Powered Precision Straighteners

(Smart, Tough, Proven)

No matter what your specifications are, Feed Lease Corp. has a straightener to handle your requirements. Our heavy duty construction is seen as one of the most "well engineered products in the Industry" ". We offer light to medium duty straighteners, Series MPS-150, 250, 350. We also offer our Heavy Duty models, the HDPS Series, that are engineered and built for the "Tough" jobs

The increased challenges of today's "Dual Phase" and other high yield materials have allowed us to utilize our enhanced technologies in straightening applications. Feed Lease Corporation's Heavy Duty HDPS straighteners are superior to anything our competition has to offer. Our HDPS-8.00 is the premier model and can handle the toughest of applications including materials of up to 965 Mpa (140 KSI) yield strength.

MPS Series

The MPS Series of power straighteners is designed to provide the straightening capabilities required for light to medium stamping applications. This series is typically matched with our Series RF-2.5 and RF-3 servo roll feeds. Systems are typically set up to pull material off from 1,500lb. - 20,000lb. coil reels. The straighteners include precision ground side plates and tie-bars. The straightener can include (7, 9 or 11) straightening rolls, depending on the application. The straighteners include independent adjustment of the upper straightening rolls with true tonnage adjustment. This design allows up to 1.00” of roll penetration past tangent for greater flatness capabilities and an AC variable speed direct drive which makes this series of straighteners a great value in the market.

EZZE-Clean

"There has got to be a better way!" This exclamation is sure to have been heard over and over again in many a stamping plant. Why the frustration? Because trying to clean metal chips, paint, etc. from the rolls of a conventional powered straightener is a slow and cumbersome project that chews away at productions uptime. "There has got to be a better way!" Well, now there is. Feed Lease now offers a pivoting straightener head opening for quick and effective straightener roll cleaning. Pivoting the head open with the upper rolls lifting in a way similar to that of the opening of an alligator’s mouth, these "Alligator" head straighteners provide a vastly improved way of cleaning the rolls of a powered straightener.

The "Safe" mode ensures operator safety during opening/closing, jog, and cleaning. Hydraulic cylinders provide power and control for open/close.
