What You Need to Know About Straightener Feeders
The straightener feeder is one of the most important parts of the manufacturing procedure, hence it’s important to always have it running smoothly and effectively. Many of the distributors offer a one year warranty on parts and labor, plus free installation and service. Even before that, they’ll come to your place to install the equipment to make sure it’s installed properly. It’s important that the products you purchase from the distributors you buy from, has been tested and certified safe for home use. Never settle for less.
When the straightener feeder arrives, the first thing you’ll notice is how sturdy and heavy it is. It is almost like trying to lift a huge steel tank on your own back! However, this shouldn’t be a problem as these machines can usually take a lot of punishment before they finally give in and break. It should be mentioned though, that the older the machine, the more likely it will break down. This makes it extremely important that you purchase a new straightener from a trusted distributor.
When the feeder is installed, it should be noted that the two coils on either side of it must line up with each other perfectly. Usually the manufacturers’ instructions manual will indicate which coils need to line up. However, if you’re not sure then ask your distributor or whoever bought the equipment for you. Straightener machines are usually not made to be easily repaired, so don’t try it if you think it can be done. Instead, ask for help and get the job done right the first time.
The other important feature of a straightener feeder is the warranty. Most of them come with a warranty and even more include additional ones. However, just like with any other product, read all the small print carefully. Check for possible defects and don’t select a company that offers a poor warranty or no warranty at all. Also, be careful if you have a common straightener problem: replace the whole unit (including the heating element) to get a new one that is going to work.
If you’ve ever owned a cordless hair straightener before then you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about when I say that they are incredibly easy to damage. Also, many cordless straighteners have extremely short operational times. A good indication of whether the straightener is working properly or not is to make sure the unit doesn’t run when you aren’t looking at it. Another sign is a loud buzzing sound when it’s working.
When you’re looking for a straightener feeder, you have two basic options: pay a premium for a professional installation and use your own equipment; or go for the do-it-yourself straightener kit. These kits include everything you need to get your straightener up and running in a matter of minutes, and you can find them at any home improvement store. The only drawback with these kits is that you won’t be able to take advantage of the manufacturer’s warranty or guarantee. However, they are still a great option if you’re looking for something relatively inexpensive and easy to use. As with anything else, it all comes down to what you’re willing to spend and what you’re willing to put into it.
