WIRE STRAIGHTENING & CUTTING

Quickly straighten and cut offcoil wire up to 300m (984ft) per minute.

HIGH-SPEED STRAIGHTENING & CUTTING

The Clifford OPTICUT Straighteners are designed for wire types SAE 1006 – SAE 1015 and can straighten and cut smooth or ribbed off-coil wire up to 300m (984ft) per minute.  All machines come with a 1‑year guarantee with spares available worldwide.

Like all Clifford machines, the Straightening line is modular in design and can be run with a single operator. Clifford can supply various straightening, collection and alignment options to suit your requirements and budget.

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

At Clifford, we strive to create reliable, customisable and cost-effective straightening and cutting solutions for all our customers.

HOW IT WORKS

The Clifford OPTICUT wire straightening & cutting machines are designed as stand alone lines for the high speed production of straightened and cut wire. These machines are robustly designed and are offered with a range of different payoff options (DIN or Motorised Rotating Platforms) to suit the presentation of the wire. The wire is driven by a series of feed wheels through the dual spinner assemblies and is cut to length in a high speed flying shear. The shear is designed to give a flush, square end cut at maximum operating speed. Gearing between the feed and spinner drives ensures constant straightening angle under all conditions to provide optimal straightness of the finished wires.

Cut length is programmed directly into the PLC, and measured using an Encoder measurement device which gives precise actual length finished components. Length is digitally programmed for very quick length setting and changeovers.

Straigtened and cut wires exit the runout and are dropped from the straightener in small bundles into the floor mounted collection unit, where they are end aligned by a pneumatically operated end plate.
