PBM Accessories

With a machining wall thickness of more than 12 mm, it is necessary to mount two or more tools “above” each other. Special insert holders are needed for this operation.

The PBM Accessories have been specially developed to machine all sizes of pipe within the range of the machines, without time-consuming adjustment of the tools. The tool sets consist of insert holders which are provided with hard metal inserts.

The inserts are suitable for the machining of various kinds of material. The tool sets are supplied with a so-called adjusting cone, which makes it possible to quickly and simply adjust the tools in the correct way. The tool sets are supplied as standard in a 30″ or a 37.5″ configuration. Other angles are available on application.

PBM-6 tool set

The 30″ tool set for the PBM-6 consists of three insert holders, each being provided with one insert and one insertholder with two inserts. The 37.5″ tool set consists of two single and two double insert holders. The drawing below provides a view of the insert holders and the sizes of pipe which they machine, for example insertholder no. 1 machines pipe diameters of 30 mm up to and including 1.5″ and insertholder no. 2 machines pipe diameters of 1.5″ up to and including 3″, etc.

PBM-12 and PBM-16 tool set

The tool set for the PBM-12 machine consists of four double insert holders, each being provided with two inserts. The drawing below provides a view of the insert holders and the sizes of pipe which they machine, for example insertholder no. 2 machines pipe diameters of 2.5″ and 3″ and the second insert machines 8″. Insertholder no. 4 machines a pipe diameter of 5″ and the second insert of insertholder no. 4 machines a pipe diameter of 12″, etc.

With a machining wall thickness of more than 12 mm, to a machine wall thickness of more than 12 mm, it is necessary to mount two or more tools “above” each other. Special insert holders are needed for this operation. The situation is then the same as shown on the drawing below (for example no. 1 + 2).

PBM-24 tool set

The tool set for the PBM-24 machine consists of two insert holders, each being provided with one insert, and two insert holders, each being provided with two inserts. Because the inserts overlap each other in a straight line, the set can be used for all pipe diameters within the range of the machine. The tool set is likewise suitable for machining (in one operation) the maximum wall thickness of 45 mm.
