Learn how to quickly change out roll sets to avoid drops in productivity.
In order to obtain the best results and improve tool life, proper lubrication is necessary. There are many different types of lubricants designed to suit specific applications and operator preferences.
Loss of productivity, downtime, and decreased roll quality are all possible results of avoiding routine care of pneumatic motors. These issues require the motor to be removed from operation and examined and possibly sent back to the manufacturer for repairs – possibly delaying jobs.
Some of the most overlooked best practices of tube expansion involves the use of pre-expansion tools. In order to create a better mechanical joint and prolong tool life, it is important that the appropriate pre-expansion tools are used.
CTI’s operators were pleased to find that the Midi-Torq and Maxi-Torq were perfect for their job application. The motors supported the tube OD range, torque range, and production rate required for their work. Additionally, the motors were very durable and reliable, essential for CTI since a large part of their work is performed in the field, all over the world.
Between less tool replacements and faster cycle times, the manufacturer was able to save significant production time by using the 24 Series Expanders.
With Elliott’s 24 Series Expander, this fabricator experienced a significant increase in tool life and ease of use, reducing rework and hassles.
Elliott’s Single Roll Beading Expander saves Keller & Associates on labor costs as compared with the manual method of using an air hammer and beading tool which takes three operations instead of one.
