Winton's Model DH25 is a PLC controlled programmable tube end former. This end former has the ability to produce single and double hit end forms. The DH25 utlilizes a hydraulic clamp and ram ensuring that the Cp and Cpk stay on target. All cylinders, switches, relays, and valves are common in the United States, Europe and Asia.
Tube end formers typically produce a 37 degree flare, bead, double flare, or bump O-ring groove type end form. Single hit end formers are the most common and tooling is available to form a bead, expand and reduce as well as form a single flare to the end of the tube. Double hit end forms can take the shape of a double flare or a 2 stage expansion and reduction. You can utilize a die change which will enable the operator to form the end of a tube that requires 3 hits such as Aeroquip bump O-ring groove which is common with 37 degree flaring. Aerospace often utilizes double hit end forming due to the additional rigidity it produces.
