Our machinery is designed for innovative and cost-effective solutions for fluid carrying systems for heating and cooling, fuel and brake lines, and power steering tubing.
The T-DRILL collaring method enables reliable and easy T-joining of tubes. This has vital importance for automotive coupled tube applications, because every vehicle is subject to severe vibrations that can create leakages and other problems with traditionally made jointing methods or, in the worst case, just a plain drilled hole.
The extruded collar results in a lap joint that meets or exceeds the braze cup requirements of 3 x wall thickness. This increased surface area between the extruded collar and the branch tube provides the most reliable brazed joint.
It is also important to note that T-DRILL's extruded outlets are formed only outside of the main run tube. This eliminates all flow restrictions that are common with some other forming operations.
S-54 collaring machines are used in the manufacture of engine a/c systems, fuel rail and high pressure diesel products as well as exhaust cross-over applications and vapor recovery systems.
The T-DRILL range of automatic chipless cut-off machines offer extremely high accuracy with fast production rates for cutting tubes from coil or rackloading systems for multilayered straight tubes. Various materials such as aluminum, stainless steel and brake pipe tubing can be cut using either method.
