Reading, PA (PRWEB) October 30, 2013
Graebener-Reika, Inc., (GRI) a provider of machinery for processing tube, pipe, bar, plate and sheet metal, has announced the availability of its new Reika Advantage Series Rotary Head machines for cutting tube and pipe, which it will launch at FABTECH 2013 in Chicago at McCormick Center on Nov. 18 in booth #S-3522. This new series of high productivity, high capability machines features all the quality benefits of rotary head cut-off technology in a cost-efficient package with a user-friendly interface. The Advantage series has been engineered to handle a wide array of tube and pipe diameters and thicknesses, making it an efficient and economic choice across an array of applications.
As with Reika’s existing rotary head solutions, the cutting tool rotates around a stationary tube or pipe vs. lathe style cutting machines that spin the pipe. This approach reduces eccentric load on the machine, allowing for faster cutting times and improving both cutting tool and equipment life. The Reika Advantage Series machines offer OD chamfer on both ends of the tube and produce accurate rectangular and perpendicular cuts with no surface damage.
Said Rich Marando, President of GRI, “The Advantage Series rotary cutoff machines represent German technology at a value price ….backed by North American service and support. These machines are a perfect choice for a wide range of tube and pipe processing needs.”
Currently available in two sizes – a two-slide cutoff with a 17 kW motor and a four-slide cutoff with a 24kW motor – both offer high cutting speeds and feed rates to deliver shorter cutting times for high productivity. The Advantage series machines can process tube diameters from 89 to 219mm and wall thickness up to 20 mm.
Graebener-Reika is a leading provider of tubular goods equipment and production services. For more information on the new Advantage Series Rotary Cut-off machine, email sales(at)gr-inc(dot)com, or visit http://www.gr-inc.com to see the entire line of equipment.
