Wire Straightening and Cutting Machines

Two types of wire straightening and cutting machines are offered:
  • Roll feed type, where pairs of drive rollers are used to transport the wire through the straightening unit which could be spinner or roller type.
  • Cam feed type, where reciprocating grippers pull the wire through the straightening unit which could be spinner or roller type.
The choice between the two types is dependant on production throughput required, the minimum cut length, and the required cut length accuracy. Consideration must also be given to the straightening unit size and type, material properties and diameter. Please consult the Thompson and Hudson team for advice on product selection for your specific application.
