Forstner STRAIGHT

Forstner STRAIGHT PRO cut to length
INTUITIVE CONTROL

S1 – Control

The SPS-S1 Control touch screen with intuitive features, that allow you to en-ter different quantities and lengths. The control uses the Electronic Eye to automatically set the zero point on square material. The control features a “material savings” mode which automatically stops the machine, raise the slitting knives automatically and then moves forward to cut the piece to length, while leaving a clean edge. An optional radio remote can be purchased when adding later on a powered decoiler or recoiler, so the operator has everything under control.

6 Straightening Rollers

6 Straightening rollers

With the 6-roller straightener you can create mark-free, flat sheets. The upper straightening rollers are automatically positioned in front of the sheet and open before standstill to avoid stopping marks.

The straightener has a motor and one pair of infeed rollers, 6 straightening shafts . 110 mm and one pair of out-feed rollers . 70 mm. The upper straightening shafts are also programmable.

The Forstner STRAIGHT is characterized by highly efficient cutting of coils. The machine works with double infeed rollers, which simplifies feeding and makes exchanging sheets faster. An easy-to-adjust straightening unit with six rollers produces flat blanks for further production regardless of the type of material.

The most important advantages:

  • Compact design.
  • 6 straightening rollers with easy adjustment.
  • High feed rates.
  • 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 Compact series 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 70mm diameter. The pressure of the straightening rolls is set by locking handles with reference scale.

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. Film applicator available in both 1250 and 1500 mm.

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. Table with roller guide available in both 1250 and 1500 mm.

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

Choose from a simple cradle up to motorized versions. Read more under respectively product.

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.

Do you often cut stainless steel sheets? Then your new machine should definitely be equipped with the
higher-quality knives for stainless steel. The life of the blades is increased and you achieve perfect cuts over a long time. Ask your sales consultant if your application requires knives for stainless steel machining.

With this recoiler, slits or wide strips can be easily recoiled. The coils are wound tightly to a diameter of 508 mm and an optically clean coil is produced after wrapping and removal. The recoiler has a dancer arm, separating discs, a pneumatic felt brake, a motor and a hydraulic mandrel.
