Tube shaping machines with up to 22 tons of thrust
The AST CNC tube end forming machine is set up with six processing stations: they can be outfitted with ram stations or rotary stations for tapering, flaring, threading, rolling, closing, facing, cutting and more. Combining these technologies means being able to obtain formed and finished parts with quality equal to components with machining operations. With the AST you can also benefit from automatic consecutive head-tail operations to process both ends of the tube.
By fitting an orbital cutting device on the AST, you can eliminate a secondary cut off operation that would typically require special fixturing to position a bent part for forming.
That is a function you will appreciate day after day.
You can create everything you imagine: rolling, closing, facing cutting and more, always repeatable and with finish and quality results equal to those obtained by machining operations.
Just choose. Configure the forming machine.
Are you a new user or do you only need a refresher?
You will find all the CNC help topics on the machine: instruction manual, maintenance tutorials, exploded part drawings to identify spare parts, and a video guide with ‘how to use’ tutorials.
