Straightening machine is a device used to straighten metal strips. It is a very important piece of equipment in the manufacturing of many products, especially pipes and tubes. The straightening machine consists of two sets of rollers that alternately stretch and compress the material in order to make it flat. The pressure exerted on the material during this process is enough to push it past its yield point, thereby removing a significant amount of the internal stresses that are present in the tube or pipe.
There are many different types of straightening machines available in the market. They vary in size, shape, and ability to handle different metals. Some are even used to make curved shapes like circles or arcs. However, there are some important factors that must be taken into consideration when choosing the right straightening machine for a specific job. The first factor is the maximum width that the straightener can handle. The second is the range of material thickness that the straightener can handle. A third important factor is the type of straightening that the straightener is designed to do. There are two main types of straightening machines – powered and non-powered. Powered straighteners tend to be much larger than their non-powered counterparts, and they can have a variety of different features that are intended to improve the quality of the finished product.
Depending on the application, some of these features may include the ability to control the amount of stretch in the material. This is accomplished by using a programmable controller that monitors the amount of deformation and adjusts the feed rate accordingly. The controller can also detect and correct errors that occur during the straightening process. This is very helpful in ensuring that the material is fed through the straightener correctly and that it has the necessary amount of stretch.
Another feature that can be found on some straighteners is the ability to adjust the depth of penetration of the work rollers. This is important because excessive penetration can damage the work surface of the rollers and cause bending of the material that could affect the accuracy of the straightening process. It is important to avoid this by adjusting the work roller depth to the minimum required level.
There are several ways to straighten metal, but most of them involve a large amount of force and heat. This can be dangerous to the health of the workers and damage the material. One alternative is to use a straightening machine that uses a high-speed conveyor system and low temperatures to reduce the amount of damage to the material. This system can also be more accurate than manual or mechanical systems.
