Press release date: May 20, 2013
Automation has reached the high pressure industry with Maxpro’s newest product addition, the Coning and Threading Machine. Precision cutting blades combine with the latest technology to produce the fastest and most accurate method to cone and thread high pressure tubing and nipples for high pressure applications (15,200 psi to 152,000 psi.) The Coning and Threading Machine is featured on the Maxpro website with a video that fully describes all of its features, clearly demonstrating the easy, single ended operation of the unit. For related industries, this machine plays an important part in decreasing overall production time.
