In the steel mill process this unit is called a looper. The unit helps keeps tension on a red hot bar in the steel making process.
How it Works:
Entry and exit rolls guide the bar while a persuader roll lifts and puts tension on the bar. Water sprays on the unit to keep rolls and equipment cool.
- Water spray system.
- Air oil system to keep rolls and bearing lubricated.
- Adjustable cradles to help with roll setting and maintenance.
Precision Metal Group was awarded the work by One Steel, keeping it local, and was tasked to work alongside One Steel to help simplify and develop a prototype, followed by 12 new units.
