Model No. 8T Tube Flanger
The Model 8T Tube Flanging Machine is used for the flanging of tubes. The 8T Upper Tube Flanging Roll has a knuckle radius built in to the Roll. The tube is loaded horzontally. The end of the tube that is to be flanged is placed into the machine. The other end of the tube is supported by a Tailstock Device. After the tube is flanged, it can be removed from the machine; or, if it is required that the other end of the tube should be flanged, then the flanged tube is removed from the machine, the Tailstock Device is moved forward by actuation of the Carriage Cylinder, the tube reinserted into the machine, then flanged.
The Model 8T has a 20 HP Main Drive Electric Motor.
The maximum flange height that can be achieved on the Model 8T Tube Flanger is about 4" / 100mm.
We normally construct this machine with a 79" / 2000mm maximum diameter capability. Larger diameter tubes can be flanged on this machine by placing a spacer under the Base of the Machine, or between the Base of the Machine and the Machine Head.
