KB51: Dual-head straightening

Category: Straightening Process | Updated: 6/4/2007 3:15:25 PM | Owner: The Professor | Read: 2261 (Last: 4/23/2014 9:45:17 AM)

Resolution

Circular parts which may require straightening after stamping will generally require two passes through a straightener, one at 90 degrees to the other. This is because there is no means of orienting the direction of curvature to the direction of the rolls. If a high volume of such parts exist it may be worthwhile accomplishing the job in one pass by using a dual head parts straightener which indexes the part 90 degrees through two heads.
