End Finishing Machines – 2C | 2CP | 2CPV | 3CPV | 8CPV

PHI Tube End-Finishing Machines, Models 2C, 2CP, 2CPV, 3CPV and 8CPV, form a family of machines for preparing the ends of tube or pipe for joining with other tube or pipe sections, valves, T-joints, or machinery.

Capabilities of PHI Tube and Pipe End-Finishing Machines

Using PHI’s tube end-finishing machines, tube and pipe ends can be prepared with a bead or flare, or simply deburred and squared. Each machine is capable of performing all of these functions with precision and reliable repeatability; a change of tooling is all that is required to switch from one function to another.

Tube and pipe end finishing: Flare, Bead, Square and Deburr

Model 2C, 2CP, and 2CPV

PHI 2C / 2CP / 2CPV End Finishing Machines

These models are designed for smaller-diameter tubes and pipes — 0.25 to 2 inches.

Model 2C features manual clamping for easy-to-form materials and low production requirements. Model 2CP has air-cylinder clamping for higher production rates and more difficult-to-form materials. Both models have two-speed spindles, allowing you to choose the most efficient speed for the function you are performing.

The 2CPV capacities are the same as the 2CP with the addition of a variable-speed drive (0-2000 RPM) with a 3/4 HP motor and digital RPM readout / tachometer. The variable-speed motor allows the operator to select an optimal spindle speed for the material and end forming method, providing for additional control of output precision and extending blade life when deburring harder materials such as stainless steel and titanium.

2CV model is available on request for those who need the greater control of variable-speed drive but don’t want (or can’t) make available air supply for pneumatic clamping.

Options for all 2CX machines include: stand with tool cabinet, work light

Model 3CPV

PHI 3CPV Tube and Pipe End Finishing Machine

The Model 3CPV extends the range of the PHI end finishing machines to include tubes and pipes with outside diameters up to 3 inches.

As in the case of the other PHI models, flares are formed to standard 37° and 45° angles, meeting MS33584 and SAE specifications. Beads are formed within the tight specifications called for in Military Specification MS33660.

Features of the Model 3CPV include pneumatic clamping, cabinet stand with tooling shelf, and variable-speed motor. The varible-speed motor allows the operator to select an optimal spindle speed for the material and end forming method, providing for additional control of output precision and extending blade life when deburring harder materials such as stainless steel and titanium.

Options for the 3CPV include: beading up to 3″, automatic beading function, automatic flaring function, digital tachometer, moveable base, work light.

Model 8CPV

PHI Model 8CPV End Finishing Machine

Model 8CPV is the largest in the family of PHI end finishing machines and can be used to flare, bead, deburr, and square tubes or pipes with outside diameters up to 8 inches.

An air cylinder with heavy-duty linkage holds the tube or pipe firmly in place during each operation, preventing slippage and ensuring that all forming is done within appropriate specifications. Model 8CPV also features a variable-speed drive for efficient operation regardless of material or wall thickness. Hard materials such as stainless steel can be deburred at slower speeds, for example, without undue wear of the blades.

About Squaring, Deburring, & Flaring

Flared joints form liquid-tight, air-tight connections at the ends of tubing or pipe. To obtain an effective, long-lasting seal, each end of the tube or pipe must be formed to the exact shape of the matching flare fittings. Tooling supplied by PHI meets this objective, and in almost every case, the same end finishing machine can be used to perform the required squaring and deburring of the cut end of a tube — before the flare is formed. With use of a squaring and deburring head and blades, tubing and pipe can be squared and the inside and outside faces deburred and chamfered

Typical Applications

Hydraulic systems and fuel lines in the aircraft, automotive, and heating and cooling industries.

About Beading

Beading is a versatile end-finishing technique that can be applied to a variety of industrial applications. In conjunction with an o-ring, for example, beaded joints can be used to interconnect exhaust tubes or low-pressure fuel lines. Beads can also be used to dampen vibration in solid lines or to increase the effectiveness of the seal when a rubber or fabric sleeve is clamped to a metal duct.

Typical Applications

Low-pressure air, exhaust, and liquid systems in the automotive, appliance, and boating fields.
