Wheel flow forming machine

Nihon Spindle VW1910E

By Flow-Forming the rim section of aluminum weels, it achieves the improvement of product strength and weight reduction, which is not possible by only turning process.

Main Characteristics

  • Each roller unit has its individual control axis to allow overlapped process for cycle time reduction.
  • The axial position of each roller can be easily adjusted with NC program.
  • By an optional software, monitoring roller thrust and main spindle motor output are available for cycle time reduction and quality managemant.
