The air-operated self-contained chucks LVE are optimally suited for machining the ends of pipes, especially large and long pipes like the ones used for extracting crude oil or natural gas. For this, a chuck is mounted to the front and rear sides of the machine spindle. This combination allows high chip-cutting performance with high workpiece precision.
High clamping forces can be realized even as of 2 bar of pneumatic operating pressure. That way no separate pressure-generating unit is required, rather existing installations (usually 6 bar) can be used.
The petroleum and natural gas industry remain unchanged as suppliers of raw materials for the energy-generating and petrochemical industry. The delivery and refining of these two raw materials call for the highest precision and greatest possible safety. Technically mature products like the air-operated self-contained chuck with large through-hole from RÖHM enable reliable processing of a great variety of workpieces with the highest safety standard.
