Time-efficiency and quality of the end results play a crucial role in efficient forming processes of tube endings. To achieve this, the high-tech machine manufacturer transfluid has completely re-engineered its „t form UMR“ forming machine. The proven benefits of the unit were kept and more added, to reduce the process time and achieve better surface results, irrespective of whether you are working with seamless tubes or tubes with longitudinal welding seams.

Electronic pre-selection saves time and manpower
The transfluid solutions shape tubes either in a rolling or rotational process. For instance, the bead rolling machine uses a rolling process. That makes it possible to achieve various forming results on the extremity of the tube, with high-precision reduction over a long distance, and amongst other things it can create a thread with the rolling system. The rotational process is on the other hand able to carry out multiple flaring at the end of the tube, at an angle to the diameter between 20 and 90 or contoured, for instance ball-shaped.

„In the past it was necessary to set stops and strokes manually for both machines, in order to achieve good geometries on the surface. The latest generation of machines „t form UMR“ 628, 642 and 2090 only require a very simple tool substitution by the operator, which doesn“t even take five minutes“, says Stefanie Flaeper about the benefits of the latest tube forming machines. Now the equipment includes a complete selection of flaring-geometries to choose from electronically. The position of the stop, as well as all the strokes and operations are controlled servo-electrically and can be retrieved via a touch panel.
The material that is processed and the type of forming that is required are crucial for the exact timing of the process. The machines completes the process almost independently, when it is possible to retrieve the size of the tube together with the required process parameters. In each case the clamping length for the production process are between 1x and 1.5x the diameter of the tube. This way the operator always has the option to carry out the forming after the bending steps. With this solution transfluid makes it possible to have a more economical production of complex forming geometries and flaring with polished sealing surfaces in one single forming step.

Tube forming with automatic tool detection

Reliably brought into form: newly developed axial tube forming machine REB 645 by transfluid

Workpieces of a special end form geometry are in demand again and again. Whether for the initial production or repeated precision: Ensuring exact parameters is necessary for an efficient implementation. Thus, the solution finders of transfluid have developed a solution with automatic tool detection for tube forming. Hence, the new axial tube forming machine t form REB 645 allows for tube end forming with fast tool changes for complex geometries and extreme degrees of forming.

From the barcode to the better result
The starting point is a barcode scanning system. Using this system, the operation data of a tube with individual barcode can be easily read – for an end forming for example. For this purpose, all tools of the tube forming machine, which is equipped with 6 forming stations, have sensors (RFID). This ensures that the right programme and the appropriate tools are available. If the automatic inspection unit detects a wrong tool, the operating panel with data memory displays this information immediately. Here, the identification for the correct tool for the change is indicated as well. Using the convenient quick-connecting system of the transfluid solution with fork for fixing and locking bolt for securing the mount, the machine operator can directly change the tool and precisely perform the tube end forming afterwards.

Certainly flexible and reliable
The REB 645 allows the axial forming of tubes with diameters from 6 to 45 mm. By means of a servomotor, the tool sequence is positioned horizontally and vertically. In addition, rolling stations for specific forming processes can be integrated. Upon request, the tube forming machine can be equipped with electric or hydraulic numeric drives. In case of extremely short cycle times, these forming procedures can also be carried out gradually in transfer systems. With the new tube forming machine, transfluid ensures even more reliable processes and more flexibility for individual requirements.

Pipe forming technology is a complex matter – with ever smaller tolerances for advanced new projects from the different industries. These companies with their fresh ideas are, of course united by the wish of transferring the new product to serial production safely and reliably at once after development. This also applies to high-tech machine constructor transfluid (http://www.tube-processing-machines.com/homepage.html), which uses its pipe processing technologies for research in its internal prototyping department. This is not only about sampling of its own new developments, e.g. in the area of tool technology. Companies without machinery of their own can have their pilot series analysed and precisely improved at transfluid.

„Support in this area is in higher demand than expected. Therefore, we have expanded our research and prototyping department once again just recently,“ says Stefanie Flaeper, managing director at transfluid. „We can perform diverse tests on components and tools with pipe diameters up to 65 mm here.“ A CNC-controlled type SRM rolling forming machine and two axial forming machines are used for this with a forming power of up to 25 tons. The entire process chain can be implemented with an additional CNC-controlled pipe bending machine and an orbital pipe separation system – to ensure that requirements, e.g. regarding burr formation, can be met.

Tests and documentation for light-weight construction components and high-strength materials as well
For specific customer projects, the experts in the department are testing new forming geometries and tool concepts for serial maturity and quality. The transfluid team relies, among others, on a tactile and visual measuring system for components and tools. The interim results up to the certain result are documented reliably.

The transfluid experts have special experience as a technology leader and initial developer of incremental pipe forming, which permits partial rotation-symmetrical forming of pipes made of high- and very-high-strength materials. In particular review and assessment with light-weight components and high-strength materials is possible as well. Depending on geometry, this can even be done tool-independently. Thus, the company can offer the pilot series or prototype production particularly cost-optimised.
