 The metal cover is an attractive accessory for the metal furniture legs too. This design not only protects its end, avoiding damage to the legs and the floor but also makes the legs more elegant.

The Pipe Processing Helper: Tube Taper Machine

 There are three types of tube taper machines from us: manual tube taper machine, semi-automatic tube taper machine, and full automatic tube taper machine.

What are Their Differences and Advantages?

We will introduce the differences between the three types of tube taper machines mainly by these two sides: the operation and the efficiency.

By this information, you may see that the forming speed of the manual tube taper machine is the quickest, while it needs a full manual operation. The full automatic tube taper machine can process more pipes per day than the other types and is also the most labor-saving one. The semi-automatic tube taper machine processes fewer metal pipes at a slower speed, but it may make a great effect when you want to control the material loading in forming.
