CTM 916

The Automatic Elbow Machine is designed to produce high quality straight elbows, which can be hand turned to any angle between 0° and 90°.  The cutting plane of this machine is 15° from the horizontal plane, thus requiring 3 cuts for a 90° elbow.  Only one operator is required. This machine is equipped with a full set of tooling to produce 9", 10", 12", 14", 16" Ø elbows; or tooling can be purchased separately if only a few select sizes are needed.  Size changes take only 20-25 minutes to complete.
