A process step that can be seen as an excessive and unnecessary cost of production is offline tool presetting. Without this step, however, an operator may have to depend on an expensive but less accurate presetter which can cause complications and slow down the facility’s productivity.
Hy-Lok is proud to offer solutions for all your valve and fitting needs. This includes our full range of presetting tools to enhance your tube system installations. Hy-Lok offers three types of presetting tools: manual presetting tools, hydraulic presetting tools, and an electric automatic presetting tool. Each of our tools is specialized for their respective applications.
Hy-Lok is proud to offer a proprietary manual presetting tool. Our manual presetting tool allows quick and easy presetting of the ferrules to the tube for sizes 1/8″ O.D. – 1″ O.D. This tool mounts easily into a vise and allow the installer to preset the ferrules by hand tightening with the appropriate size wrench.
Hy-Lok’s hydraulic presetting tool is designed to provide consistent presetting of ferrules and minimizes the effort needed by an installer in cases where many connections or heavy wall tubes are being installed. The manual presetting tool is available in two sizes to meet customer needs. The EZY MAT-1 covers tube O.D. sizes from 1/2″ – 1″. The EZY MAT-2 covers tube O.D. sizes from 1/2″ – 2″.
Hy-Lok’s electric automatic presetting tool makes ferrule set presetting virtually effortless. With the touch of a button, ferrules are preset to the tube to enhance connection installation. Interchangeable dies allow this unit to cover tube O.D. size ranges from 1/2″ to 2″ fractional and metric O.D. sizes from 4mm to 42mm.
