IMPEC`s patented stub straightening machine is designed to straighten the stubs without transferring any force to the yoke during the straightening operation. No stress on the weld between the yoke and the stub during the straightening process. The IMPEC stub straightner can be used for all known anode hanger configurations, both 2,3 & 4 pins in line and 4 & 6 pin spiders. Maximum stub size: 190 mm diameter.
Some of the benifits with the IMPEC stub straightening machine; increased the lifetime of stubs as all stubs with toe-in will be straightened. Each stub is straightened individually based on information from the vision system (no toe-in=no straighteneng), low maintenece cost due to a simple and reliable system.Same machine is used for all the different stub diameters. Only the inserts have to be changed if the stub diameter is changed. It can be installed as a cold straightening machine or in combination with an induction heater.
