Tube Processing Machines (Garboli)

The LT200 machines are designed for straight tube processing & can be a multi-head installation to allow for single processing and finishing of high volumes of tube up to a maximum 203mm diameter.

The Garboli LPC500 machines can process straight and bent tubes.

The good news is that unlike a centreless machine both machines can cope with tapered or drawn tube which is too uneven to drive consistently through a centrless grinding process.

Garboli offer the option of machines with a wet filtration process integrated with the machine.  in that caase you need no other filtration.

If you choose to buy a dry machine, which comes with a dust extraction out-take point then we strongly advise that you use a dust extraction unit.  not only does it keep the local environment cleaner but it also improves the life of the machine and the abrasive belts.

Garboli machines can process tube from very small diameters right up to 203mm.  Which machine is the correct one for you will depend on a number of factors including

  • The volume of production
  • The amount of material removal you will be grinding
  • How straight, or otherwise your tube is

The maximum tube diameters for the Garboli orbital tube polishers is as follows:

  • LPC90                 25mm
  • LPC160               50mm
  • LPC160 MIRROR  46mm
  • LPC300               50mm
  • LPC300 MIRROR  46mm
  • LPC500               203mm
  • LT130                 203mm
  • LT200                 203mm

If it is a high volume production and your tubes will effectively fit through the Garboli orbital sander then we always recommend going one machine larger.  For example.  On 42mm diameter tubular railing we normally recommend the LPC300 which will give you increased belt life with the flexibility to work around most angles used for balustrading applications.

Garboli have a number of options for sanding, cleaning & polishing drawn wire, both in-line and off-line.

–  A simple adaptation to the LPC160 or LPC300 machines will allow for fine tolerance finishing on smaller diameter wires.

Need to descale drawn wire?

–  For more aggressive sanding and descaling off-line then we can make adaptations to the LT130 machines to allow for good control with low speed grinding (3 – 4 m / min)

–  For high volume in line wire descaling and peeling then we would recommend looking at the new Garboli Titan soon to be launched at the international Wire show.
