Instructions for Maintaining Equipment

Regular maintenance is essential to ensure the longevity and optimal performance of your automatic tube end-forming machine. Here are some essential maintenance tasks to keep in mind:

● Lubricate the sliding parts regularly.
● Clean the Clamping Die regularly to remove any pipe material fragments.
● Regularly fill the shrinkage machine with grease.
● Ensure the surface of the pipe is free from oil stains by cleaning it with alcohol beforehand.

Precautions for Operating the Equipment

Before operating the equipment, it's crucial to take note of the following precautions to ensure safe and accurate usage:

● When replacing tubes of different diameters and lengths, readjust the bin size, positioning size, clamping dies, and claws accordingly.
● Before using the equipment, check the motor rotation to avoid any complications caused by reversing rotation.
● Always turn off the main power supply when the equipment is not in use.

Requirements for Installing the Machine

Proper installation is key to optimal performance from your automatic tube end-forming machine. Pay attention to the following installation requirements:

● The power inlet line should be a three-phase five-wire system with a power supply voltage of 380V. Choose a power supply line that matches the equipment's power at the end of the automatic tube.
● Ensure the equipment is free from interference with the grounding wire and connection to guarantee operational stability and personal safety.
● Select a dry, stable, compressed air source with an air pressure above 0.6 Mpa. Lubricate the oil mist separator of the air source triplex with an appropriate amount of air compressor oil.
