Abstract

Two sets of meshing disks with V-shaped peripheral notches are mounted on shafts and are rotated in opposite directions. The disks are so arranged and rotated in synchronism that the notches form a space substantially the size of the wire to be straightened.

Rotary, Continuous Wire Straightener

Two sets of meshing disks with V-shaped peripheral notches are mounted on shafts and are rotated in opposite directions. The disks are so arranged and rotated in synchronism that the notches form a space substantially the size of the wire to be straightened.

As the disks rotate the wire is dropped into the space between the notches. The wire is straightened when the space between the notches becomes equal to the diameter of the wire. As the disks continue to rotate the space between the notches enlarges and the straightened wire falls out.
