KB47: Recording roll settings

Category: Straightening Process | Updated: 6/4/2007 3:13:28 PM | Owner: The Professor | Read: 2569 (Last: 10/24/2014 8:10:14 AM)

Resolution

Most coil stock straighteners have calibrations to determine roll settings for a particular material. There is an absolutely infinite variety of settings for particular models and materials, so no one can specifically advise proper settings. Initially, it is a trial and error experience, but once proper straightness is obtained for a particular material in a particular straightener the calibrations should be recorded and filed with the die or job sheet, never to have to be experimented with again.
