The patented SelectForm® Model M6 Series Modular End Forming Tools accurately expand, reduce, bead, or flare a shape on tube ends with diameters from 3.00 in. to 6.00 in. OD (76.2 mm to 152.4 mm OD). The head modules of these tools are designed to be easily interchangeable. When combined with the SelectForm® Model 400 Hydraulic Power Unit, the tools can be mounted as a single-station or multi-station configuration on top of the power source.
The Model M6 Series Tools are precision-machined from heat-treated stainless steel to prolong tool life and produce accurate forms every time. The tool is easy to use, simply place the tool over the tube and depress the foot switch on the power source. The tool cycles automatically and produces the finished form in 5 to 8 seconds. The tools are designed to produce a exclusive shape with low surface marring.
