Straighteners are machines that can be found at workshops and industrial plants alike, and their main task is to straighten and, usually, cut fed ribbed wire. The process may be performed manually or in manually controlled automated machines. According to a basic classification, these machines are divided into roller, rotor, and rotor with hyperbolic rollers straighteners.
In industrial conditions, professional modern straighteners use computer process control. This ensures very good results through digital control of speed between a straightening rotor and a drive. This is especially noticeable when particularly difficult, hard and brittle materials are straightened. Straighteners are machines usually offered in various configurations, so an appropriate machine with accessories that will be used at production in the most optimum way, can be selected.
