This video shows how we do a setup for one of our straighten and cut (S&C) machines. This particular machine is one of our medium to large machines and can S&C wire from .240” – .150” in diameter, from 4” to 30’ in length. We pass the wire from a large coil thru some drive pulleys and into a rotary arbor which rotates and straightens the wire. There are a lot of adjustments that are required on this arbor and technical expertise and experience are very important. In this particular case, we are S&C .219 Music Wire, 12’. The Technician cuts the first piece, or first article and checks it for straightness. Based on this first piece, the Technician may make additional adjustments. For more information, visit
