Hess Industries designs, engineers, and manufactures part-straightening solutions. Suitable for cylindrical or flat parts, the machinery can accommodate unusual straightening requirements, including long, large diameter, and tubular parts. Used for a variety of applications, including crankshafts, camshafts, steering racks, pinions, axles, and drives­hafts, straightening removes distortions induced by heat-treating and manufacturing processes. In the case of machined components, the primary objective of straightening is to decrease the amount of material removal required during the finishing process, which decreases machining and grinding time. For assembled components, such as driveshafts, straightening removes excessive run-outs, which enhances final product performance.
