Custom Press Feed Lines Designed to Meet Your Needs.

Machine Concepts builds a wide range of press feed line equipment with a specific focus toward high speed, surface critical, tough to process materials and applications. 

Machine Concepts has a specific technical focus in shape correction of high yield strength materials with our precision straighteners and flatteners. Our precision straighteners eliminate coil shape defects that competitor’s straighteners cannot remove. Small diameter work rolls with supporting back-up rollers produce a flat strip, free of internal stress. 

In coordination with our automation group, Machine Concepts works directly with your development, engineering, and production teams to turn proof of concept process ideas into automated press processing lines. Our team will look for the most reliable and cost-effective solutions regardless of press manufacturer. Our job is to see you succeed. 

Upenders

Coil Upender Decoiler Load Position

Machine Concepts’ Coil Upenders serve as an efficient, user-friendly addition to any coil line. The Coil Upender allows an operator to load a coil on a pallet onto the loading deck before rotating the coil upright.  This machine increases line efficiency by enabling an operator to pre-stage coils while the decoiler is still running in line. In addition, the use of a Machine Concepts’ Coil Upender greatly reduces the chance of damaging the decoiler as a result of direct coil loading using other methods.

Coil Cars & Coil Stands

Coil Stand

Machine Concepts’ Coil Cars and Coil Stands are designed to improve coil line efficiency by creating a safe and quick coil loading system. Using a coil car or coil stand enables an operator to pre-stage coils while the decoiler is still running in line. Also the use of a Machine Concepts Coil Car or Coil Stand greatly reduces the chance of damaging the decoiler as a result of direct coil loading using other methods.

Precision Straighteners

Precision Straightener G2 Series

Precision straighteners eliminate coil shape defects that simple flatteners cannot remove. Small diameter work rolls with supporting back-up rollers produce a flat strip free of stress. Parts that need to be flat stay flat and round parts stay round. Learn more about our family of straighteners:

  • H2 & H2L Precision Straighteners
  • G2, G2 Plus & G2L Precision Straighteners

Electric Vehicle Precision Straighteners

EV Precision Straightener

The EV/L2 family of straighteners have been designed for lighter gauges (.008” to .039”) and normally higher speed applications (400 FPM). Features include easy removal of roll cassettes and interchangeable roll cassettes with different roll diameters within the same base frame. Several optional features.

Flatteners

Flattener

Machine Concepts’ Flatteners provide a cost-competitive option for removing coil set defects. Based on a similar structure to our precision straighteners, flatteners offer many of the same desirable features as the straighteners that many other manufacturers do not offer.
