Manchester Tool & Die Inc. has introduced the new 24014 high-pressure, high-thrust groover for rolling or cutting operations with quick tool changes and simplified access to tooling. The groover features five-second cycle time (depending on the application and optional equipment), a machine capacity of 3/4 in. dia. by 0.120-in. wall, a jaw opening of 1-1/4 in., and a clamp force of 3 tons.
The tool operates by advancing and closing a spinning head containing rolling or cutting tools over a clamped tube. The depth of the rolled or machine-cut grooves can be changed with a simple adjustment. The groover is equipped with a 7-1/2-HP spindle motor with variable speed control on the motor, a panel view operator interface, and voltage based on customer specifications.
