The standard pipe support tray is 14’ long, enabling slotting capability 1/2″ through 6″ in 10’ lengths. This machine can also be built by request with a pipe support tray for slotting 20′ lengths of pipe. The tray is designed to be stationary and anchored to the floor at both ends, which will require less floor space, approximately 4′ x 16′ for the shorter tray and approximately 4′ x 26′ for the longer tray.
The machine in mounted on four 15″ pneumatic wheels mounted on 1″ sealed taper bearings. The slotting motor assembly will then travel along the tray for each segment of slots.
Approximate Slotting Times:
6-7 minutes on 10’ of 2″ with 4 rows, 1/4″ slot spacing
8-9 minutes on 10’ of 4″ with 5 rows, 1/4″ slot spacing
Most often, a 10’ row of slots with 1/4″ spacing will take 2-3 minutes.
Times will vary depending on pipe size, saw width, amount of saws, size of saws. The machine runs the best with 20 to 25 saws.
