Internal gripper systems for tubes
This system is appropriate for drawing not pointed tubes. Single and/or multiple internal gripper systems are used.
Due to manual or automatic quick changing systems the tube drawing machines can either be operated with a standard external drawing gripper or with a tube internal gripper system.
- The pointing operation is no longer necessary, therefore the tube handling and conveyance as well as additional intermediate storages are eliminated.
- Material saving because the drawing tag to be cut off is more than 50 % shorter as the standard drawing tag when using the internal gripper system.
The photos shows some typical samples of tubes which have been drawn by our internal gripper device, partially the tubes have been multiple drawn.
