In Greek, Aristo means “best”. To you it means that we are committed to designing, manufacturing, delivering, and supporting tube end forming systems that offer superior value to you.

Tube End Forming Definitions:

  • Sizing -- forming the end of the tube to a specific roundness & concentricity specification
  • Drop in style I/O segmented tooling -- six- or eight-segment dies (close on outside of the tube) and fingers (open on inside of the tube) in self contained barrel (housing) that can easily be dropped into the machine / removed from the machine for quick changeover to another tool set. Six or eight face arbor completes set.
  • "C" style tooling -- drop in style segmented tooling, but with only a set of dies (reduce only) or fingers (expand only)
  • "E" style tooling -- ram forming tooling, comprised of clamping dies (for holding the tube during the ram forming cycle) and ram tool.

For more information on I/O sizing, reducing, expanding, beading, dimpling and flaring tube end forming
