Location of Nuts
- Top tie-rod/stud nuts on bearing caps on leveler end frames
Benefits of Hydraulic Lock-up
- Quick, positive lock-up and release with controlled pre-stress of tie-rods to overcome separating forces during plate leveling
- Net benefit: faster bearing and roll change-out times without cranes, heavy wrenches and tooling to tighten or loosen mechanical nuts
Type of nuts: Block Nuts (custom designed).
