Industrial propeller straightening presses are used to restore the original shape of a propeller after it has been warped by accident or by wear. The press is made up of several parts that work together to do this. The first part is the die, which is a shaped piece of metal that sits on the top of the press and causes the propeller to bend. The die is then pressed against a blade, which creates the desired curve in the propeller. After the die is pressed against the blade, another part called an arm moves in front of it and holds it in place while the blade cuts through the metal.
These presses can cause serious injuries if not used correctly. Straightening the blades using presses can accidentally cause limbs of the operator to bend and twist in an unnatural way. This causes fractures to the legs, spine, and arms. If you are injured while working with a propeller straightening press, contact an industrial injury lawyer. He or she can help you file a claim and get the compensation you deserve.
