KB92: Edge guiding

Category: Miscellaneous Tips | Updated: 6/12/2007 8:27:02 AM | Owner: The Professor | Read: 2853 (Last: 10/29/2014 12:49:36 PM)

Resolution

Coil handling equipment utilizes a series of edge guides which are just that, guides not barriers. They are no substitute for proper alignment of equipment with your dies. Continual overrunning of guides points to an alignment problem. Do not strengthen the guides, correct the alignment. Overuse of edge guides will only introduce new problems such as stock with camber or scalloped edges, or damaged equipment.
