Pull-Roll / S-Loop Material Guidance

Pull Roll S-loop

In applications where a straightener or leveler is not needed in the process, a pull-roll S-Loop guidance is an inexpensive option to pull material from a decoiler and provide stable loop control.

The pull-roll / S-Loop material guidance system provides the same loop stability as the standard S-Loop material guidance system, but adds a pull-roll at the entry side of the S-Loop to allow the system to pull material off the decoiler. The system is not limited to stamping applications. Pull-roll S-Loops are also used in cut-to-length and roll-forming applications.
