The BLM E-SHAPE 10 TON CNC TUBE END FORMING SYSTEM is a Compact CNC tube end forming machine with a punch table that works horizontally. No overhead structures to cause interferences. A large number of forming tools can be used in tube processing. Do, really do, everything you need, without limits.
Growing, up to ten processing stations
Tapering, flaring, closing, facing, cutting and more. Choose the processes that you need and configure the E-SHAPE tube forming machine. The machine is set up for ten processing stations and may be freely equipped with ram stations, rotary tools or cutting tools. By combining these technologies, you can obtain parts with repeatable end forms, finish and quality. If you want, with the E-SHAPE you can also benefit from automatic consecutive ‘head-tail’ operation to process both ends of the tube.
Thousands of shapes
Having 10 tons of force means being able to perform complex shapes end forming in thick walled materials or stainless steel tube. One-of-a-kind shape freedom.
Many possible configurations. Choose yours
Choose the most suitable configuration of the tube end forming machine E-SHAPE for your job.
And you are even faster!
Being able to work with a rigid, horizontal punch holder table with 10 available punches does not mean working slower. Single punch advancement and variable length strokes can be exploited to optimize the cycle times without trade-offs.
You can also trim on the machine
By fitting an orbital cutting device on the tube forming machine E-SHAPE, 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.
All-electric operation, much easier
All electric axis control for all tube forming machine movements (clamping and force control and force modulation) provides accurate tolerances and maximum repeatability.
All setup parameters are saved with the part program.
Simplified wiring and the elimination of hydraulics reduces the maintenance requirements and reduces wear on tube forming components. The obvious advantage is that the machine is safer and more reliable.
"All-Electric" technology means quiet and clean machines that operate with a major energy savings through reduced energy consumption.
Easy to learn. Very easy to use
Programming job sequences? Very easy. Simply select the punch you want to use and the program will define the most appropriate default settings based on the tool.
