Another Winton Machine Engineered Solution: One Continuous Operation to Feed, Cut, Bend & Drill Tubing
Metro Atlanta, Georgia – Winton Machine was contacted by an HVAC equipment producer who manufactures commercial kitchen ventilation systems looking to increase accuracy and efficiency in their tube fabrication process. They specifically identified the need for a solution to eliminate a manual tube transfer to complete a secondary drilling operation.
Peter Reilly, Winton Machine Engineering Sales Rep, shared, “Once we learned more about their application and needs, we recommended using a CTL 30PA and a RD 30 eCNC. After a successful 3Q2017 installation and six months operating time to prove out the equipment, the customer ordered additional sets of the machines and tooling to be installed at other U.S. manufacturing facilities in 2018.” Reilly has been an engineering sales expert for Winton since 2004 and has been in the machine tool industry for 40 years specializing in tube bending solutions.
The Winton Model RD30 eCNC machines (pictured below) are designed to include an optional drilling feature that allows for holes to be drilled within the bending process eliminating the need for a secondary operation saving both time and cost. The CTL 30PA machines are designed to automatically feed and cut tubing with precision and speed. Batch programming as part of the Winton proprietary software ensures accuracy of the Winton CTL 30PA performance when tube lengths vary in one fabrication session.
"After being in the tube fabrication business for over 20 years, I’ve had many conversations with people who trust us to help them find a better way to produce their tube parts," stated George Winton, P.E., President and Co-Owner of Winton Machine. "We keep in touch until an engineer, business owner or plant manager decides to take the next step - even if the cost justification or decision takes years. We often partner with customers to innovate on installed systems as needs change. This is how options like drilling and soft clamp become realities." Winton is a Professional Engineer with over 30 years of experience designing industrial machinery.
