KB82: Cascade supports

Resolution

Very often, in long feed length operations, there is so much material in the looping area that its very weight tends to redistort it after straightening. Simple cascade type supports positioned at the exit of the straightener and entrance of the feed can avoid this problem. They can be of sheet metal, or if abrasion is to be avoided a series of idler rolls. In either case, they should take a radium at least 360 times metal thickness. One metal stamper took a long length of the heaviest gauge he was going to run, let it take its natural drop to the floor, welded it to straightener and feed and achieved full stock support and the perfect looping distance at the same time.
