Technical Characteristics
1. Our steel pipe drilling machine is a sort of gantry movable CNC drilling equipment. With a shorter machine bed, this CNC drilling machine is space saving.
2. The worktable of our boiler pipe drilling machine is made of high-quality cast iron, thus it has excellent shock absorption performance and is not easy to deform.

10. The pneumatic components are from Taiwan Airtac company.
11. The centralized lubricating device is made by American BIJUR.
12. The CNC system is the German Siemens 802D SL model.
13. Other outsourced components are all from famous manufacturers in China or other countries. (See details in the "outsourced components list".)

Structure Configuration and Technical Description
I. Worktable

1. The worktable of our steel pipe drilling machine is made of high quality cast iron. It has excellent shock absorption performance and is not easy to deform.
2. There are T slots on the worktable used for locating and fixing the positioning pinch devices. There are 4 T slots arranged along the X axis direction with interval distance of about 300mm and there are 31 along the Y axis direction with interval distance of about 200mm. (Quantity of the T slots and the interval distance can be customized.)
3. The worktable has a coolant recycling slot facilitating the coolant to flow back to the coolant tank.
4. On one side of the worktable, there are two indexers which can move up and down used for turning the pipe.
5. There are two heavy-duty linear guides on the left and right side of the worktable respectively. Between the two linear guides on each side, there is a Germany-imported helical rack which is used together with the anti-backlash gear to drive the movable gantry to move along the X axis direction.
6. Between the two linear guides on each side of the worktable, there is also a hydraulic clamping bar which can be clamped through the hydraulic clamping cylinder. The movable gantry and the worktable are connected together to improve the rigidity and stability of the whole machine.

II. Movable Gantry and the Slide Carriage
1. The movable gantry of our steel pipe drilling machine contains the gantry body and the base. Both the gantry body and the base are made of welded steel structures processed with aging treatment to remove stress.
2. The gantry body is fastened on the base by bolts and the base is connected to the drilling machine body with linear guide ways. On the gantry base there are reducer casing made in Germany, anti-backlash gear and servo motor. The servo motor can drive the anti-backlash gear to make the movable gantry move along the X axis direction. On the gantry base located at each side of the worktable, there is a hydraulic clamping cylinder which can clamp the hydraulic clamping bar on both sides of the worktable. In this way, the movable gantry and the worktable are connected together to guarantee high drilling accuracy and extend the service life of the machine components.
3. On one side of the gantry beam there are two linear guide ways. The ball screw and servo motor used for driving the slide carriage to move along the Y axis direction are installed between the two linear guide ways. In this way, the force distributed to the guide way and the screw is proper. This design not only helps extend the service life of the guide way and the screw, but also helps increase the running speed of the slide carriage.
4. The sliding plate and the drilling tool head are installed on the slide carriage. At the same time, the slide carriage guides the vertical movement of sliding plate.

III. Drilling Power Device
1. The drilling power device of our steel pipe drilling machine is made up of the sliding plate, drilling tool head, linear guide way, balance cylinder, etc. The drilling tool head is fixed on the sliding plate and is connected to the slide carriage through the linear guide way on the sliding plate. The servo motor and ball screw drive the sliding plate to move up and down so as to allow the drilling heads to drill holes on pipes.
2. The drilling tool head consists of the spindle holder, spindle, air and hydraulic unclamping cylinder, spindle motor, the synchronous belt pulley, etc. We adopt the BT50 (7: 24) spindle which has an automatic tool pulling device inside. The spindle is able to rotate with the synchronous belt driven by the spindle motor. The rotating speed of the spindle can be adjusted steplessly to fit for drilling heads with different diameters.
3. The balance cylinder is used to balance the weight of the drilling power device, reduce the axial load of the ball screw and extend the ball screw’s service life.
4. The spindle motor has rated power of 7.5kW and rotating speed of 30~1200r/min. The rotating speed and feeding amount can be adjusted according to the pipe material and hole size.

IV. Indexing Device
1. The indexing device installed on our steel pipe drilling machine can hold and turn the pipes so as to facilitate drilling holes on different sides of the pipes.
2. The indexing device is comprised of the indexer, self-centering scroll chuck and the moving mechanism.
3. The indexer can be operated manually and its turning indexing accuracy is ±0.5 °. There are scales on the indexer.
4. The self-centering chuck is installed on the indexer to hold the pipe for turning.
5. The moving mechanism can move the indexer and the self-centering scroll chuck up and down vertically. The vertical position of the indexer is adjusted through the trapezoidal screw, while the horizontal position of the indexer can be adjusted by bolts or manually.
6. According to the pipe diameter, there are two types of indexing devices available. The first type is for pipe with diameter of 30~200mm, the second type is for pipe with diameter of 200~400mm. The two types of indexing devices are installed abreast on one side of the worktable.

V. Positioning Pinch Device
1. The positioning pinch device of our steel pipe drilling machine is used to locate, fix and pinch the pipe for CNC drilling.
2. There are three kinds of positioning pinch devices respectively for pipes with diameters of 30~100mm, 100~200mm and 200~400mm.
3. The positioning pinch device consists of the supporting bracket, pinching cylinder, and the pinching rod. The worktable is able to hold several positioning pinch devices of the same size. The operator can adjust the distance between each positioning pinching device based on practical need. The detailed structure is shown in the figure.
4. Normally, positioning pinch devices for pipes with diameters of 30~100mm and 200~400mm are both installed on the worktable. The two types of positioning pinch devices are interchangeable according to actual needs.
5. Let’s take positioning pinch device for pipes with diameter of 200~400mm as an example, suppose the pipe is 1m long, the worktable is able to hold 5 pipes at the same time. Under the same condition, the worktable can hold 10 pipes with diameter of 100~200mm or 20 pipes with diameter of 30~100mm. If the pipe is longer than 1m, the quantity of the pipes the worktable can hold will reduce.

VI. Chain Chip Removal System
1. the chain chip removal system of our steel pipe drilling machine is used to remove the waste chips during drilling to the waste material hopper.
2. Since the whole worktable is large, the waste chips are not able to fall into the chain chip removal system automatically. Therefore, they need to be collected into the removal system manually.

VII. Hydraulic System
1. The hydraulic system supplies power for the movable gantry, hydraulic clamping cylinder on the slide carriage and the balance cylinder of the drilling tool head.
2. The hydraulic system of our steel pipe drilling machine is mainly made up of oil tank, oil pump, control valve, oil level/temperature gage, pressure gage, etc.
3. The hydraulic system has overpressure unlading function.
4. Working pressure of the hydraulic system is 6Mpa.

VIII. Pneumatic System
1. The pneumatic system adopts AIRTAC products which has stable performance.
2. Compressed air pressure: ≥0.5MPa

IX. Lubricating System
1. Centralized lubrication and dispersing lubrication are both available.
2. For some movable parts, we adopt centralized lubricating device produced by American BIJUR for lubricating.
3. Bearings are lubricated manually.

X. Cooling System
Outside cooling is used to cool the drilling heads of our steel pipe drilling machine. On the worktable there is coolant recycling slot allowing the coolant to flow back to the coolant tank for recycling.
