Accessories and options.
Many accessories and options tailor Rapid-Air feeds to a variety of applications to feed metals, wire, plastic, fabric, you name it; and in most any shape including flat, round, extrusions, etc.
|Electric actuating valve.
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 & W feeds, and another with quick exhaust for Series L, P, FX & LX.
|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.
Replaceable wear plates can be grooved to accommodate special shapes and sizes.
Specialty designed guides to prevent buckling of very thin flat or wire stock feeding at high speeds and/or long progressions.
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.
See-through high-strength plastic safety guard shields the moving mechanism. For applications where safety requirements include machine guarding.
Provides longer stroke progressions between press strokes by cycling feed several times prior to a press stroke. Equipped with electric valve and fittings. Standard control variable up to 9 feed cycles - other control models available. All feed series can be used with the multi-stroke control.
|Pilot release stock clamp.
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.
