The operator carries out the manual loading of the tube in the spring transport vice. Once the tube has been placed in the vice on the production line, two position-controlled probes bring the tube to size. The tube protrudes from the clamps as much as necessary to allow the subsequent insertion of the fittings. The two fittings are loaded automatically and subsequently phased through a rotary gripper.

The pressing head closes the fitting at height, the next station checks the fittings for pressing.


A pneumatic manipulator with electric axes picks up the assembled pipes and unloads them on a trolley.
