605 Rim Drive Payoff

Progressive Machine Company's Rim Drive Payoffs are designed to provide a flexible unwinding system designed for the smooth pay-off of ferrous and non-ferrous metal strip or flatware. These units are commonly used for punch press and stamping operations.

The Model 605 Rim Drive Payoff allows spools to be rolled into the machine by use of the built in steel plate ramp. This enables the operator to load the spool for payoff without physically lifting the spool. A built in feature consisting of the chain drive between the gear reducer and drive roller will facilitate future speed changes as production speed may require.

Each of these units can operate with a number tension control options including the standard STC (counterbalance dancer), an articulated broken arm dancer for punch press operations, and a Telesensor, ultrasonic loop controller. These choices allow the rim drives to provide superior pay off performance at a low cost.
