Computer aided setting and management
CASAM provides very accurate roll positioning and ensures that each operator sets the machine with recorded, known-to-work roll positions. Tube quality is maintained from batch to batch due to using proper roll positions. Small batch production with many size changes per shift is now viable.
The majority of 6-roll and 10-roll tube straightening machines are now shipped equipped with CASAM. After two decades of careful honing, the CASAM system is the most highly developed and user friendly system available. It is available on all Turner tube, bar and roller section straightening machines.
plc & hmi operator control
The majority of 6-roll and 10-roll tube straightening machines are now shipped equipped with PLC/HMI Controls. Each system is carefully tested during the building process to ensure a trouble free installation. While on-site during installation, the PLC code can be modified to suit the customers requests to provide the customer with a system that performs to their changing needs. Along with incorporating PLC/HMI control on new machine builds, Turner Machine also provides service on all of the machines equipped with PLC/HMI controls.
entry and exit handling equipment
At Turner, we have extensive archives detailing many different handling equipment schemes which have been used successfully for decades. Maybe it is a simple low speed off-line application that needs equipping or an ultra high speed line that feeds tubes into an in-line facility which straightens at 200MPM / 600FPM. Turner has the designs and the expertise to customize and fit to the customer's precise needs.
Be assured that we can provide the best entry and exit handling equipment to straighten a diverse range of products.
core exchange straightening heads
Turner offers a "rebuild back to as new" service and usually need machines in our Salem facility for about 8 weeks. Unfortunately, for many users, that down time prevents having the machine factory rebuilt. To address this problem, Turner operates a straightening head core exchange program.
The straightening head comprises that portion of the machine containing the rolls and all roll adjustment mechanisms. The supplied factory re-manufactured straightening heads are "as new," include all the modern revisions such as digital roll position indicators, and come with a 12 month warranty. The core exchange straightening head can usually be installed in a few hours with minimum downtime for the user.
These machines feature the latest Turner refinements to add the CASAM system. With CASAM, these normally hard-to-set machines become user friendly and can be set quickly by a trained operator. State of the art electrical control packages further bring these excellent machines into the modern era of automated machinery.
The machines are complimented by a wide range of section handling equipment that can be customized to suit customers' needs. The majority of metal sections--square, rectangular, hexagon, solid, or tubular--can be straightened with an appropriate machine model.
rolls and spare parts
New rolls for the majority of applications are manufactured from tool steel, then hardened and ground to computer generated and optimized profiles. We also manufacture rolls in tungsten carbide for straightening hard and abrasive alloys when the customer can justify the much higher cost.
When using a Bronx, Sutton, or other older machine, we reverse engineer and manufacture rolls that will perform better than the OEM equivalent.
We also have all the drawings for every machine made by Wyko Equipments Ltd., England. No matter whether the machine was built by Mackintosh-Hemphill, Wyko, or Turner, we can supply the required part.
