Developed more than 30 years ago, the compact feed line has become the new standard in metal forming. It was specifically developed for multi-process shops where floor space is at a premium.
In addition to footprint constraints, application parameters play an important role in determining whether a compact coil line is a right choice. Although their industry applications vary widely, they are particularly important for high-volume factories such as the automotive and construction industries, which rely on flat, stress-relieved materials to produce a variety of high-quality parts.
Besides that, 3-in-1 lines are also critical in reducing scrap rates and improving overall line efficiency. Because compact lines have fewer components and the material does not have to travel as much as a conventional coil line. There are fewer interruptions in the stamping process and less tool wear.
