Skiving of external or internal layer of certain types of hydraulic rubber hoses is needed before crimping takes place. For that purpose simple manual or semi-automatic skiving machines were developed. Equipped with skiving knifes adjusted to hoses nominal diameter.
Process of inserting fittings into hoses can also be mechanised. For that purpose inserting fittings machines with pneumatic drive were designed. Such machines reduce assembly time and are very often integrated with multifunctional machines used for multi series production.
