Round wire can be rolled to flat within limits.
Round wire can be rolled to a maximum of 0.97 x 0.65 mm or,088 x 050 mm in the
HEKL III / 60, and to a maximum of 1.27 x 0.50 mm in the HEKL III / 80.
If greater flat wire dimensions are required, then finish-rolled wire must be fed into the machine.
The rolls also feed the wire into the machine. Feed length 5 controlled by an adjustable crank and free wheeling clutches. All operating motions of the machines are controlled by positive barrel and face cams, so that smooth operation is guaranteed even at high operating speeds.
For maximum tool life and wear resistance, all critical areas either have carbide inserts or are made of high grade chromium steel. All types of points can be turned out on the machines by simply installing the appropriate cutting tools. With the replacement of complete sets of tools, other types of staples may be produced. This 5 only necessary, however, when there is a change in crown width.
Special types of staples can be made with the aid of special accessories. An infinitely variable drive provides for maximum operating speeds for each staple size. The heating capacity of the drying zone is also infinitely variable. The machines require a minimum of maintenance and virtually no supervision, so that one person can easily run several machines at the same time.
