MBMHS have been in the forefront in the development
of automatic handling plants and the use of high quality pullers
has largey rendered the use of the de twist stretcher obsolete except
for the very heaviest sections. This has opened the way to fully
automatic stretcher operation.
The MBMHS 2000 range of ‘in line’ stretchers starts
at 15 tons upwards. These are intended for installation on presses
up to about 2500 ton capacity. They come in two frame sizes, the
small frame covering the range 15, 25 & 30 tons and the larger frame
for 40, 50 & 60 tons. These are almost identical in appearance.
stretchers are PLC controlled and operation can be controlled from
either or both ends. The PLC can be programmed to delivery a pre-determined
stretch, either as a percentage or as a fixed amount. Infeed belts
are fitted for ease of metal transfer.
