Pro Series

Introducing Our New Pro Series Coil Press Feed Lines

We’re taking our high strength steels and aluminum processing knowledge and experience gained from our years serving automotive OEMs and offering it in a compact coil line intended for feeding directly into a blanking press, stamping press, shear, or Laser Cell. The PRO Series comes in three perfectly suited sizes for TIER suppliers who are processing UHSS, AHSS and aluminum for applications such as inner body panels and stamped parts. The name says it all; our PRO 40 processes up to 40” wide coils, the PRO 60, up to 60” and the PRO 80, up to 80” wide coils.

Background

For the past few decades, Automatic Feed Company has primarily provided high speed, surface critical steel and aluminum processing, featuring highly automated and highly productive blanking lines, cut-to-length lines, and laser blanking lines to automotive OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers. However, for over 70 years, AFCO has also supplied lines to the appliance, agricultural, truck and heavy construction industries specializing in heavy gauge and high strength steel.

While the OEMs still maintain much of their stamping in house, they rely heavily on Tier suppliers for much of the inner body blanks and progressive die stampings. With the new Pro Series coil feed lines, AFCO brings expertise for processing high strength steel and aluminum to the Tier stamping market.
