Radial crimping without eccentricity
Machine for radially crimping rubber hoses (Air Sleeves) with a metal ring. The main goal was to eliminate the eccentricity of crimping. The phenomenon occurs in typical simple crimping machines with one fixed jaw, pressed against it. The machine consists of two stations - preliminary assembly of the rubber element and manual loading and crimping. Estimated crimping force up to 3500 kN. The station is most often a gas spring assembly line module, while the developed radial crimping technology can be used wherever this process is part of the production.
