Straightening presses for tubes and round bars

Savage’s Travelling Gantry Straightening Press is the perfect solution for straightening drill stream tools, liner hangers, drill collars, heavy-weight tubes and round bars as well as down hole drills (rotors and stators) drill pipe and mud motors.

With travelling gantry straightening presses, the work piece remains stationary while the pressing ram traverses to the high spot. First, the work piece is loaded onto pressing anvils. Powered lift and rotation devices are employed to find the bend. The gantry is then traversed over the shaft, then energised against the high spot to straighten.

Savage’s Traveling Gantry Straightening Presses can also be used to straighten gear racks for offshore oil platform geared legs, large plates and weldments.

Straightening features include:

  • Travelling gantry
  • Traveling operator’s platform
  • Ram stroke control to 0.001in prevents over- bending of work piece
  • Joystick ram movement controls
  • Powered lift and rotation of work piece
