In flow forming, the two process variants forward and reverse flow forming are distinguished.
They are discriminated by the particular direction of plastic material flow. In forward flow forming, material flow is in parallel to the axial roller feed. The part of the blank not yet subject to material flow is pushed forward by the rollers’ action. Blanks used are cups whose bottoms or internal flanges are pressed onto the free end of the mandrel via the forces exerted by the tailstock and a pressing plate.
We are one of the leading manufacturers of Flow Formed Tubes & Components for cylinder and other usage. We are also producing components for Civilian application. We have a 3 Roller Flow Forming Machine with forward Stroke & Reverse Stroke with maximum Outer Diameter of 810mm. We are in the process of adding 2 more state of the art Flow Forming machines & the same shall be completely commissioned, Tubes can be produced with as low as 0.30mm Thickness with an overall accuracy of 10 microns.
