Hands on

Manual straightening presses

The deformation of metal workpieces is an undesired, yet material inherent consequence of various metal working and refining processes. It requires a sophisticated straightening process to bring the parts back into their ideally designed shape so that these high-quality components can perfectly and durably fulfil their intended tasks.

MAE manual straightening presses offer a cost-effective concept, guaranteeing precise and sensitive processing of your workpieces. Measuring in one setting ensures high repeating accuracy and fast working even for less experienced operators.

General properties

Pressing forces from 160 to 20,000 kN
Workpiece lengths from 30 to 20,000 mm
Workpiece diameters from 3 to 900 mm
Unit weights from 5 grams to 20 tons
Straightening accuracy down to 0.01 mm

Automatically in shape

Automatic straightening machines

Are you straightening short or long parts, round or profiled? Are you looking for the right machine for your straightening process?
We have two concepts: our automatic straighteners of the M-AH and ASV series.

With these series, you straighten your workpieces efficiently and precisely down to 0.01 mm.

 General properties

  Pressing forces from 15 to 25,000 kN
  Workpiece lengths from 40 mm to 30 m
  Workpiece diameters from 2 to 800 mm      Unit weights from 5 grams to 20 tons          Straightening accuracy down to 0.01 mm
