TENNSMlTH's SR48P powered slip roll combines all 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 x 48 inches. Drive power is supplied by a heavy-duty,
industrial quality gear reduction motor and roller chain directly to the gear
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. Electrical and operator safety features include a full-length front and back wire cable safety mechanism which instantly stops the rolls when tripped, two magnetic motor starters, fully enclosed electrical box with pilot light, insulated reinforced conduit for all wiring and fully enclosed drive train.
The rolls are turned, ground and polished, high carbon steel, providing rigidity and resistance to wear and abrasion. The rolls and gears are mounted in hardened bronze bushings for long life and precision operation. All three rolls are gear driven to ensure even starting and feeding of capacity materials. Convenient operating features include large roll adjusting screws, scales for speeding repeat set-up, a wide clearance top roll latch and an end-mounted handle to lift the upper roll for easy material removal. Wire grooves and three full-length starting grooves in the rear roll are standard.
