S-54 Collaring Machine with Automatic Feed Table

The S-54 collaring machine with Automatic Feed Table (AFT) provides a solution for automatic making of collars (manifolds, headers) within range 6–54 mm (¼” – 2⅛”).

Using a touchscreen for input, the T-DRILL Interface provides on-screen prompts to guide the operator through the programming process. Up to 300 different programs can be stored with each containing as many as 300 steps. They can be stored as templates to be modified later or completely re-written. These programs can include steps to allow the operator to perform actions on the part not related to the T-DRILL process and then continue. Programs can be written, edited and stored on external workstations and moved to the T-DRILL Interface when needed.

The standard lengths for automatic feed tables are for maximum tubes of 1,500, 2,500, 3,500, 4,500, 6,000 and 8,000 mm  (59”, 96” 118”, 236” and 315”). Other lengths are available on request.

  • The run tube diameter for each table lengths is 8(10)–108 mm (5/16” – 4⅛”)
  • Collaring range 6–54 mm (¼” – 2⅛”) for copper and aluminum
  • Collaring range 10–54 mm (⅜” – 2⅛”) for mild and stainless steel
  • Minimum tube length 50 mm (2”)

Working cycle

  • The tube is fastened to the tube carriage.
  • A suitable collaring program is selected from the NC controls.
  • Automatic cycle is started.
  • When all collars are ready, the head stock moves back to loading position.
  • The operator changes the tube and repeats the program by starting the NC-cycle or selecting a new program

Cycle time depends on number and size of collars as well as material used. For example, it takes 65 seconds to produce ten 8 mm (5/16”) outlets spaced 100 mm (4”) apart in a 1,500 mm (60”) copper manifold.

Applications

The S-54 with AFT is typically used for the production of air conditioning and floor-heating equipment and solar panel manifolds. The T-DRILL collaring method dramatically improves the quality of tube joints. It also makes the brazing operation easy to carry out since the collar fastens the branch tube to correct position, thus allowing brazing without other fixtures.
