I was asked to make “pipe clamps” and “collars” for 8 16” OD pipes.
I designed the “pipe clamps” (1st picture) like a shaft collar with a compression fit. These are to stop the 3000 lb. pipes from sliding into a hole when placed upright.
The “collars” (2nd picture, and on the right), I used the same fastening system as above, but these guys have a different purpose… They are meant to clamp on the top of the pipe, and to attach 3 legs at 120 degrees of each other for “plumbing up”.
Then, they asked me to go ahead and design feet (3rd picture) for the “plumbing up” legs, and produce them as well.
8- sets of “pipe clamps” for the bases,
8- sets of “plumbing up” collars,
24- feet for the legs
and I plasma cut all 278 pieces it took to make all 40 finished parts.
