Air feeder feeding step adjustment
- Nov 23, 2018 -

The feeding step is the feeding length of the material of the feeder. It is also referred to as the feeding length. It is one of the most important parameters of the air feeder. Its size is determined according to the actual stamping process of the punching die. There are different stamping processes with different requirements for the feeding step. For this reason, the feeding step of the air feeder has a certain adjustment range, and it is necessary to adjust the feeding step of the air feeder every time the new mold is replaced. A ring.

The principle of the air feeder is similar to that of a medical injector, which pushes the moving splint through the cylinder to realize the feeding. The adjustment of the feeding step and the actual adjustment of the setting are the moving amount of the moving splint. The specific adjustment steps are as follows:

1. In order to make the moving amount of the moving splint of the air feeder substantially the same as the feeding step, the required number of adjusting feeding steps (the snap ring) are mounted on the center rod (also referred to as a guide rail).

Special attention should be paid to this operation:

• When installing the adjustment feed step spacer (snap ring), make sure the protective gloves are properly worn.

• Do not operate if the air feeder feed step ring (snap ring) is not properly installed. If it falls off during operation, it will cause damage to the air feeder accessory parts.

2. Loosen the locating bolts using the included hex wrench.

3. The micro-adjustment of the feeding step is performed by adjusting the knob of the feeding step fine adjustment screw. (The feed step fine adjustment screw rotates counterclockwise for 1 week, and the feed length is 1mm.)

Adjust the gap between the moving splint section and the adjustment feed step spacer (snap ring) or the nylon backing ring using a vernier caliper.

4. After the measurement is completed, it is necessary to lock the positioning screw, and then fix the feeding step fine adjustment screw.

5. Perform a single stamping test on the punching machine. After multiple times, measure whether the feeding step is in line with the stamping processing requirements. If the step is correct, the automatic continuous stamping can be directly performed; if not, the adjustment step should be re-adjusted.
