  • Patent number: 9199294
    Abstract: A corrugating unit is used which presses a first corrugation into the pipe which is moved in its longitudinal direction through the corrugating device. The spacing between the wave peaks is subsequently reduced, for obtaining a second corrugation, by a clamping unit composed of two separately arranged clamping devices resting against the pipe. The pipe provided with a first corrugation is pressed continuously by the first clamping device against a fixed point realized by the second clamping device, which, in the position of operation, is arranged, in relation to the clamping device, in axial direction behind the first clamping device. Both clamping devices are removed cyclically from the pipe and are moved back into a new position in the opposite direction of the direction of movement of the pipe and, in this new position, again rest in the two different areas against the pipe.

  • Publication number: 20140305178
    Abstract: A device for imparting an undulation to a smooth pipe (1) composed of metal which has wave peaks and wave valleys extending transversely relative to the longitudinal direction of the pipe. The device has an undulating unit (2) with a protrusion which rotates in the circumferential direction in the position of operation for producing the undulation. Arranged in front of the undulating unit (2) is a guide sleeve (5) for guiding the smooth pipe (1) moved in its longitudinal direction. A support sleeve (7) is arranged immediately behind the undulating unit (2) which tightly surrounds the undulated pipe (6) which leaves the undulating unit (2) in the pulling off direction without impairing the movement of the undulated pipe (6) in its longitudinal direction.

  • Publication number: 20070289354
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for feeding fasteners with at least two parallel boundary surfaces to a processing device includes lining up the fasteners in the same orientation by a feeder. The fasteners move through a conveying duct to a loading device arranged on a processing device. Individual conveying steps are separated from one another in time. At each conveying step a column of multiple fasteners in the same orientation, with their parallel boundary surfaces resting on one another, is conveyed by the feeder to the loading device by introducing air into the conveying duct. The loading device has, adjoining a magazine output end, a loading duct extending perpendicular to a magazine longitudinal axis, terminating in a processing device working duct. The loading duct has a conveying mechanism which conveys individual fasteners emerging from the magazine into the working duct one at a time.
