KB46: Ability to straighten

Category: Straightening Process | Updated: 6/4/2007 3:12:36 PM | Owner: The Professor | Read: 2756 (Last: 9/22/2014 3:44:12 PM)

Resolution

The question often arises whether a given straightener has the ability to correct a particular coil set condition in a given material. The readiest answer is to see whether the straightener will overstraighten such a condition. If so, it can be adjusted to straighten. Naturally material must be within the rated capacity of the machine, and test adjustments should be made gradually up to the point of overstraightening to determine whether undue strain is being placed on equipment.
