K20 Roll Motor

For 900 & 1300 Series Expanders

Download Datasheet

Product Details

The K20 is a heavy duty pneumatic torque Controlled motor for the expansion of tubes used in Heat Exchangers, Condensers and Coolers.

K20 pneumatic rolling motor is designed for the fast and accurate torque controlled rolling of tubes from 1/4" – 1/2" OD (6.3mm – 12.7mm OD). This uniquely designed tool with automatic reverse, expands tubes to a preset torque, at which point it automatically trips over to its reverse rotation, backing itself out of the tube ready for the next expansion.

The process is fast and effortless making it the ideal tool for production rolling applications. Our K-20 Models are available in 500, 1800 & 2500 rpm's (see chart for suggested Tube Diameters). All models are furnished with their own carrying case & instruction manual.
