INFINITELY ADJUSTABLE EXPANSION & REDUCTION
The AVA-MATIC TUBE END FORMING MACHINE enables versatile expansion and reduction of tubular components without the need for different tools for every finished tube size. The diameter and length of expansion or reduction can be infinitely adjusted within the range of the tool in seconds, making it ideal for one-off or large volume production. Ends can be formed close to, or on, the bend of the tube without the need of additional tooling.
 
SETTING & OPERATION
The change-over between expansion and reduction can be carried out simply in approximately 30 seconds. The various sizes of tools are replaced in their tool holders within a few minutes, thereby reducing down time and increasing productivity. Setting and fine adjustment is by the handwheel and back limit stop aided by a visual scale and tool advance indicator. A heavy duty footswitch controls the operation sequence, leaving both hands free for handling the component.
 
TOOLING
 
A wide range of standard tools are available from stock and specials can be supplied to customers.
