The tilting table is operated pneumatically.
The tube or element is pulled from the machine (e g the reducing rolling mill) after which the KOM is placed, by the with-drawing rolls and rests on an L-shaped support. As the receiving table is not tilted until the whole element is free from the mill and is resting on the
support, it will fall or roll down, in parallel into the container. The tubes/elements are bent as little as possible.
The one way receiving table, type KOM-1W, should be used together with equipment where only one way tilting is required, e g a GRANLUND reducing rolling mill.
The two way receiving table, type KOM-2W, can be used in line with the GRANLUND tube welding mill or with the length compensating machine. It can then sort out defective tubes or elements.
