Out of the curve with no loss of cross-section and no burrs
Efficient for tight pipe coils with the new pipe bending/forming system from transfluid
Wherever boilers let warm water flow or heat exchangers do their energy-efficient work, pipe coils are needed as system components. But before the coiled pipes are ready to use, the outlets have to be machined, precisely and with no loss of cross-sectional area. For this challenge, the solution finders at transfluid Maschinenbau GmbH put their right-hand/left-hand bending machines to use in a specially developed system.
Measure, position, bend
The coiled material is first placed into a measuring device by a robot. Here, the exact diameter and length of the pipe coil is entered that define the orientation and position of the outlets. Then the machine positions the component in accordance with the measured data, then bends the pipe ends with an impressive ovality of less then 5 percent. The outlets are absolutely precisely positioned and can be installed directly in the boiler.
After bending, the pipe coil is moved into a fully automated processing system. This system cuts the pipe ends without burrs, and axially form a cone. A frontal sealing surface for flat-sealing elements is also attached as a conical thread cut. This combination makes it possible for the customer for this special transfluid system to seal both frontally and on the threads. Another decisive advantage of this advanced process: The processing of extremely thin-walled pipe is supported, and all processes are completed without burrs. That ensures clean fabrication and optimum efficiency in the production process.
