Vertical Plate Bending Rolls, 1890
Known as ‘pinch rolls’, these powerful rollers were used to shape the plates used to make boilers.
The forward roller could be lifted vertically by a crane and then shifted backwards in stages to increase the curvature of the boiler plate as it was slowly rolled back and forth between the rollers.
The machine was driven by a belt drive from an overhead line shaft.
