Pipe Forming Machine is basically an industrial process which converts PVC pipe into various other flexible products like pipes, joints, hose, and tubing. It is also called as hotend process and hot work process. There are two types of Pipe Forming Machine available in the market. The first one is known as a closed pipe form machine and the other one is known as open pipe form machine. Both machines are essentially used to manufacture several other products of different types such as pipe fittings, sheets, sleeves, tubing, packing etc. However, while installing these products, one must have proper knowledge about the proper installation procedures.
Firstly, you should have a look at the basic function of each machine unit. Basically, they are manufactured with two major units known as pipe clamping unit or threaded rod clamping unit and the hotend drum or cone. The pipe clamps are placed on both sides of the pipe joints. On the other hand, the hotel is placed above the pipe and its end is clamped by the pipe clamping unit. The clamps or cones are then placed on both the sides of the pipe joint to ensure that the pipe is properly aligned.
The main difference between these two machine units is the mechanism used. In the case of clamps, it has a threaded rod or threaded shaft attached to the end of the clamp and the pipe is clamped using threads. However, in hotel die, it is a steel cylinder which rotates on an axis and melts the pipe on both sides of it. The main function of this machine is to melt the pipe into a liquid state and this process is known as melting the pipe. Hence, the basic functioning of hotend die forming machine is same as of clamps.
Another aspect of hotend forming machine is the type of machines which are used for forming the pipes. There are different types of machine available in the market and all the machines perform the same functions. However, there are many companies that provide pipe forming machines for free. If you are interested in purchasing any of these machines, you must know the basic functioning of each of the machine and must be prepared to undertake the required amount of work.
First of all, you must analyze the size of the pipe and the diameter of the pipe which has to be formed. This type of machine accepts different pipe sizes and it requires large equipment to manufacture large pipes. This type of machine may use different types of tools and you can decide the type of machine that suits your requirements. It is also available in different types of finishes. You can decide whether you want the pipe to have a polished finish or if you want it to be left natural.
After understanding the basic functioning of the pipe forming machine, you must learn about the clamps and the pipe wrench which are used for tightening and relaxing the pipe. The clamps and the pipe wrench must be matched with the pipe size so that they can provide you with perfect results. The pipe wrench and the clamps are used for joining and the pipe clamps are placed over the end of the pipe while the hotend die is placed over the hotend. The pipe must be placed inside the die and it is important that the pipe fits completely within the die. In order to ensure that the pipe is properly placed inside the hotel die, the pipe must be clamped tightly and the clamps should be adjusted properly.
