Wire straightening is a vital part of the manufacturing process. It is a relatively simple procedure that involves bending the wire along grooved rolls. Sjogren’s complete in-house engineering and machining capabilities allow us to create customized, precision grooved rolls that are compatible with any assembly. Our design innovations reduce work interruptions, lower replacement costs, reduce marking and other quality control concerns, and offer greater performance durability. Our grooved straightener rolls are compatible with any manufacturer’s assembly.
As a leader in the groove roll market, we’ve introduced a Preventative Maintenance Program for straighteners and groove rolls designed to keep product lines running and minimize downtime, all while increasing productivity and profits. Sjogren has put together a recommended maintenance schedule based on the type, material, and usage of each of its clients’ particular rolls. Machined to exact specifications and featuring our alignment marker, our grooved rolls assure the assembly maintains a precise wire centerline.
The Sjogren alignment marker accounts for variations in bearing width, and makes it easy for the operator to identify the correct way to mount replacement rollers to maintain tolerances. Specialty roller materials are available if you are working with soft or precious metals or specially coated wire. If your application calls for custom shaped wire, we can machine custom shaped grooves to match your specifications, even for small orders.
