FORMAX® Forming Machines
FORMAX 2000 design combines Zero-Clearance Heading Slide guiding, straight across transfer, sealed heading slide liners, precision linear feed, system quick-change offline setup, and advanced computer controls into a forming system that delivers close-toleranced parts to net or near net shape.
FORMAX PLUS cold former meets the challenge of difficult-to-transfer and tight-tolerance jobs with the patented Pick-Move-Place transfer. The FORMAX PLUS cold forming machine has all the standard features of the FORMAX 2000 cold forming machines such as Zero Clearance Heading slide guiding, sealed heading slide liners, and precision linear feed, but the FORMAX Plus also has increased forming tonnage, larger cutoff capacity, and expanded die space.
FORMAX PLUS Cold Forming Machines for Large Parts are especially effective for forming complex shapes that require superior tolerance control. Proven FORMAX features, like Pick-Move-Place Transfer, and Zero-Clearance Heading Slide Guiding give FORMAX PLUS for Large Parts "net shape" forming capability. These large cold forming machines also bring an entirely new breakthrough in automated machine setup, changeover and monitoring. With push button control one operator can make a complete changeover in just 30 minutes.
LeanFX combines the high performance standards of FORMAX® with the ease of operation and competitive pricing demanded by todays global marketplace. Many of the same innovative, production-proven features that were introduced on FORMAX, are standard on LeanFX, including linear feed, Zero-Clearance Heading Slide, straight-across transfer and sealed heading slide liners. This global machine can produce high-quality fasteners and parts faster than any cold former on the market.
FORMAX Warm Forming machine has all the standard FORMAX features such as zero clearance heading slide, precision linear feed, sealed heading slide liners and the Formapak Quick-Change System. A FORMAX Warm Former can be either "prepared for warm forming" with basic specials, or customized based on the part application requirements and materials formed. This customization is important to have the right machine for the part application, not just a machine simply with a standard heater added.
FORMAX XXV is a new 25 mm cutoff version of FORMAX. It combines the best features from small and large FORMAX like expanded die-space, high production speeds, pick-move-place transfer, zero clearance heading slide guiding, sealed heading slide liners, and precision linear feed, with all new technology including servo controlled adjustments and a robotic tool changer. This tool changer accesses an external setup fixture to make changes automatically without requiring a person to enter the die area of the machine. The XXV is available in standard and short stroke models with five, six, and seven dies.
