Tangential roller driver
Tangential roller drivers feed the tubes or rods to a machine while setting them in rotation. This type of infeed is suitable for straightening machines, test systems and forming machines of all kinds.
The tangential roller driver can be designed with either horizontal or vertical drive rollers, depending on the available space or customer requirements. The driving rollers are inclined to set the product in rotation. The angle of the driving rollers can be set manually or by a higher-level control depending on the product. The driving rollers are each driven by a servomotor, which is connected by a drive shaft to the driving roller. This helps to ensure synchronisation between the driver and the following machine, for example a straightening machine. The design of the driver is always adapted to the customer's requirements.
