Trip Pneumatic LC Clamshell

The Mactech Europe Pneumatic Air Operated Trip assembly has been introduced to offer safe remote operation of the feed trip pin combined with a two handed start control.

This ensures the operator has full control of the operation of the clamshell lathe while remaining outside the potentially hazardous zone.

The start handle and the trip assembly use air taken from the main air supply to the clamshells pneumatic drive motor and no other power source is required.

To start the machine the operator must use both hands, after start up only one hand is needed to keep the machine running, leaving the other hand free to operate the control of the feed pin.

If the operator releases the run control the machine will come to a stop and the feed pin retracts automatically.

The pneumatic air operated trip assembly is a direct replacement for the manual version with no other modifications necessary.
