Oct 2008 - Turner 900 Series Straightening Head Core Exchange Program
The 900 series of Turner / Mackintosh Hemphill Rotary Tube Straightening machines were first introduced in the early 1960’s.
There are now many hundreds of 900 series straighteners in regular production and when maintained in good condition give very acceptable results to many tube producers.
The 900 series machines are very robust and modern versions, some with CASAM computer control, are manufactured in good numbers each year.
Turner do offer a “rebuild back to as new” service and usually needs the machine in our Salem, facilities for about 8 weeks. But for many the machine downtime prevents factory rebuilding.
To address this problem Turner are now operating a “straightening head” core exchange program.
The “straightening head” comprises that portion of the machine containing the rolls and roll adjustment mechanisms. The supplied factory re-manufactured straightening head is “as new” and includes all the modern revisions such as digital roll position indicators. Essentially the factory re-manufactured heads are fitted with all new rolls, bearings, wearing parts and all new roll adjustment devices.
The re-manufactured straightening heads are built to “as new” limits and come with a 12 months warranty.
