Model 3212-SA-2P Tube End Forming Machine

Two palm button semi-automatic form cycle, this economically priced unit is ideal for quality production of tubing that requires end finishing.  This unit  will reduce, expand, bead, flare or flange.  Simply utilizing the proper tooling, many shapes take form.  This rugged and powerful unit generates up to 30 tons of clamping and forming forces.  It is completely self contained with quality hydraulics and electronics.  An air supply is used to operate the tube stop assembly.  This assembly in conjunction with the micro switches will insure precise form depth or height.  The powerful hydraulic clamp assembly will insure that the tube being held for forming will not slip and the surface will be mar free.  Two 24 volt palm buttons control all hydraulic movement.  A programmable logic control system allows for manual or semi-automatic form cycle.  A typical production run would be as follows:
