The Model STMBC-1 Qual-Ekon Tube Straightener and Cut-to-Length Line is one of a family, of four tube straighteners and cut-to-length lines built by TRIDAN; which utilize an orbital-type chip-free(chipless) tube cutoff system. The Model STMBC-1 processes four(4) tubes per cycle, while the Models STVBC-1 and STQBC-1 processes six(6) and two(2) tubes per cycle, respectively.
Supporting equipment include a Tube Decoiling System, a Tube Runnout/Collector System, and an optional Tube End Resizing System. The Control System is designed in such a manner that all operations are sequenced fully automatically or may be individually placed under manual control.
GENERAL MACHINE DESCRIPTION:
The production application of the TRIDAN Model STMBC-1 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 and Sizing Section, adjustable-length Tube Feeding Section, and a chipless Tube Cutoff Section. Supporting equipment include a Tube Decoiling System, a Tube Runout/Collector System, and an optional Tube End Resizing System. 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. Under this base plate is mounted a packaged hydraulic power unit. This power unit features an amply-sized reservoir which 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 Runout/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 optional Tube End Resizing System, if purchased, is integrated into the Tube Runout/Collector System, and provides a method of re-sizing one or both ends of the cut tube lengths.
