  Mechanical Features:


Three-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.

Gears run in oil

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.

Precision Direct drive technology

High-speed air pilot release 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.
