The Integration of Guiding & Straightening

by Marcus Paech WITELS-ALBERT GmbH

The straightening results of long products such as wire, tube, rope and strip depend on the design of the sub-processes upstream and downstream to the straightening processes. Guiding is an important sub-process and is carried out with the objective of supplying and discharging a process material to and from the straighteners without collision. Boundary conditions such as the cross-sectional geometry of the process material, the variety of geometries and the design of the straighteners determine whether guiding is required taking into account the zero line or guiding with a fixed bottom and/or back edge.
