It is not advisable to run thinner material on the Model 4T Flanger. Please inquire about flanging thinner materials.
3/8" / 10 mm
Can the Model 4T do thicker material?
No. Unless the material is aluminum or another soft material, do not exceed 3/8" / 10 mm.
Standard 4T Pressure Cylinder
Optional Small-Diameter 4T Pressure Cylinder
20" / 510 mm
15" / 375 mm
Can the Model 4T flange smaller diameter heads?
The machine can be modified for work pieces smaller than 15" / 375 mm. Please inquire if you have further questions.
72" / 1830 mm
Can the Model 4T flange larger diameter tubes?
Yes, A spacer can be placed under the machine base so as to raise the machine higher to work larger diameters. Or, the machine can be modified at our factory for larger diameter work.
10" / 250 mm
Can the Model 4T flange smaller length tubes?
Yes the tailstock device can be modified; or, short length tubes can be accommodated by using a holding system that is built into the pressure cylinder.
60" / 1525 mm
Can the Model 4T flange longer length tubes?
Yes. The machine would need to be equipped with longer upper channels in order to flange longer length tubes. Depending on the overall length and weight of the tube, it may be needful that a foot is placed on the end-plate of the upper channels which extends to the floor.
Standard Knuckle Radius
A 1/8" / 3 mm knuckle radius up to a 3/16" / 5 mm knuckle radius Upper Tube Flanging Roll would be best for thinner material, with a knuckle radius of about 1/4" / 6 mm to 3/8" / 10 mm for 1/4" / 6 mm material, and a knuckle radius of 1/2" / 13 mm to 3/4" / 19 mm for 3/8" / 10 mm material. Depending on the application of the flanged tube in your product, we would suggest a knuckle radius to thickness ratio of at least 1:1, in many cases it may be preferable for this ratio to be 2:1.
Minimum Knuckle Radius
1/16" / 1.5 mm
This knuckle radius is only suitable for thin material. In certain cases the Model 4T can use a smaller knuckle radius. Please inquire if you have need of a smaller knuckle radius.
Maximum Knuckle Radius
1" / 25 mm
Please inquire if you would like to flange with a knuckle radius of up to about 1 1/2" / 38 mm to as much as 2" / 50 mm.
