VSM: AUTOMATIC CAGE WELDING MACHINES FOR THE PRODUCTION OF LARGE PIPES WITH BELL AND SPIGOT END
With this high performance fully automatic welding machine VSM operating vertically it is possible to manufacture the high precision cylindrical cages of any length for pipes in the diameter range from 1560 to 6000 mm.
The fully automated production process on the VSM welding machines can be supervised by a single operator.
Almost all reinforcement production parameters, including the winding wire pitch, are infinitely adjustable.
The VSM welding head rotates within the reinforcement cage being produced while at the same time the winding wire is being fed from the outside. This production method facilitates the fabrication of double cages in a single production process. Following completion of the outer cage the inner cage is simply fabricated inside it.
