T-DRILL TEC-220 is a powerful Collaring machine for up to SCH 40 pipes. The TEC-220 forms mechanically extruded outlets directly on run pipes up to 813 mm (32”). The machine is suitable for branching all malleable materials (Steel, Stainless steel, Aluminium, Copper & Copper-Nickel). The entire process –from pilot hole milling to a complete, trimmed branch outlet up to Ø219,1 mm (8”) can be performed on a single workstation in three automatic work cycles.

Pilot hole milling and collaring are easily controlled by an operation panel along with automatic lubrication for each step of the process. The standard branch programs can be loaded from machine memory. The operator can also create custom collaring programs or modify them from the standard programs.

A balancer makes the milling unit (EC) very easy to handle. For increased safety, sensors verify the collaring head is correctly installed before starting the fully automatic collar extrusion. After the quick and accurate trimming process, the branch pipe can be connected to a formed outlet either by orbital or manual welding.

T-DRILL TEC-220 is an Industry 4.0 ready machine with many possibilities. The sturdy, ergonomically designed machine is equipped with many safety features that make the TEC-220 safe and easy to operate even in the heaviest applications. The delivery package also includes a convenient Tool Table.

Several accessories & options are available to customize and upgrade machine operation & tool handling:

  • Tube Measuring Table
  • Tube Railing System
  • Automatic Positioning System (APS)
  • Jib arm for easy tool handling – recommended with large tools
  • Laser pointer for accurate collar positioning
  • Special whole-body clamps when necessary
  • Angle measuring device when more than one branch in one run pipe, but measuring table is not needed
  • Heavy Duty collaring tools for thick wall (SCH 40) pipes
  • Ball pull option for extra small-, thick wall collars or e.g. with hygienic applications
  • Beveling device with typically 37° bevel for welding preparation with thick wall (SCH 40) pipes

The TEC-220 is an ideal solution for many industries:

  • Stainless Steel Enterprises – e.g. pumps, valves, food & dairy, water treatment, pharmaceutical & chemical industries
  • HVAC – e.g. heat exchangers, air pumps, radiators
  • Shipbuilding – e.g. air handling, clean & wastewater, ballast water, engine tubes
  • Any branching application utilizing malleable tube and pipe
