The production application of the TRIDAN Model STQS-4 is to straighten and cut to a pre-determined length level-wound coiled tubing of copper or aluminum. It is a fully integrated system consisting of a Tube Straightening, Sizing, and Lubrication Section, adjustable-length Tube Feeding Section, and a chipless Tube Cutoff Section. Supporting equipment include a Tube Decoiling System, a Tube Runnout/Collector System, and a Tube End Deburring Stand. The Control System is designed in such a manner that all operations are sequenced fully automatically or may be individually placed under manual control.
The Tube Straightening, Feeding, and Cutoff Sections are mounted on a machined base plate, which also serves as the top of the weldment-constructed hydraulic reservoir. This over-sized reservoir is an integral part of the machine’s frame, and is furnished with a liquid level gauge and thermometer, as standard equipment.
The Tube Decoiling System is built on a weldment frame of sufficient size and rigidity to support the number and size of coils dictated by the application.
The Tube Runnout/Collector System is designed to provide support for the tubing during its feeding, and an area is provided for the collection of cut tubes.
The Tube End Deburring Stand, if purchased, is integrated into the Tube Runnout/Collector System, and provides a method for removing the burrs on the tube end caused by the saw cutoff.
