Roller: power and precision at your disposal


Roller: power and precision at
your disposal.
 

Nothing like the roller can allow you to create complex geometries in an extremely precise and repeatable way.

Trim everything in the machine faster

Trim everything in the machine faster. 

By fitting an orbital cutting device, you can avoid part reworking which is typically required when pre-bent tube must be aligned to the forming operation. 


Forming on both ends of the tube in automatic mode

 

Formed on both ends at once. 

Reduce the cycle time.

With the automatic head and tail management, you get the finished part formed on both ends immediately.

Special protective window for safety during laser cutting

Choose the safety
for your job.

The AST is a system with CE marking designed according to the strictest safety standards. The two-hand activation control prevents the operator from encountering the clamp when clamping the part. 

The work area is completely closed. The safety door with sensors is equipped with a large Plexiglas window to control all stages of the work cycle. The clamp pre-closure system allows the workpiece to be always positioned safely.
