Advantages of PipeLathe

KRAIS Tube Expanders

HEAVY DUTY DESIGN

All the Lathe series machine design is based on long steel spindle which assure maximum rigidity because the locking shaft is fully mounted into that spindle instead partially into the main aluminium body what is casing adverse vibration due to a lot of tension on it.

KRAIS Tube Expanders

POWERFUL MOTOR UNIT

Powerful and efficient drive dedicated for our Lathe series beveling machines. 0-5 rpm and 12500 Nm (9219 ft.lbs) torque on the cutter blade is a standard feature.

KRAIS Tube Expanders

6 POINT LOCKING JAWS

150 mm (5,9”) shaft, assures rigidity when machining heavy wall pipe. The jaws are fully contained within the shaft with no need for retaining springs or O-rings that easily brake or get lost.

KRAIS Tube Expanders

HEAVY DUTY PENDANT

Machine is equipped with a heavy duty pendant. This can be attached to both sides of the motor for operator convenience.

Optional motor units

KRAIS Tube Expanders

MOTOR PDE

The PipeLathe can also be supplied as an electric version, with a 3200 Watt heavy duty motor.

KRAIS Tube Expanders

MOTOR PDH

Optional super strong hydraulic motor. Constructed on the basis of a small hydraulic motor and multistage planetary gear box. PipeLathe version generates 6 rpm and up to 14200 Nm (10475 Ft.Lbs) torque on cutter blade at constant cutting speed.
