Tube Extending Device
The Gemini is controlled by means of the supplied software, which enables virtual representation of the executed process. This means that complex processes can be implemented quickly and easily. The tube is manually inserted and held by a quick-acting clamp fixture, which can be used over a large diameter range.
The infrared heating enables an adjustable constant energy transfer, which heats the tube equally both inside and out; this results in uniform stretching of the molecules in the tube, so that burning of the tube is excluded. The result is uniform stretching over the complete tube diameter.
The housing of the tube stretching machine has been specially designed for use in clean rooms. The use of compressed air has been dispensed with, and the machine has been largely encapsulated. The stainless steel surfaces of the housing are easy to clean.
