Straighten a Steel Plate
Place one edge of the steel plate in between the front pinch rolls of the power roller.
Adjust the front pinching roll of the power roll to the thickness of the steel plate by depressing the button that controls the height of the lower roll until it catches the steel plate. Do not over tighten the pinch rolls, as this will distort the metal plate.
Depress the control switch to lower the bending roll. The bending roll needs to be lower than the low pinch roll to ensure that you do not roll the steel plate.
Press the forward roll control button of the power roll to send the steel plate through the roll.
Lay the straight edge onto the steel plate after it has exited the power roll to check that the steel plate has straightened. If the steel plate is still deformed, remove the straight edge from the plate and proceed to Step 6.
Place the steel plate back into the front pinch rolls and press the button to slightly raise the rear-bending roll.
Repeat Step 4 and 5. Continue the process until the steel plate is straight. If you over roll the steel plate, flip the plate over, lower the rear-bending roll and run the steel plate back through the power roll.
