A wide range of standard accessories is available to complement Continental machines—from in-feed tube support systems and automatic tube feeding systems to cutter blocks for all tube sizes. In addition, we will design and build special accessories to meet your particular pipe and tube cutting requirements. These range from special out-feed handling systems to integrating the Continental machine into a work cell.
Following are our standard machine accessories—but if you have special requirements please call us, or fill out our contact form and we’ll get back to you.
Automatic Tube Feed Systems
Programmable, automatic tube feeders are available for all Continental pipe and tube cut-off machines. These feeders can be as simple as a “one-stick-at-a-time” feeder to complete systems to go from tube bundle to cut parts. They can be stand-alone tube feeding/cutting machines or can be integrated into your manufacturing process or cell.
At the simple end, our one-stick-at-a-time programmable tube feeders allow you to manually load one stock length into the feeder. The unit will then feed and cut the tube into programmable lengths. Or we can provide a more complete system that can include tube bundle-loading. In this case you can place a complete bundle of tubes into the feeder. The system will feed one tube length at a time into the feeder rolls and then feed that tube into the cut-off machine to be cut into programmable lengths. Or, a tube storage table can be provided. In this case the operator manually loads tube lengths onto the table. The system will feed one tube length at a time into the feeder rolls and then feed that tube into the cut-off machine to be cut into programmable lengths. By simply keeping the storage table loaded the machine will run continuously.
