SelectForm® Model M Series Modular End Forming Tools - Up to 3,000 psi (207 bar)

The patented SelectForm® Model M Series Modular End Forming Tools accurately expand, reduce, bead, or flare a shape on tube ends with diameters from 0.13 in. to 3.00 in. OD (3.2 mm to 76.2 mm OD). These tools are available in three head sizes: and are designed to be easily interchangeable modules and tooling. When combined with the SelectForm® Model 400 Hydraulic Power Pack, tools can be mounted as a single-station or multi-station configuration on top of the power source.

Modular Tooling Breakdown: The modular tooling consists of two major components: the gripping and the forming modules. Mounted within each of these modules are individual sets of tooling, which can be quickly converted to different tube diameters or produce different forms.

Gripping Module: The gripping module contains a set of collets, which grips and holds the tube during the forming process. One set of collets is required for each outside tube diameter to be formed. The form shape can also affect collet requirements. For example, the collet for producing a 0.63 in. (15.9 mm) beads is different from the collet for 0.63 in. (15.9 mm) flares.

Forming Modules: Two forming modules are available, each with a convenient knob to control form length. The expansion module produces an expanded tube end or bell shape. The reduction module is used to produce reductions, beads, and flares. Mounted within each of these modules is a set of forming tooling. One set of tooling is required for each specific form size and shape you expect to produce.
