WNS SHRINKER/STRETCHER (SS25H) can accommodate mild steel sheet up to 1.2mm thick. It is hand operated and complete with quick changing jaws. Shrinker/Stretchers are used to create smooth radius curves in sheet metal, without cutting, welding, heating or hammering. The Shrinker contracts the metal for inside curves and the Stretcher expands the metal for outside curves. These machines are predominantly used on body panels for cars and aeroplanes, however, are also utilised in many other areas to fabricate or repair metal work where the combination of a curve and an angle is required.
