Notcher makes 90-degree joints on both ends of tube in single cycle
Innovo Corp. has introduced the Generation II line of H237DN-D hydraulic double end-notching systems for high-volume notching applications producing 90-degree joints on both ends of tubing or pipe in a single cycle.
The unit has a capacity of 2-in. Sch. 40 pipe. It can be adjusted to accept tubes from 12 in. long to the maximum length of the selected unit. Standard models are available for 4-, 12-, 16-, and 20-ft. tube lengths and longer.
The machine features a simplified transfer mechanism of tubing from loader to notch heads and reduced cycle times, offering maximum production rates of about 1,200 tubes/hr. in a single tool unit to approximately 2,400 tubes/hr. in a double tool unit.
Options include manual load units, units with a bundle loader, and units that can be integrated with a tube mill to minimize handling.
