The RKO VK Roller Cross model is a small rugged guide in our line for use primarily in solid wire applications. It is built in the German tradition of high quality and readily available with attractive pricing.
This guide suits a wide variety of applications. One popular use is before reaching wire forming and spring making machines.
This high quality and robust design is suited for material diameters from nearly 0mm to 8mm OD in three different sizes. On a custom basis, larger units can be supplied. This model also has slotted holes for one roll in each plane allowing repositioning of the roll to vary the opening between rolls for more precise guiding.
The RKO VK is most commonly used in solid wire applications but also can be used for tubing, cable and other materials with consideration given for size and roll materials.
We use the highest quality roller bearings and hardened steel 62HRC roll sleeves as standard. We offer a number of other roll type possibilities for specific applications to tailor to unique demands including sleeves in different materials like stainless steel, PET plastic and chrome plated steel. This unit also can be customized to suit unique applications on request.
