First of all this Airline Model RS5-72 Longitudinal Planisher is specifically designed for planishing longitudinal seams. Therefore, the part configuration can be anything that can fit over the mandrel arm. Part movement during planishing is powered by the upper roll. This planisher uses a hardened wheel and backing bar to flatten the weld bead. You get several benefits by applying high pressure to the welded seam. The first of these is a lower weld bead profile height this allows the material to pass through a sheet fed system easier without binding. In addition, the second benefit is planishing acts as a stress relieving process. This post weld stress relief makes the weld seam more ductile so that further bending and manipulation of the material can be done without the material fracturing at the seam. Another and the third benefit is that a planished weld seam is stronger than a seam that has had no post weld treatment. This Airline Model RS5-72 Planisher is just out of service and is ready to ship!
