As roll feeds in stamping plants continue to age, operators experience increased downtime and limited access to obsolete replacement parts. Maintenance personnel are faced with a few options: track down hard-to-find replacement parts and deal with downtime, replace the entire roll feed system or retrofit. Evaluate your options with Morrell Group and our Roll Feed Retrofit Program.
How the Roll Feed Retrofit Program Works
First, a team of engineers will meet to review your current roll feed system and identify servo drives and motors. If your servos are current, we can easily replace them for you. If they are obsolete, we can just as easily retrofit your system for new servos and optimized performance.
Morrell Group’s Roll Feed Retrofit Program encompasses our full support as an Engineering Partner, Systems Integrator, and Value-Added Distributor. We collaborate with your team to gain a full understanding of your system and your manufacturing goals. Then we engineer a solution that optimizes your system, properly and consistently feeding the presses at an incredibly high rate of speed. Finally, we supply our solution and provide on-site support.
