In various types of manufacturing equipment, it is necessary to supply the equipment with wire that is precisely straight. Typically, wire is manufactured and then reeled or coiled for ease of storage, shipment and handling. Coiled wires are ordinarily annealed slightly so that the wire retains its coiled shape. Wire straighteners have been provided for a variety of applications. Manual cable straighteners have the advantage of being comparatively simple in construction, but they require considerable strength to use, particularly on thick cable. Power operated cable straighteners have generally been large and mechanically complex. Advancements in wire straightening techniques and associated equipment has as the primary aim improvements in the physical and mechanical characteristics, and geometrical parameters of the wire products. A number of wire straighteners are known. These typically involve a bank of rollers which the wire passes through and which are oriented in one plane, followed by a second bank of rollers which act against the wire, and which are oriented in a second plane, perpendicular to the first.
