Loop bridge

The installation of a loop bridge between the straightening and the electronically controlled roller feeding device is required when processing strips of larger sizes. Loop bridges ensure the sagless transport of the strip between the outlet of the straightening machine and the inlet of the roller feeding device.

 

In the event the strip lead jams in the electronically controlled roller feeding device, the bridge is either lowered down to floor level or to a certain level above or below with the consequence that a loop is being formed that provides enough material for the uninterrupted continuation of the processing procedure.
