Entry roller guide 1000-series
The 1000-series is Morgårdshammar´s latest developed
series of roller guides for guiding of various sections.
It has been developed with the experience from the very
successful and well known 900-series.
The series is available as Single pair Roller guide, SR,
and Double pair Roller guide, DR.
The 1000-series feature an identical patented central
setting arrangement as the 900-series guides. This
means that the guides are equipped with a single
point adjustment for setting the distance between
the rollers for both SR and DR versions. The
development on the setting device compared to the
900-series is that the cam is operated by means of
a worm gear. The arrangement guaranteeing an
absolute accurate setting of the guide rollers and in
addition it is self-locking. The design also allows the
possibility to adapt a remote control device.
Precise setting of precise guides calls
for precise setting tools. Morgårdshammar
have developed and can provide the
correct setting tools for all different needs
The 1000-series are available in several different
sizes both as SR and
DR type. The design is
however made in order to minimize the number
standardized parts to give the advantage of low
inventory for our customers. For example the entry
guide halves, rollers and inner roller holder common
for both SR and DR type of guide of the same size.
Also worm gear system is common for those
Morgårdshammar can supply some of the presented
guides in versions with wider body, recognised by an
additional letter added to its name, “B” “C” etc. Please
contact us for further details.
For arrangements where a DR-type of guide and
short distance between guide roller and mill roll is
crucial, Morgårdshammar have developed the
P-version guide. The roller arrangement of the front
pair of rollers is taken from the closest smaller type
of guide. The table later shows the guide with wider
body, “B”, but can be supplied in any version as a
standard DR-type of guide.
The 1000-series guides are designed with single
point symmetrical distance adjustment for quick,
precise and reliable setting of the guide.
point adjustment allows parallel setting of all four
rollers on a DR-type guide. Possibility for individual
setting of roller vertical position.
The setting is carried out by means of a standard
wrench or with remote control when it is installed.
The single point regulation system allows the
1000-series guide to be equipped with a remote
control system without any special changes of the
guide. The guide regulation is operated by a motor,
of any kind, equipped with an encoder via a flexible
shaft, as seen on the picture to the right.
