TENNSMITH slip rolls combine precision-turned, ground and polished high carbon steel rolls with heavy-duty, cast iron end frames and a welded steel base to make an accurate and durable forming tool. Convenient operating features include large roll adjusting screws, scales for speeding repeat set-up, and a front-mounted handle to lift the upper roll for material removal. Wire grooves are standard.
TENNSMITH initial pinch slip rolls are heavy-duty, affordable, production tools for forming curved parts and tubes. Models SR48, SR324, SR336 and SR342 rolls have three gear-driven roll drives that ensure even starting and feeding of capacity materials. These same models also feature constant drive of the rolls. All three rolls continue to drive throughout their adjustment range.
The SR48 gearing features a 4:1 reduction ratio for ease of operation of heavy materials. All gears are fully enclosed for safety and protection from the elements.
