Graybill's Tool and Die

Reel-Fed Integrated Equipment

Large equipment is not a problem for GTD. This bearing prep line is approximately 35 feet long. It takes reel- fed stock and feeds it through the equipment. Several sizing operations are performed on the strip as well as edge shaping. The strip is then passed into a forming press where the final product is produced. GTD built all the components, constructed the electrical cabinets, and integrated everything together. The 4 drives in this equipment are "cascaded" in speed so that tension is maintained in the strip. A welder is included to splice new reels of material for near continuous operation. Views of the electrical cabinets are located in the electrical cabinet area of our website. Click here to see photos of electrical cabinets.
