A custom designed machine developed for the automatic production of tank ends used in the automotive industry . The machine carries out 3 operations, vertical bending and inward flanging by means of servo driven slides and trimming the formed tank end to fit the tank cylinder perfectly every time. The blank and finished parts are also loaded/ unloaded by means of servo drives.
The machine is equipped with CNC controls that enable the loading of CAD files which are translated into the machine program automatically. The machine sets all the required parameters to make the parts. The reduction in set up time, overall efficiency and less complicated tooling (no need for copying cams) helps this machine pay for itself.
