Model No. 8 Head Flanger
The Model 8 Head Flanging Machine is used for the flanging of flat heads and dished heads. This machine also has the capability to flange conical heads up to 60 degrees slope angle. We can equip the Model 8 for head offsetting, shell offsetting and tube flanging as well.
The Model 8 has a 20 HP Main Drive Electric Motor and is very fast for the production of flat heads. For example, a circular blank of 36" diameter is flanged in 1 minute. A 144" diameter tank head is flanged in 3 minutes.
Couple the Model 8 with a 1/2" Circle Shear (Model 90) and you are able to produce many flanged-only heads during a work day. For quick and efficient production of flanged and dished heads, please consider the Model 8 Flanger and a Model 1625 Disher for production of heads as large as 96"/ 2500mm; or, a Model 8 Flanger and a 19 Series or 25 Series Dishing Machine for production of larger diameter heads.
We have offered the 1" Model 8 for about 50 years. (The 3/4" Model 7 was offered previous to the Model 8.)
