Tools and Machinery
Since the 1960's, the Technology department of Uponor Infra has been supplying equipment such as welding systems, pipe cutting, polyurethane foaming systems, and other technology solutions for the plastics industry.
Butt Welding equipment
Uponor butt fusion field machines
Field machines for butt fusion welding of PE, PP and PVDF pipes, as well as fittings, are found in the PT-Series. The machines are hydraulic and designed for joining pipes and fittings ranging from OD 40 to OD 1600 mm. All PT-machines are equipped with LDU connections, and can be supplied as or converted to a CNC machine.
Uponor butt fusion workshop machines
Workshop machines for the butt fusion welding of PE, PP and PVDF pipes and fittings are found in the PL and EURO series. You can choose between fully hydraulic PL and manually operated EURO machines for fusion jointing and butt fusion welding ranging from OD 40 to OD 1600mm. The workshop welding machines of the PL series are designed for the butt welding of pipes and fittings of PE, PP, PVDF, and other thermoplastic materials. All machines of the PL series are highly suitable for the production of prefabricated fittings. PL machines from 315 CNC are hydraulically operated and equipped with a CNC unit, which enables automatic welding with the possibility to print out and transfer all process parameters to PC-Database "Memoplan". The pivoting clamps allow production of segmented bends in different radiuses. Reduction inserts, produced in sets of two half-shells, are lying one in each other.
PL-DH models are specially designed for the welding of thin walled PE jacket pipes for the manufacturing of district heating pipe fittings.
Uponor Infra Technology supplies Band Saw Machines for plastic pipes are enabling cutting of pipes up to 4500m. The cutting angle, cutting speed and band vertical feed are steplessly variable. Prismatic guide shafts, continuously angular adjustment scale, automatic cutting stop and adjustable saw blade guides ensures an accurate and high quality result. BSM models consists of band saws ranging from OD 50 mm to OD 1600 mm. Large plastic pipe saws GR-BSM’s are able to cut the pipes up to OD 4500 mm. BSM-DH models are specially designed for thin walled plastic pipes.
Modern robot chambers machining stations for automated processing of chambers, manholes and pipe parts enabling high precision and fast processing of fitting components are also available.
