Case Studies

Electric Servo End Forming Machine (1003 EL) for the Tube Fabricating Industry

Dedicated to providing our clients with the highest quality tool development and machine building products and services, Wauseon Machine manufactures the model 1003 end forming machine, displayed on the left. The end forming machines are available in both hydraulic and electric construction. However, electric end forming machinery offers more efficiency and less waste than its hydraulic counterpart, making this version more environmentally friendly.

In addition, all electrical models possess the following features:

To better ensure product quality, we thoroughly inspect all machinery before any finished item is delivered to our customer. Wauseon Machine verifies the end forming machine’s center line by grinding wear plates in lock-up area, and runs a 20-hour dry cycle prior to shipping. Moreover, all manufactured components of the machine come with inspection reports prior to assembly. These comprehensive inspections guarantee that our clients receive the quality they have long come to expect from our products.

All of our 1003 EL end forming machines can be built to Charlie Edwards (CE) and Ontario Hydro certifications. Special voltages are also available with both hydraulic and electric models.

Wauseon Machine’s standard line of end forming equipment, including the model 1003 EL, offers the smallest footprint in the industry
