Stub Straightening Machine (SSM)

VHE´s stub straightening machines are designed to adjust and align the stubs in incremental steps. An automated measurement and sensing system are built into the hydraulics (cylinders movement), correcting the toe-in stepwise in each cycle. The SSM’s are in-line (usually) and can be either configured for cold straightening or in combination with an induction heating system.



Key features of VHE´s SSM:

  • Reliable in operation
  • Low maintenance costs
  • Incremental straightening steps, hence
    • Less risk of stressing welds between stubs and yoke
    • A consistent fleet of forks/yokes
    • Resulting in improved mating of anode and yoke assembly
  • Cold straightening up to Ø180mm stubs
