COE's new "Clam Shell" straightener features an easy head lift function that allows for maintenance and cleaning. It will reduce downtime for Wellman as compared to the older unit, which required disassembly of the straightener head to clean the rolls. With the "Clam Shell" straightener, the top rollers separate from the bottom rollers to provide easy access to the straightening rolls for inspection and cleaning. Pushbutton controls are used to activate hydraulic cylinders that raise the head containing the top rolls. The CPPS-406 model features 4.0" diameter straightening rolls and 6.3" diameter pinch rolls. The "Clam Shell" concept is applicable to any size COE straightener.
Other features provided as standard with this COE straightener include a Nine-Roll Straightener head for effective straightening of high yield strength material, COE's unique "Alligator" Peeler for effective dekinking and threading operations, and independently adjusted Powered Coil Guides for effective coil loading and guiding. Other options provided for the Wellman application include COE's "LoopMaster" laser loop control, a non-marking chrome roll package, single row straightener backup rollers, self-centering hand crank entrance edge guides, and a Trabon Automatic Lubrication system.
