Make collars, cut to length and form the tube ends with T-DRILL technologies faster and more accurately than with any other method and still save both money and material

Whenever two pipes need to be joined together, T-DRILL is the answer.

Collaring (Tee forming or Branching) – The T-DRILL method of producing outlets to branch connections directly from run pipe material was developed in the 1970’s. Today, it is still one of the major inventions in the field and have become an industry standard, recognized and accepted worldwide.

ADVANTAGES OF T-DRILL METHOD:

  • No T-fittings
  • No costly inventories
  • No tube cutting
  • Only one brazed/welded joint instead of three
  • Optimized flow-characteristics
  • Smaller risk of leakage
  • Minimized inspection cost
  • Remarkable faster through-put times
  • Applicable to almost all malleable materials including stainless steel, CuNi, aluminium alloys and copper

Collaring is used in several applications in the following business sectors:

Clean, Cost-effective and accurate Chipless Cutting Technology (TCC)

The trusted T-DRILL Chipless rotary tube cut-off systems provides a highly automated, fast and accurate method for cutting small diameter tubes to length from coils or straight lengths. Thanks to “Pull-apart” method, the tubes are ready for mandrel bending without washing or brushing, which makes the system even very clean.

In-line end-formers are available for single or both ends providing all common end forms in copper, brass, aluminium and steel. For steel applications, double end chamfering machines provides end-finishing solution for wide range of tube lengths.

Chipless Cutting is used mainly in the following business sectors:

Use T-DRILL technology and achieve new potential in heavy-duty tube end forming and flanging.

Lips and flanges are formed directly on the end of the tube – a system that saves up to 40 % in both time and costs compared with traditional weld neck flange connections. Because there’s no risk of weld or brazes fractures, the result is always precise and the quality high.

The multipurpose T-DRILL Flanging Machines are capable of cold and hot forming on both long and bent tubes and pipes with either smooth or grooved flanged surfaces. The T-DRILL Tube End Spinning Machines are fully automatic and suitable for closing, reducing and expanding of copper and brass tubes.

Tube End Forming is used mainly in the following business sectors:
