I/O Sizing, reducing, expanding, beading, dimpling, and flaring.

 

The A:601 I/O Sizer is optimal for a flexible work cell (small lots, frequent changeovers, many items).

I/O Sizing, reducing, expanding, beading, dimpling, and flaring. 

A:601 I/O Sizer Features

Integrates standard control system components based on Vickers proportional valves & Baluff linear transducers with own user-friendly operator program based on Allen Bradley SLC 503
  • Uses 20 HP Vickers motor pump package & efficient 6” hydraulic cylinders to deliver over 56K lbf for forming pipes up to 3” in diameter at sound level of only 74 dB
  • Enables standard universal tooling for quick change over & efficient utilization of tooling
  • Tooling repeatability to .001”
  • Requires only 24 sq. ft.
  • Integrates standard control system components based on Vickers proportional valves & Baluff linear transducers with own user-friendly operator program based on Allen Bradley SLC 503
  • Facilitates maintenance with total access design & modular construction

Standard control, simple software.

The A:601 uses a standard Allen Bradley SLC 503 system. Aristo's unique structure for the program enables quick setups and greater forming results from a single setup. The sizer of choice when you're forming tubes up to 3" in diameter, the A:601 uses a 6" diameter hydraulic cylinder that delivers more than 56,000 lb. forming force. With standard universal tooling, simple-to-learn Allen Bradley control, powerful Vickers motor pump package and modular construction, it's a superior solution with a footprint of just 24 square feet.


Tooling Features:

  • Universal I/O drop-in tooling for quick change convenience
  • Tool ejector mechanism for easier tool removal

Allen Bradley Control PanelControl Features:

  • Allen Bradley SLC 503 based system
  • Memory storage for up to 12 part numbers
  • Manual switches for setup operaiton
  • Panelview 900 with active matrix operator terminal
  • Operating and maintenance diagnostics and warnings.

Program Features:

  • Unique part definition within program (part specific ZERO set) enables quicker more accurate setup
  • Up to 4 hits per cycle can be programmed
  • Each hit can have different values, enabling 'pre'-expand or reduce operation
  • Eight standard sequences available in program

Hydraulic Features:

  • 20 HP Vickers integrated motor and piston  pump rated to 3000 psi
  • 6" diameter heavy duty hydraulic cylinder delivers 56,000 ibf
  • Piston pumps unload at idle for less wear, better filtration, less heat build up
  • Vickers proportional valves and baluff linear transducers for superior accuracy, faster response, and machine repeatability to .001"
  • 100 gallon reservoir
  • Sensors for low oil, temperature, and dirty filter

Machine Design:

  • Oil cooled sound enclosed motor / pump for quiet (<75dB) operation
  • 2 x 7' footprint for efficient use of floorspace
  • Standard components to minimize inventory and downtime
  • Easy access valves, motor / pump, oil tank
  • Water cooled heat exchanger standard: Air cooled option
  • Flood coolant standard

For larger tube end forming needs, see the A:801 I/O Sizer

See the A:680 — 8" hydraulic cylinder back-to-back with 6" cylinder for tubes up to 3" in diameter, especially for reductions requiring significant forming force.
