Flex Holder – articulated arm

KRAIS Tube Expanders

Key Features

The FLEXHolder articulated arm supports the weight and absorbs the torque of the rolling motors and beveling machines using a pneumatic counterbalance, which allows the operator to effortlessly move the rolling motor into position.

  • Positive tool holding system virtually eliminates the chance for operator error.
  • Increases expander life up to three times compared to conventional tube rolling.
  • Extends tool life by using the lubricated air from rolling motor’s exhaust for cooling the rolls & mandrels, significantly reducing tooling cost.

Standard model features 1,5 m vertical and 1,5 m horizontal reach (models with in- creased vertical and horizontal capacity are available upon request). Column can be easily removed form the base for the transportation purposes.
