KB52: Angular head straightener

Category: Straightening Process | Updated: 6/4/2007 3:16:05 PM | Owner: The Professor | Read: 2411 (Last: 11/27/2014 8:50:18 PM)

Resolution

If the available looping area is marginal, some relief can be ortained by having the straightener mounted in an angular head configuration. Such an approach starts the material down into its natural loop formation before exiting the straightener. It can also be advantageous in accepting the stock from a closely positioned reel or in a cradle combination.
