Automated line for the circular saw cutting of capillary tubes in copper and aluminium.
Compact, fast, complete
The automatic capillary tube cutting line is specifically designed for the straightening, cutting and brushing of tubes with diameter from 2 to 6mm. After cutting, the tube is brushed, and on request, belled. All operations are automatically carried out on the same line. Unloading occurs by means of an integrated slide with modular length.
The automatic line for circular saw cutting of capillary tubes incorporates everything you need for the highest quality capillary tube machining, in very little space. Each detail is designed to facilitate the operator’s work with fast and simple changeovers and adjustments. An ergonomically positioned control panel allows the automatic and intuitive management of all operations. Operator safety is guaranteed by safeguards in accordance with the machinery directive.
The line is equipped with a set of 5 straightening rolls. To reduce changeover times, up to three seats can be obtained on the same roll for as many diameters. During production changeovers, the roll-holder plate simply needs to be repositioned without replacing the rolls themselves. The tube feeding occurs by means of two pairs of rolls, shaped like the straightening rolls, and equipped with a brushless motor.
The tube is blocked by a pneumatic clamp before cutting, and cut with a downward moving blade. The cutting head is fitted with a hydraulic brake to ensure the linearity of the cut. After cutting, the tube is brushed on both ends, thanks to a shifting system that slides the brush lengthways with respect to the tube axis. The cutting length is determined by the encoder.
Even the simplest machines require dedicated features to adapt to special working conditions, to different materials, to new needs determined by technological evolution. For all these reasons, the following options are available to improve your production.
Depending on the material, 7 extra straightening rolls can be supplied, to be used only when necessary.
Supplied in variable lengths according to production needs.
Mounted on perpendicular guides, this can be activated from the panel when required for production.
The cutting line for capillary tubes finds its ideal application in the refrigeration sector.
