Compact Feed Lines Deliver Big Benefits

Traditional feed lines require a lot of space that can be put to better use on today’s plant floor. As companies strive to wring the most value out of their factory space, they look for new solutions that can deliver the same or better feeding and straightening capabilities yet occupy a smaller footprint.

Enter compact feed lines. Taking up three to four times less space than a tradition feed, or tandem, line, space-saving straightener-feeders provide important advantages. They can deliver economic efficiency, a smaller footprint, high accuracy and unparalleled performance.

The smaller footprint offers several benefits. In some cases, a compact feed line can pay for itself in the amount of floor space it conserves. It can also create enough space to allow the installment of additional equipment, expanding the factory’s production capacity.

While some compact feed lines present disadvantages like camber, our long history with space-saving straightener-feeders ensures you get the best of all possible worlds. ORII first began building feed equipment in 1961 in Japan and delivered the first Space-Saver line in 1979. Along the way we, developed technologies to solve issues and overcome disadvantages, setting us apart from other manufacturers.

Our compact straightener-feeders offer important features like an auto straightening function and auto coil loading system. These features save set-up time, improve operator safety and boost productivity. ORII equipment also is constructed much heavier than competitors’ models, providing built-in durability and reliability.
