GRANLUND KCL is used for cutting standard length (precut) thin walled tubes into desired final lengths. It is, as oppposed to KCT, not meant to be placed in line with the tube welding mill, but to operate separately. Therefore, it is equipped with a magazine, storing the precut tubes.
KCL is equipped with the GRANLUND Cutting Head, GRANLUND KCH.
The KCL is equipped with a PLC system and a terminal with 4×20 digits. The desired cut length is set at the control panel. The length data can be changed during operation, i e no set-up time.
Too short and too long tubes are sorted out.
Changing to a new tube diameter takes about 2 hours, and requires changing:
• Calibrating mandrels,
• Clamping jaws in cutting device and calibrating device,
• Tube holder,
• Guide bushings and
• Adjustment of slot in feeding device
