offers operators a high degree of loop flexibility in unique payout and rewind applications.

ExternalLoopControlPort

EXTERNAL LOOP CONTROL PORT
Included with all powered reels and straighteners.

Our standard loop control for Rapid-Air power products is a pushbutton unit with digital display. This very flexible proportional control allows fine setting or speed, loop angle and loop height. A remote or external loop sensor may be plugged directly into this control as an alternate loop control.

LEFT TO RIGHT: Standard Adapter, Lightweight Arm, Counterbalanced Arm.

DC-Drive-Reels

STANDARD FEATURES
On DC Drive reels and stock straightener loop control.

Both a lightweight low inertia loop sensing arm and a heavier, counterbalance arm can be used on all powered reel models. The counterbalanced arm fits directly through the loop sensing arm shaft. A counterweight can be shifted to apply more or less tension to material being payed out or rewound. When the lightweight arm is used, it fits into a sleeve that is inserted in the shaft hole and locked into place.
