The MCS-1 mineral insulated (MI) cable straightener is designed to straighten all types of mineral insulated cable (thermocouple, RTD, etc.) up to 8mm diameter.
Straightening is achieved by passing the cable through fixed bushes and a central rotating yoke. The unit is supplied with hard-wearing PTFE bushes for 3.0, 4.5, and 6.0mm diameter MI cables. Other size bushes are available. Changing size bushes to suit cable size takes only a few minutes.
The central rotating yoke is positioned behind a clear inspection window. The operator is protected from injury from rotating machinery by a safety interlock…the unit can only be operated when the inspection window is closed.
Cable is straightened by simply pressing the ‘ON’ button and pulling the MI cable through with the minimum of effort. The machine may be stopped or re-started at any time during straightening. The machine will stop if the inspection window is opened.
