Successful straightener installation

Fives successfully installed and commissioned a new Bronx bar straightening machine for a leading steel producer in the USA.

The reputable special-bar quality producer required a new roll bar straightening machine to process hot rolled, heat treated high-yield carbon and medium alloy steels for its facility. 

Seamless integration

Fives supplied the new Bronx straightener, equipped with integrated ancillary electrical and hydraulic control equipment to process solid round bars up to 5 ½” diameter. 

“It was a challenge to integrate the new machine design from the original 30-year-old Bronx straightener into the existing civil works, all while considering a much greater load capacity, but given the great partnership and collaboration, we were able to achieve a successful result,” says Jon Dunn, President & Chief Executive Officer of Fives Bronx, Fives subsidiaries in the U.S. and U.K. specializing in mills and finishing equipment.

Utmost quality

Bronx straighteners offer excellent production rates as well as a long equipment lifespan. After a three-week installation and start-up window, the new machine has been operational for a few weeks and is performing to high production standards.

This partnership demonstrates Fives’ commitment to ensuring long-term quality and dedicated service for its customers.
