Rotary Spin Form Machines
Available in Electric or Hydraulic, the Overton Rotary Spin Form Machine is one of the most flexible use machines on the end forming market. With a size capacity of ½” up to 6” OD, the OSF-6000 has one of the largest OD tube ranges in a standard machine. If you are utilizing a larger OD or a piece that needs a little more power, Overton has an option for that as well. Whether the job is small or large, Overton has what it takes to transform your fabrication into a more productive job.
Ram End Form Machines
The Overton Ram End Form Machine is a versatile piece of equipment for any tube fabricator. Available with an optional single hit, double hit, or five station indexing head to make sure you have the stations available to complete a piece in a single setup. Capable of holding a tube up to 6” OD, you get plenty of flexibility in the size ranges this machine can provide. In addition to the standard Ram End Form Machine, Overton also designs and builds custom tube end form machines.
End Trim Machines
Do you have a tube end form that needs a precision trim to meet specifications? This Overton Machine is custom built to meet this exact application. When the quality of the end of your tube is critical to your operation, such as robotic welding, this trim machine will be the workhorse of your operation. Capable of trimming up to a 6″ OD tube in our standard setup, our machine can also stand up to larger requirements, up to 14″ OD. If you need to add precision trimming to the end of your tube, Overton is the one to get it done.
Hydraulic Presses are a crucial machine in many manufacturing processes. Over the last 15 years, Overton has developed a high quality machine design in both C-Frame and 4-Post configurations. All feature a 4-Post guided ram for superior machine capability and repeatability. Overton currently offers press tonnages from 5 ton all the way up to 100 ton, and all our hydraulic presses are available with servo electric controls.
The Ruby Series Spin-Trim Machine lets you form and cut your tubes on the same machine with a quick tooling change. And you can keep your area clean with its built-in scrap ejection system.
Run more part numbers in smaller quantities. The Ruby Series Spin-Trim Machine accommodates tubes from 1” to 3” diameter and a tube wall thickness up to 0.083”, depending on the application and tube material.
Get the right size fast with tighter tolerances for joining or welding. Expand, curl, or reduce.
The Ruby Series I/O Sizer lets you change tube sizes quickly without changing tooling, and its quiet operation allows you to rapid fire your production at lower decibels.
The Ruby Series I/O sizer goes from ¾” to 3” diameter and accommodates tube wall thickness up to 0.083”, depending on the application and tube material.
Cold Header Machines
The Overton Cold Header Machine is a beast. If you’re searching for a productivity solution that can produce parts day after day after day, look no further. Say goodbye to the headaches found in many other machines. An optional rail system makes it easy to move the equipment in and out for maintenance. Quality engineering means one operator can easily maintain the machine when needed. Comes in a variety of tonnages, up to 75 ton standard (with additional tonnages available on a custom basis…just ask).
