The new Americor hydraulic sheet and plate metal rolls cover standard capacities from 3 feet by 13 gauge to 10 feet by 5/16 inches. Thirty-one models in two types are available: three-roll single initial-pinch and four-roll double-pinch. Also available are two special four-roll double-pinch models with capacities of 2 feet by ¼ inches and 2 feet by 5/16 inches. According to the company, the sure-drive rolls rotation uses a drive system that allows rolling of thicknesses within the machine’s opening between top and lower driven roll without the use of belts or extra gear driving mechanisms. Other features include induction-hardened rolls, heavy-duty rigid frame, variable-pressure control for the lower adjustable-clamping roll, controls mounted in a rolling control console for operator convenience, digital readouts for rolls positions with preset and recall, enhanced electrical and hydraulic components.
