Model M71-H-6 Tube End Forming System


The Manchester model M71-H-6 is a hydraulically operated machine that uses a programmable six position rotary tool holder. The machine is easily programmed to make one through six strokes and a simple adjustment determines the length of the return stroke for improved cycle times. The rotary tool holder allows for the use of larger spring loaded punches required for many of today's end form requirements. See the video!
