R&B Machining, Inc. has a new line of all-electric tube end forming machines. The eRB80 IO+IO is the first in the line of ECOForm™ all-electric, digitally controlled, servo tube end forming machines which eliminates the use of hydraulic oil and reduces operating costs. The eRB80 IO+IO handles tube diameters up to 80mm (3.1”) with standard tooling and up to 100mm (3.9”) with heavy duty tooling with maximum wall thickness of 2mm (0.079”). These machines offer velocity and force control for precision forming, while maintaining the same speed and force capabilities of traditional hydraulic machines.
R&B’s tube end forming machines are used for a variety of applications, including precision sizing, diameter expansions or reductions, ram forming, flaring, notching and shearing. Base machine models are available in 80mm, 150mm and 250mm tube diameter capacities with several options available, allowing customers to customize machines to meet specific requirements. Machines are available in single or multi-head configurations.
