The 1000-series guide, version FR and FRS is the MorgÄrdshammar monoblock type of entry roller guides for precise guiding in roughing and intermediate mills. The FR/FRS guide replaces traditional static guide. The design ensures high surface quality on the rolled stock.

The design is compact, simple and heavy duty. The loss of barrel length is kept to a minimum. The operation is simple and reliable.

The 1000-series is available in several different sizes. All sizes can be supplied as FR/FRS version.

FR is equipped with independent roller centre distance regulation.

FRS is equipped with single point adjustment for roller centre distance regulation which allows fast "on-line" regulation.

The guide comprises a pair of roller holders, held together by threaded rods. Distance pieces are mounted between the roller holders. The spacers are made to suit the section to be rolled. This means that one guide can cover a large number off sections by changing the distance spacers only.

Interchangeable wear plates are mounted on the inside of the roller holders and on the top and bottom spacer. The plates protect the inside of the guide itself from wearing.
