Vertical 4-roller spinning machines for producing aluminum wheels

The vertical spinning machines type VFM 600 and VFM 800 are particularly designed for producing aluminum wheels starting from forged or cast preforms. Said machines possess 4 forming rollers which may be programmed independently from each other. The resulting design with a total of 8 CNC axes permits extremely short setting times. In connection with the amply dimensioned and easily accessible working range, set-up times are reduced to a minimum. Manual adjustments are not required. Loading the machines, for example, may be achieved through a robot with double gripper. After forming, the first gripper unloads the completed workpiece and the new preform is placed onto the tool in the same operation. Preforms and completed rims may be picked up or deposited outside the machine at any defined point of supply
