The AX1445 Flange Facer is light weight and due to its internal exhaust air ducting system, surprisingly quiet.,Internally mounted, this machine has a working range of 356mm (14”) to 1143mm (45”) and also features four continuous feed rates.The mounting bases come in two sizes, and have micro-adjustable pads to help quickly align the base during set-up. A single 3kW (4 hp) pneumatic motor drives the turntable, adjustable arm and tool post arrangement.
The mounting bases for the machine are supplied in two sizes to ensure maximum stability throughout the machining range. The bases are set up using the clocking tower bar supplied, to centralise and level the base exactly. A base is adjusted parallel to the flange by four micro precision pads. It has a detachable locating spigot fitting into a hardened bush, ensuring the machine is positioned as accurately as the base is set.
Drive Hub Assembly
A 2.61kw (3.5hp) air motor is contained within the drive hub, giving plenty of power to tackle welds, bolt holes and more exotic materials such as stainless steels. The machine is surprisingly quiet, as the exhaust is vented down the bore and muffled by its body.
The versatility of this machine is a direct result of the use of the Silk 4-speed gearbox. This allows the machine to feed in or out to give a continuous spiral finish.
Adjustable Arm & Tool
Sliding in a dovetail clamp enables the surfacing arm to be positioned to suit the flange, or any obstructions around it. The arm is clamped on the dovetail and pressed down onto hardened pads to maintain accuracy. The swivel tool post can be tilted for weld preparation, grooving or special applications.
