Automatización de Prensas, S.L. manufactures electronic roll feeders for metal strip coils in the width range of 110-1500 mm. for maximum cross section of 3000 mm² , covering a wide range of solutions for sensitive materials and thicknesses under 1.0 mm and also for metal bands till 10 mm and including hi-strength steel bands.

Always offering many possibilities for the position control of standard feeders for single-step processes and also other options for special applications that requires multiple steps and the control of retractable tools or other accessories.


It also manufactures decoilers for vertical strip coils up to 15,000 kg and 1,500 mm of bandwidth over expandable mandrel.

Decoilers made in Modular construction that can be supplied with or without motor , with mechanical or hydraulic expansion, single or double mandrel, optional hold-down arm with or without motorized wheel drive controller, the possibility of coil car and other optional accessories.


The horizontal or palette decoilers made for LARA are the ideal solution for unwinding of coils of delicate and light materials of strip thicknesses up to 1.5 mm and widths up to 230 mm.

This machines allow complete unwinding of multiple coils stacked on one pallet improving the downtimes by minimal disruption of production .

There are some sizes for total weight capacity from 1,000 kg to 5,000 kg and coils up to 1.800 mm of diameter.


The roll straighteners cover a range of bandwidths from 200 to 1500 mm. and thickness from 0.1 to 12 mm. with a maximum cross-section of 4,500 mm² and adaptable according to the material to be processed: steel, stainless steel, high strength steel, electrical steel, aluminium, etc ....

LARA program covers just straightening units as well as combined units for straightening and feeding simultaneously including special engine and electronic control for the positioning of the strip directly to a press or to other machines.


The manufacturing program includes complete lines : two general settings the "long" traditional configuration (decoiler, straightener and feeder ), and the "compact or short" configuration for lines with just 2 machines. ( decoiler and straightener/feeder)

Compact lines for coils from 1,000 kg to 15,000 kg are designed to optimize floor space and are manufactured for bandwidths from 200 to 1500 mm and thicknesses up to 12 mm.


Automatización de Prensas, S.L. also manufactures other related equipment or special machines such as:

Precision levellers, aluminum embossing lines, cutting lines (slitting and cut to length), zigzag feeding lines, etc ...
