Industrial Supplier & Distributor of Feeds & Coil Handling Products
TCR is an authorized distributor of COE Press Equipment’s line of feed and coil handling systems.
COE has been a trusted and well-established distributor of a wide array of high-quality coil processing equipment for more than 40 years. Their unique and fully integrated solutions automate processes ranging from highly flexible conventional lines for unwinding, straightening and feeding coiled steel into stamping presses, to high end space saving designs for the same purpose, and even cut to length systems. The end results for the end user is multiple options to choose from to match their needs thereby vastly improving process efficiencies and streamlining metal stamping operations.
Feed Lines & Cut-to-Length Systems
TCR distributes a wide range of COE products ranging from stand-alone coil reels, straighteners, and servo feeds to fully integrated coil processing systems.
The coil feed line of equipment is capable of handling a wide range of metals and alloys with varying physical, mechanical, and chemical properties. We distribute a range of standard models, many of which possess optional features and accessories that enable customization for unique applications, reduce setup times, and minimize the need for highly skilled operators.
The coil feed line systems are capable of handling a wide variety of materials including CRS, HRS, AHSS, stainless steel, and aluminum with coil widths up to 84 inches and thicknesses between 0.10 inches to 0.500 inches. Additionally, the standard equipment has the capacity to process coil weights up to 60,000 pounds, with a maximum feed speed of 250 FPM.
In addition to coil lines for prog and transfer applications COE offers their Value-Added Series Cut-to-Length (CTL) systems. These systems provide customers with the ability to perform in-house blanking, reducing operational costs and improving ROI. In-house blanking also gives our clients superior control over their stamping processes, which ultimately results in improved blanking quality.
Our CTL lines consist of COE’s standard feeder, straightener, and reel products. We also distribute an assortment of optional additions for these systems should they be required. Some of the main features of the CTL line include the ability to process coil dimensions with widths up to 84 inches, and thicknesses up to 0.375 inches. They are capable of handling different gauges of CRS, HRS, galvanized or stainless steel, and aluminum with feed speeds up to 250 FPM.
Feed lines and CTL systems are beneficial for stamping and fabrication of metal parts across a broad spectrum of industries, including:
- Consumer appliance
- Lawn and garden
- Heating and Cooling
- Air handling
- Heavy equipment
The applications of these systems vary widely and are used in countless parts and components including, but not limited to:
- Commercial, construction, and agricultural vehicles
- Light trucks
- Heavy trucks
- Air handling
- Heating and cooling
- Lighting fixtures
- Construction equipment
- Sinks and plumbing
- Sporting goods
- Surgical equipment
- Washers and dryers
TCR provides telescoping feed-to-tool material support equipment. TCR developed this solution in a variety of sizes and customizable options to fit any application.
The device supports the material from feed to tool. This allows increased feed acceleration without buckling, faster and safer thread ups, and results in faster press speeds. The device when closed, is collapsed into the window area, out of the way for die change. It can extend into the die area to accommodate for varying tool widths.
