The straighten machine has various features that make it the ideal machine to use for straightening applications. The machine has individual up and down controls for the top rolls. To ensure that the operator has full control of the machine, the console is portable. There is crowning for the bottom and top rolls. It is easy to operate and maintain it. The lubrication system is timed to make it more efficient. There are various models available to allow customers to pick the most ideal for their operations.
All the straightening rolls are crowned to offer compensation for deflection that results into smaller diameter of the rolls. To obtain the best straightening results, the distance between straightening rolls is reduced as much as possible. To ensure that the operations are economical the rolls are mounted on high grade bronze bearings, this results in a low power consumption and reduced cost of maintenance. The main components of the straighten machine are the machine body and the driving gears. The machine body is rigid and usually composed of welded steel plates. This makes it resistant to torsion and other forces involved in the straightening operation. The cylindrical rolls are designed to rotate in opposite directions. When the metal plate is placed to go through the cylinders, mechanical pressure is applied on it to overcome the bending. This causes the metal plate to appear on the other side straightened. The machine can also be used for other things such as straightening pipes, coils, meshes and steel rods.
