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.
The CTM 916 has full safety features; including warning labels, an emergency stop button, and yellow guards.
CE safety is provided for UK and EU countries
