Slotting Shaft

The JK4012HD slotting shafts are designed to hold 10” of saws per segment of slots.  The two slotting saw shafts are equipped with special built vacuum shrouds with 6” hose connections. The JK4012HD is equipped with down draft vacuum fixtures for better dust collection and will require connection to a dust collection system.  J&K Tool can provide options for a collection system.

The JK4012HD main machine and slotting assembly is stationary.  For this reason, the machine is equipped with a traveling automatic pipe indexer.  Pipe indexing is done with a high torque closed loop stepper motor system designed with higher turning torque to handle 10” and 12” heavy wall SDR 17 or Sch 80 PVC pipe in 20’ lengths.

Features

Heavy Duty Machinery

The JK4012HD is a redesigned heavy duty version of the JK1012D.  This machine is equipped with two 15 hp slotting motor assemblies.

The 1.500” indexer drive shaft is designed to accommodate automatic air operated inside pipe holders.  Pipe moves through the machine with the traveling pipe indexer.  The travel system runs with a high torque closed loop stepper motor system.  This automatic indexer is designed to operate in both directions, either pushing or pulling the pipe through the machine.

Pipe indexing for row stops and indexer travel distance will be monitored and set with an Panasonic Touch Screen.  The touch screen is used to set the amount of rows to be slotted, display the active row, set and display the travel distance per segment of slots, display cycle time for each screen, and display the running total of screens (slotted pipe) that have run through the machine.
