Tennsmith's slip rolls combine precision-turned, ground and polished high carbon steel rolls with heavy-duty, cast iron end frames and a welded steel base to make an accurate and durable forming tool. Convenient operating features include large roll adjusting screws, scales for speeding repeat set-up, and a front-mounted handle to lift the upper roll for material removal. Wire grooves are standard.
Tennsmith's initial pinch slip rolls are heavy-duty, affordable, production tools for forming curved parts and tubes.
Tennsmith's SR48P powered slip roll combines all of the features of our SR48 initial pinch roll with the productive advantage of electric-powered drive for production forming of curved parts and tubes made of 16-gauge and lighter sheet metal.
Drive power for the SR48P is supplied by a heavy-duty, industrial quality gear reduction motor and roller chain directly to the gear train. The roll drive is controlled by a toggle action, shrouded foot pedal for instant forward and reverse action. The drive motor is equipped with an electromagnetic brake to prevent roll creep and over-forming.
