BLM Group’s E-FORM tube end forming machine now has a full CNC electric rolling device, Click image to enlargeBLM Group’s E-FORM tube end forming machine now has a full CNC electric rolling device, providing maximum precision and repeatability in part production. The punches of the E-FORM reach up to 10 tons of force, molding tubes up to 30mm in diameter from materials such as copper, aluminum, iron or stainless steel.

It’s nine processing stations handle shaping, rolling, butting, cutting and can be configured to the user’s particular needs. The top portion of the machine is obstacle-free and able to accommodate very complex three-dimensional geometries.

Since all of these operations can be performed in a single pass without having to remove the workpiece from the machine, cycle times are significantly reduced. Edges may also be trimmed directly in the machine, and the CNC automatically adjusts the cutting position. 

Equipped with BLM GROUP’s VGP2D software, programming is extremely easy. Users select the punch they want to use and, by default, the VGP2D will automatically program the most adequate values.
