Automation has reached the high pressure industry with Maxpro’s (Fairview, PA) newest product addition, the Coning and Threading Machine. Precision cutting blades combine with the latest technology to produce the fastest and most accurate method to cone and thread high pressure tubing and nipples for high pressure applications (15,200 to 152,000 psi), says the company. Some of its unique features include:
- Selector knob allows the operator to “dial in” the tubing size to be coned and threaded.
- Both coning and threading are done in sequential operations controlled by the single lever with hand wheel assist. No need to remove the tube for each operation once tightened into the collet.
- Capable of 4-inch straight length coning and threading operation 1/4-inch OD thru 1-inch medium and high pressure tubing.
- Cutting oil is filtered and returned to reservoir.
