Fixed-Frame-Straightening-Press

For straightening larger shafts, Savage offers the FFS Straightening Press. Roller stands permit crane loading and workpiece positioning under a fixed ram.

Savage’s model FFS Fixed Frame Straightening Press is an economical alternative to a traveling gantry press for straightening moderate-weight shafts, tubes, and round bars. In operation, the workpiece is loaded onto rollers on an extension table to allow dial indication. The moving lift/rotation stands allow bars weighing up to one thousand pounds to be easily rolled into straightening position under the ram. V-Block Anvils steady the workpiece, allowing for maximum precision during straightening.

The workpiece must be manually positioned under the ram, by moving it across the rollers. This provides an economical method of positioning heavy workpieces. Lift cylinders are available in the press bed to raise the workpiece for positioning of the press anvils.

The 100-ton model (left, top) and 300-ton model (left, bottom) both feature a complete Fixed Frame Straightening Accessories Package (left, bottom).

Hybrid-Straightening-Press

For straightening larger shafts, Savage offers the Hybrid Straightening Press. Roller stands permit crane loading and workpiece positioning under a fixed ram.

Our Hybrid Straightening Press is a fixed frame press with powered accessories for straightening heavy shafts, tubes, and round bars. It enhances the straightening process with traveling gantry-style powered accessories on the bed, but goes further still with a powered bar feed. In operation, the workpiece is loaded onto rollers on the extension table. Even bars weighing thousands of
pounds can easily be positioned under the ram via the powered rollers.

The powered rollers allow the operator to position the workpiece under the ram, providing an efficient and economical method for positioning heavy workpieces. Lift cylinders are available in the press bed to raise the workpiece for positioning of the press anvils.

The 1800 ton model (left, top) was built for Patriot Forge, complete with Hybrid Straightening Accessories Package (left, bottom).
