The production application of the TRIDAN Model STVC-4 is to straighten. Also, it is to 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. In addition, it has adjustable-length Tube Feeding Section, and a chipless Tube Cutoff Section.
Supporting equipment includes 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. Also, it may be individually placed under manual control.
STVC Tube Straightener Features
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 oversized 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 optional Tube End Resizing System, if purchased, is integrated into the Tube Runnout/Collector System, and provides a method of re-sizing one or both ends of the cut tube lengths.
