COE Ships Progressive Press Feed Line to Hudson Industries

Sterling Heights, Mich. – COE Press Equipment announced that it has shipped a new coil feeding line to Hudson Industries (Hudson, IN), a manufacturer of metal stampings for the automotive industry. Commissioned to feed a new Eagle 400T progressive die press, the new coil handling and feeding line has a maximum coil width capacity of 36”, coil weight capability up to 30,000#, and can process high strength steel at 55,000 psi yield strength with a thickness of 0.020” – 0.187”, depending upon material width.

The line features a CPRF-536 roll feed with #3 matte chrome rolls and a ServoMaster Controller that provides automatic passline height adjustment and roll pressure control through the Job Recipe Manager, helping to reduce set up time.
