Automated line for circular saw cutting and nipple bending with core.
Compact, fast and easy to use
Available with one or more lanes, this is the ideal choice for companies in the refrigeration sector with large production volumes, which need quality bending for medium-large sized nipples. The line consists of an unwinder, straightening and feeding unit, circular saw cutting and bending unit with core. The finished pieces are unloaded into a dedicated container. For smaller nipples, a nipple cutting line is available.
The bending line is specialised in circular saw cutting and bending with core from a coiled pipe. It makes L or U bends, and the production changeover operations are simple and fast. The machine is equipped with a highly intuitive control panel, which assists and guides the operator during all operations. The circular saw cutting is carried out using minimal lubrication, properly conveyed to keep the work area clean.
The line is equipped with two sets of five rolls, which work on the vertical plane and then on the horizontal plane to straighten the pipe coming from the coil. The pipe is fed to the cutting zone by means of a belt and brushless motor, while a pair of rolls connected to an encoder determines the cutting length. The dimensional characteristics of the nipple can be set from the panel.
When the pipe is in position, the core advances and bending is carried out by means of a hydraulic action. When bending is complete, the retractable core returns to the resting position and cutting occurs with the circular saw, which is driven by a pneumatic cylinder. The finished piece is unloaded into a container that’s easy to remove.
The cutting and bending line for nipples with medium-large diameter is specifically designed to guarantee high quality bending, thanks to use of the core.
Hydraulic bending guarantees excellent results.
Each single electrical, pneumatic and hydraulic component is numbered and referenced in the diagrams supplied with the user manual.
In a practical container that can be extracted and positioned at will.
