AST30
Tube end-forming machine with
up to 8 tons of thrust.

Choose the configuration that best suits your needs.

Evaluate the ideal solution for you, depending on the work you want to do. 

AST30 - Hydraulic end-forming machine for tubes up to 40 mm in diameter and thrust up to 80 kN

6 fixed passes

AST30 - Hydraulic end-forming machine for tubes up to 40 mm in diameter and thrust up to 80 kN

5 rams+ 1 rotary tool

Single punch advancement tube end-former

All the power you need, only
when you need it.
 

The AST30 can be equipped with a wide variety of ram tools to perform tapering, expanding, reducing, facing, cutting, flange insertion, deburring, single or double flare jobs. 

The single punch advancement maximizes feed speed and eliminates constraints around the clamping area to increase part feasibility and efficiency.  


Focus on feasibility. 

Forming on both ends of the tube in automatic mode


Form both ends at once.

Reduce cycle time. With the automatic head and tail management, you are able to form both ends of the part simultaneously.  

Quick ram tooling change on tube end-forming machines


Quick ram tool change. 

Exchange ram tools in no time at all with the efficient quick connection method and be ready for your next production run.

Orbital scoring system on all-electric tube end-forming machines.

And what about trimming?
Do it on the 
machine.
 

Perform the scoring or cut-off operation directly on the machine in a simple, fast and clean way. Avoid annoying part reworking which is typical of pre-bent parts that must be aligned for the forming operation. 


Tube end-forming machine clamp

 

Optimal position.
No rejects.

The part is positioned simply and safely in the clamp, increasing the repeatability and eliminating rejects and defects on the tube by using the pre-clamping system.

Choose the safety
for your job.

AST30 is CE certified and designed to the strictest safety standards.

The two-hand activation control prevents the operator from coming into contact with the clamp when loading the part.

The work area is completely closed. The safety-interlocked door is equipped with a large Plexiglas window to control all stages of the work cycle.

The electro-pneumatic clamping device allows the workpiece to be positioned safely at all times.


PLC control of the AST30 end-forming machine

 

Easy to learn.
Very easy to use.
 

The PLC, with Siemens programming terminals, can automatically manage the machine ensuring maximum efficiency with no need for manual tuning. 

Choose automated solutions
and work 24/7.

Integrate your machine with one of the many automatic loading solutions available:
from simple automatic loaders to vibrating feeders to pre-load connector 
fittings, and robotic handling systems.
