The very fast and highly accurate TCC-25 LM chipless cut-off machine uses Linear Feeding system for cutting tubes up to 6,000 mm (236”) in length.
The machine has been designed to cutting raw material fed from coil. The cutting method is adapted for all malleable materials such as aluminum, copper and steel.
It also has the power needed to feed and straighten tubes up to diameter 25,4 mm (1”) or coiled steel tubing up to diameter 12,5 mm (0.5’’) with wall thicknesses between 0,.4–2,5 mm (0.4” – 0.1’’).
By experience T-DRILL has found that 3 m/s feeding speed and acceleration of 25 m/s2 are normally the maximum values – which, when bearing in mind the cutting quality and length tolerances, are very high compared with any other method.
What makes the TCC-25 LM special is the ability to cut several cut-lengths automatically based on touch screen parameters. These lengths will be sorted automatically after the cutting operation by the sorting table. The automatic cutting of different lengths is a useful function when several cut-lengths from the same tube diameter are needed for the assembly.
Another useful application is to have a single TCC-25 LM for cutting tubes for several bending or endforming machines each making different parts.
The operator interface is a touch screen control panel. It includes advanced functions and diagnostics, which makes the TCC-25 LM very easy to use – even for a non-skilled operator. From the control panel the operator can change settings and parameters.
It is likely that the industries will be using coils more frequently instead of straight length tubes. Coil sizes will also increase. Tube diameters on coils are also likely to become larger and coiled steel tubing will be used more frequently. With the TCC-25-LM linear motor technology, a dedicated decoiling system, a straightener with quick changeable rolls and advanced software T-DRILL meets the needs of most of these demanding cut-off applications.
Unlike ball screws, linear motors provide direct linear motion without mechanical linkages. A permanent magnet linear motor can be thought of as a permanent magnet rotary motor, whose stator and rotor have been cut along a radial plane and unrolled to provide linear thrust.
The same forces of electromagnetism that produce torque in rotary motors are used to produce direct linear force in linear motors. The result is a flat linear motor that produces linear force, as opposed to torque, because the axis of rotation no longer exists.
