Tee Forming Machine Designed with Great Productivity

Posted on Jan 3, 2020


In the metal forming sector, tee forming machine is a kind of piping and plumbing fitting process. For fastening, a fitting or adapter is used in pipe systems to connect straight sections of pipes or tubes, making it adaptive to different sizes or shapes, and for other purposes such as regulating liquid current.

Regulating purpose

These fittings are used in plumbing process to manipulate the conveyance of liquid body such as water, gas, or waste liquid in both domestic and commercial circumstances, within a system of pipes or tubes connected. Fittings require a series of resources such as money, time, materials and tools to install, and are an important part of piping and plumbing systems.

Tee usages

Tees are the most common pipe fitting forms used in all kind of environments. Tee object is used to combine or divide liquid flow, making the flow to the targeted direction with ideal form.

Tee is available with female thread sockets, solvent-weld sockets, or opposed solvent-weld sockets, and a female-threaded side outlet, linking a wide variety of materials. Tee objects can connect pipes of different diameters and are able to change the direction of a pipe run, or even both. This item is available in a variety of materials, sizes and finish qualities.

They may also be used to deliver two different liquid into mixtures together. Tees may be equal or unequal in size of their three connection points, while normally speaking are with equal tees as the most common cause.

Detracting tee

Detracting tee is a specific type of tee fitting which is used primarily in pressurized heating systems in order to divert a portion of the flow from the main line into a side branch connected to a radiator or heat exchanger system.

The detracting tee is mapped and designed to allow liquid flow to continue in the main line, even when the side branch is shut down and not calling for heats. As a result, detracting tees have directional markings which must be heeded so that it would be no unnecessary confusion.

Tee forming

Many of the collaring machines are designed for a wide variety of processing materials, allowing many materials to be processed by the machine, such as aluminum, brass, copper, nickel, stainless steel, steel, etc. Many tube branching machines can be equipped with Manual that can produce header pipe with ten 8 mm outlets in a minute, realizing the best productivity.

MFT system

The MFT (Manual Feed Table) is a very user friendly, safe and ergonomic item for users that is supported by many suppliers. There are many specifications based on the main collaring machine features, while in most of the cases, standard versions are for 1500, 2500, 3500 and 4500 and 6000 mm long tubes.

In some cases, the MFT is also able to handle complex bent tubes as well. The tooling for holding the tube depends on the tube end, and different tooling is for open and closed the tube ends. With the MFT, it is possible to make the positioning of collar items on the whole tube length by exploiting three selectable drilled (finished before the processing) templates or using the pneumatic brake by the foot pedal mechanism.

As an option for onsite operators, there is a digital positioning device with a display that offers great HMI. The tube can be rotated at standard intervals of 15 degrees, and any degree interval is possible through the use of different templates. It is easy and quick to change templates when it is needed, depending on the working condition and environment.

Large size tee welding machine

Some large-sized tee objects are used in power industry for large volume liquid and in that case, suppliers offer some special hydraulic press machines to produce fittings (i.e. elbows, tees, and reducers) according to customers’ standard requirements (like, say, ASME, DIN, or other standards).

The processing procedure and the technological processes are: Firstly, cut the raw material metal (work piece) list in a special form. Secondly, put it in a special mold or die precisely, and thirdly, press it as normal press machines do. The machine will weld 2 parts of fitting finishing in a beveling machine, realizing better precision and joint connection. For this part of the process, the welding method may vary according to the final applications that end users demands so that the welded quality is directed to the appropriate technological specifications.
