LD Belt Drive

  A Legacy design with modern features.

LD belt driven feeds fit in narrow spots
while not quite as accurate as direct drive feeds they still feed better than .001 inches
Available with motor mounted over or under feed rolls
Air Pilot release 3 is now standard on all LD series feeds
  Zero backlash and compliance provides more responsive system performance
Integral sine encoder feedback provides resolution of over 2 million counts per revolution
  Gearing in oil between rolls, with full thickness range without any adjustments.    
  Gears remain fully engaged through the entire feed thickness range.    
Basic specifications:
Maximum Stock Width                 3 to 25"
Maximum Stock Thickness         .125 "
Minimum Feed Length                 .0000"
Maximum Feed Length                 1200.0000"
Standard Accuracy                         +/-.0005"
  Mechanical Features:


Two-inch diameter smooth steel finish rolls Our special low inertia roll design is proven performer in thousands of applications.

Heavy duty dowel-pinned frame. After assembly and alignment, the frame is dowel-pinned. This insures long-term alignment and feeding accuracy, and has none of the stability problems associated with cast feed frames. The steel is finished with black oxide.

Permanently lubricated anti-friction bearings Long life back-to-back sets.

Gears between top and bottom rolls increasing stock-gripping force and eliminating backlash between the upper and lower rolls.

Two adjustable stock entry guides Cam rollers with handles. No tools are required for adjustment.

Horizontal hold-down rollers at feed input These entry rollers keep material from jumping the stock guides during very high acceleration.

High-speed air pilot release 3 or mechanical pilot release Used for releasing the feed rolls, allowing pilot pins to take control of strip position, or to help compensate for defects in strip geometry. Waddington feeds feature one of the fastest air pilot release systems in use today.

Customers routinely use them for applications as high as 300 SPM. Waddington offers many types of mechanical pilot release mechanisms depending on press stroke length and speed.

We also offer servo-driven pilot release for applications that involve very high speeds and/or no mechanical access to the press crank shaft.
