Forstner POWER STRAIGHT PRO

Fortner Compact Pro
INTUITIVE CONTROL

F3 – Control

The F3 – Control has a variable speed setting and 20 programm lines. The operator can program the material, the length, the straightening setting and the number of parts to be cut. Due to the motorised raising and lowering of the slitting blades, there is no waste at the end of the job.
All drives, motors and encoders are from the reliable Siemens brand. Simple icon display makes operation easy for all languages.
Another feature of the F3 – Control of the POWER STRAIGHT PRO is the fully automatic straightening. The operator specifies the straightening value in the material table, the remaining calculation and control of the straightening shafts is done by the control system.

Straightening Rollers

Straightening Rollers

The POWER STRAIGHT PRO has 6 manual straightening rollers to remove coil set and give customers flat material every time. The rollers are made of polished steel with a 110 mm diameter. The pressure of the straightening rolls is set by locking handles with reference scale.

For more demanding applications, the POWER STRAIGHT PRO can be equipped with 6 hard chromium-plated 110 mm straightening rollers, which ensure rust-free operation and longer service life.

The Forstner POWER STRAIGHT PRO is the heavy duty version of the STRAIGHT PRO. Even more massive straightening shafts guarantee a perfect straightening result even with thicker sheets. The straightening unit with its six straightening shafts can be easily adjusted and guarantees flat blanks for further production independent of material type.

The most important advantages:

  • Very robust construction.
  • 6 straightening rollers with automatic adjustment.
  • Perfect straightening results.
  • Easy to operate machine.

The infeed guide roller are angled to match the loop of the coil from a decoiler. This helps prevent creasing on soft materials like copper, aluminum and zinc. Another helpful feature is guiding the coil into the infeed guides. Between the slitter and shear are roller guides to ensure the material guides into the shear without curling up.

The table guide has four roller bearings (two on each side) to guide the metal in the pinch rolls. The roller bearings allow the metal to move easily forward and backwards without damaging the edges. This also keeps the material straight as the material is fed into the machine helping to ensure a square cut.

The Guillotine shear will be the perfect solution for customer that are looking for a fast and smooth cutting process. The shear utilizes a high carbon blade for long lasting cuts, up to 2.0 mm Mild Steel (400N/mm²). The enforced shear frame ensures a smooth shearing motion.

The film applicator can basically be mounted on any table. Using the deflection rollers and the fully rubberized feed rollers, the protective film is pressed on almost bubble and wrinkle-free. The device type F-AG z2mo has an additional arm with tension spring for tensioning the film during the return movement. This design is only applicable for single decoiling systems.

The coil guide is an important component for the function and accuracy of every system. The table has a fixed and a manually adjustable coil guide with ball bearings. The adjustment of the movable coil guide is done by a hand wheel. This specific table has rollers integrated in the table to ensure a smooth surface.

For more demanding applications and a longer life span we recommend the hard chromed shafts on the straightener.

The manual coilselector is a very cost-effective solution for quick and easy manual sheet metal changes. Up to eight coils are fixed in the manual coilselector. The desired sheet metal is manually pushed into the downstream machine via a handwheel.
