Sanderson TPMLx

Tube Perforating Machine Linear, External - Automated

The Sanderson TPMLx is one of the newest additions to our product range. It combines the radial flexability of linear perforation action (TPML) with external round-hole and slot perforation technology (TPM4) to create a versatile machine which can perforate a different number of holes around a tube with a few button presses. It is enhanced by an automatic load/unload system in conjunction with our AFH loader. Designed specifically for automated mass production of tubes up to 4" in diameter and up to 800mm long, the TPMLx shares the same rapid cycle times, minimal tube distortion and burring, and easy programming and storing of new parts as other Sanderson Machine Tools. 


Every Sanderson TPMLx is made to order.
