GRANLUND KCT is used for cutting thin walled tubes into desired lengths. It is meant to be placed in line with a tube welding mill and to cut the welded tubes directly into desired final lengths. It is equipped with the GRANLUND Cutting Head, KCH.
KCT is often followed by a calibrating unit, GRANLUND KOG.
The cutting head, KCH, is mounted on a moving table. When the KCT gets a signal from the control system (in automatic mode) or a manual order to cut the tube, it ”hunts down” the tube and cuts it. Subsequently it is sorted by a tilting receiving table to the next operation (or sorted out as reject).
An eddy current testing device detects weld faults and KCT cuts and sorts out the defective part as a reject.
KCT is equipped with a control unit where the order and production parameters are set.
