Narrow Bed Round Bar Straightening Press

For Round Bar, Flat Bar, and Tube Straightening

The Savage Narrow Bed Series Traveling Gantry Straightening Press features two (2) axes of ram movement (X & Y) and customized straightening accessories to create the perfect solution for straightening medium to large diameter round workpieces. Most commonly, these presses are used to straighten:

  • Shafting or round bars with larger diameters and long lengths
  • Tubing with heavy walls, large diameters, and long lengths

Applications

Traveling gantry straightening presses feature two axes of movement, purposefully designed for straightening round bars, pipes, and other tubular such as drills for onshore/offshore oil applications.

Components typically straightened on Savage Presses:

  • Downhole drills (rotors and stators)
  • Drill pipes / tubular
  • Liner hangers and drill collars
  • Pump shafts, motor shafts, axles
  • Titanium bars
  • Cannon barrels
  • Mud motors

The workpiece is crane-loaded onto pressing anvils, and the high spot is indicated. The gantry is then positioned over the high spot, and the Savage Ram Position Controller (RPC) limits the ram stroke to prevent over-bending. The Straightening Accessories lift, rotate and relocate to achieve the optimal straightening position for each high spot.
