An advanced system for
straightening and/or stretching wire.
Built to European norms, rebar, requiring percentage
stretching (elongation) led to one of the latest
developments by COMETO for the treatment of warm
formed rebar having diameters from 6 to 14mm.
With the technology developed by Cometo, percentage
precision elongation is set in advance/predetrmined
and can be modified during operation. The ESM
straightener can store up to 100 recipes which
includes the positioning of each roller, percentage
wire stretching and related tolerance. Each function
can be modified during operation and automatically
stored in the program in use.
During rebar processing (stretching/elongation),
the rod is continuously monitored by two speed
measurement devices (sensors), both in the input
and output phases. Any variation in the percentage
of elongation causes the measuring devices’
(sensors) to correct the roller by re-establishing
the set percentage.
Rollers are driven by high-powered gear motors
(step motors) which ensure the best precision
