Perfect grip

The task of plate stretchers is straightforward: gripping both ends of a long plate and pulling it to a specified length. Important here is that the pulling forces require a reliable and strong clamping system to distribute the clamping force evenly over the plate. Yet this must not cause deformations that could lead to cracking.

State-of-the-art plate stretchers from SMS meet both these requirements. This is why they are well known for providing a safe grip in any production process involving either weak or hard alloys. What’s more, there is no need to change clamping tools.
