Forming Tools

Application:

Tool design:

ECOROLL® Forming Tools can expand, reduce or flange tubeends as well as expand bushings to fit. This process uses plastic deformation to change a component’s shape without cutting or to expand a workpiece that fits over another.

Forming tools are specially designed and constructed per application. Various tool shanks are available.

The tools are designed to be used with conventional machines, such as drill presses, lathes or milling machines, as well as CNC-controlled lathes or machining centers. After the premachining process, parts can be formed and/or fitted in one setting. Regarding expansion: the material’s elongation at fracture must always be greater than the desired expansion. Regarding reduction: the tools can achieve a 5% cylindrical or tapered reduction of tube ends. The amount of reduction depends on the material’s physical properties.

Tool and process advantages: ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

Quick cycle time Adjustable expansion diameter Machine in-feed controls the expansion diameter Increases material strength by cold working Produces extremely smooth surfaces Processed components are fluid and gas tight Easy replacement of wear parts Optional elastic safety stop

Inquiries and orders: Please send us your component drawings or samples of the parts you wish to form along with material specifications and properties.
