Shrinking and Stretching Machines
The purpose of the Shrinking & Stretching Machine is to shrink or stretch metal sheets, angles, flat bars, and plates by increasing or decreasing the length of metal in a localized area.
One of the most important functions is the forming and fitting of sections mentioned after they have passed through production dies of some type.
These machines take care of what is commonly termed in the sheet metal trade as “spring-back” and other deformities. Experimental, repair, small productions, and many shapes can be completely made eliminating costly expenditure of production dies.
