the unwind stand.
Lift out device
Stretcher Rolls: Rolls secure, stretch, guide and apply tension to the metal thru
Entry rolls adjust up and down on operators side
3 Nip rolls hold tension against the stretching rolls
Transport rolls feed metal thru the slitter rolls, hold tension
and adjust the wrap angle of the metal in the slitter;
Rolls 3,4,6, and 8 are independently driven.
Transports 1 and 2 drive 7 rolls each, control tension,
5 and 7 drive 2 rolls each, control tension.
3 Stretch rolls stretch and harden the metal through the slitter.

Stretcher rolls have incrementally smaller sizes as the metal
progresses downstream; 3 graduated sizes for 1%, 2% or 3% stretch.
Configured largest to smallest.
2 Clamping rolls prevent metal from springing back into zone 2,
2 Exit rolls; one at each rewind
3 Contact measuring rolls use load cells to take pressure reading
for tension calculations and absorb shock and supply backup force
at the rewinds.
1 at the entry to zone 2, has 2 load cells; 1 at each rewind,
pneumatically powered compensating rolls on dancer system.
Texturing Roller Unit: To apply light coating of lubricating oil to heavy gauge
