The Nuevo straightening can is applicable for various flexible tubes, such as copper tube, brass tube, aluminum tube or stainless steel tube. It is also applicable for automotive, plumbing, heating System, air conditioning system, and industrial piping.
The Straightening can is made of transparent polycarbonate and designed to be impact resistant while still being able to view the operation of multiple rollers when in use.
The roller chutes are made of polycarbonate in difference colors so as to distinguish straightening cans of various sizes. The plurality of roller chutes have impact resistance because they are made of polycarbonate so that a roller seat resists against pressure and does not deform, when the metal tube passes through the multiple rollers.
The rollers are made of aluminum alloy (T6061) and are anodized so as to avoid scratching the metal tube.
Steel ball bearing are accommodated in each roller and it is applicable for the tube of a diameter of 4mm (1/8”) to 16mm (5/8”). The greater the diameter of the tube is, the greater pull force is required. To avoid scratching the copper tube when the metal tube passes through the can, the ball bearing is closed to reduce resistance, hence the tube passes through the roller smoothly.
The curvature of the roller will be different for the diameter of each metal tube. Some of the products sold on the market are a roller of a specific curvature suitable for different sizes of metal tubes. But such a physical condition is not perfect for the roller. In order to ensure that the metal tube completely contact with the roller, we use a roller of specific curvature to match with the metaltube of each size to ensure that the metal tube tightly contacts with the roller, and the metal tube does not deform or is not scratched when passing through the roller.
