The Esco COHOG Split Frame Machine has a robust stationary ring machined from 7075 aluminum alloy that is hard coated and supports a custom steel forged, heat-treated, and nickel-plated rotating ring using precision tuned eccentric bearings. Featuring new anti-deformation rounding pads to prevent thin-wall pipe and tubing from being crushed, this clamshell style machine is ideally suited for use in food and pharmaceutical process applications.
Easy to set-up using indexable tooling that squares itself to the tube O.D. with the anti-deformation pads attached, the Esco COHOG Split Frame Machine incorporates a one-piece module that mounts to the tool slide and holds a pre-angled bit of 30, 37-1/2 degree or custom angles. Pneumatic, hydraulic, and electric motors are offered, and most of the cutting inserts have multiple cutting edges for long life and are simple to replace.
