Note! Most Straighteners are designed to remove the coil set in one direction or the other depending on if the strip is paid off from the top or bottom of the coil. This also means they don’t have the capability to handle reverse wound coil set. All ASME Straighteners are designed to remove coil set in both directions including reverse wound coils as a standard feature.
