Pro Series

Introducing Our New Pro Series Coil Press Feed Lines

We’ve taken our high strength steel and aluminum processing experience and packaged it into our new and compact PRO Series coil lines. These systems are designed for feeding coil directly into a blanking or stamping press, shear or laser cell.

The PRO Series is available in three sizes perfectly suited for Tier suppliers who are processing UHSS, AHSS and/or aluminum for applications such as inner body panels and stamped parts. The PRO name says it all — our PRO 40 processes coil up to 40″ wide, the PRO 60, up to 60″ wide and the PRO 80, up to 80″ wide.

Background

For the past few decades, Automatic Feed Company (AFCO) has primarily been recognized for providing automotive OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers with automated, high-speed blanking, cut-to-length and laser blanking lines for surface-critical applications. What may not be as well-known is that fact that for over 70 years, AFCO has also been supplying lines to the appliance, agriculture, truck and heavy construction industries, specializing in heavy gauge and high-strength steels.

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.
