Pipe End Forming Machines | EF Series
VLB's EF series end prep machines are fast, accurate, and very versatile. They enable the end forming of pipes with high complexity, high deformation levels, and high repeatability. The sequence of tools and their linear positioning is driven by a servo motor and controlled by an easy-to-program numerical command, which guarantees movement speed and enormous precision. Our tube-end forming machines can be equipped with up to 6 forming stations, including rotary stations for specific tasks and special jobs.

The Pipe End Forming Machines EF-series are enormously versatile. They have numerical control, easy to program, and have a high capacity for storing programs, combined with a quick tool change. Suitable for high-speed assignments such as the automotive sector and for more varied assignments and shorter series such as furniture, aerospace, energy, etc.
Ease of use on maintenance
In addition to the technical possibilities, the EF tube end forming machines have also been developed with an eye on the use of operation and maintenance of the machines.
The design is compact and all components are in the design for easy access. The safety panels act as doors that release the entire front of the machine for intervention when opened.
There are no moving parts that cause high friction. All components are of high quality and have high-performance linear guides. This means that the cycle time, electricity consumption, and the need and cost of maintenance can be significantly lower.
The powerful control of the EF pipe end machining is easily programmable via the touchscreen.
The software is very intuitive, easy to program, and fully developed by our IT department to the same consistency as all other software.
From the operator's viewpoint, this facilitates the communication of instructions in a pleasant and logical way.
For example, sequences and parameters for each operation can be easily modified and saved for future use. The software also allows easy integration with tube loading and unloading systems and other production cells, such as bending machines.
The right solution for all sectors
Different sectors require adaptive solutions. VLB's EF pipe end preparation machines have different combinations of actuators, depending on the pipe and the application fully electric or hybrid. Regardless of the configuration, the level of control, repeatability, and versatility is always high and efficient!
